What We’re Loving: François Payard’s Rosh Hashanah Macarons

A French take on Jewish sweet treat, and a Payard recipe

Get these tasty sweet treats to help celebrate a sweet new year!

Around the holidays, we all get nostalgic for traditional tastes, but wouldn’t it be nice to blend timeless flavor with unique variety?

Chef François Payard is known for his skills in classic pastry, but his adventurous nature is what defines him as a champion of the baking world. Traditional pastry is something he learned by his grandparents' side in their bakery shop on the French Riviera, Au Nid des Friandises. When the opportunity arose for him to move to Paris to master his craft, his palate grew with him. So when it comes to sweets, tradition, and holiday decadence, he knows just how to artfully blend the three.

For those intrigued by the traditional Jewish dessert and French pastry fusion, Payard is introducing a Rosh Hashanah macaron collection with an assortment of green apple and honey macarons and raisin pecan macarons available for $29 for a 12-piece box. Payard also brought back his popular apple honey cake, available at any Manhattan Payard location, for $39 for six people or $52 for eight.
