Macarons come in a variety of colors and flavors. On March 20th, during the Hungarian Macaron Day, visitors will have a chance to taste, smell and even learn how to bake macarons. The program starts at 3 pm and it includes a Macaron Fare, a Macaron Competition and lots of delicious pastries.

One of Hungary’s best restaurants, Fáma Budapest, is set to introduce macarons in Asia-inspired flavours (Yuzu, Sancho pepper, Calamondin, Matcha tea, Sesame seed, Black sesame seed, Raspberry, Miso).
