As Seen on The Knot

ABOUT

our story

 I’m a professional linguist and translator. Making pastry has always been a love of mine which existed at a level of a hobby, up to the point when I visited  Paris.

While in Paris, I was drawn to small, colorful pastry I came across in each and every bakery. The famous French macaron! “Cookie” seems to be too trivial a word to describe delicate texture, fragile structure and exquisite taste of a true macaron. Macaron is one of a kind.

A long time has passed since I visited Paris. An idea grew stronger and stronger in my mind — to learn how to bake perfect French macarons. First, the idea seemed abstract, vague and unreal. With time, it started to take shape and color and, finally, became concrete and tangible. 

I had my vision and my etalon — the perfect macaron that I tasted in Paris. At that point I set out to re-create this beauty and taste, and I have gone a long way since then.One evening, I could no longer idly dream about my project but began to act. 

Any beginning is, probably, the most important step on the way. It’s much more than a simple action. It is a physical, material manifestation of an idea, the foundation of what will come into being later. Knowing, how important it is to start, I grabbed the 1st recipe I came across. This is how The Art of Pastry emerged.​
