Vegan Macarons in Paris? They Exist, and They’re Delicious

by | January 1, 2019

Alongside éclairs and croissants, the macaron is another famous French delicacy. While in Paris, do as the Parisians do and this includes eating as many of these delicious cookies that your little heart desires. So, where to get the best vegan macarons in Paris? After much searching and some failures, I have found Gentle Gourmet Café, a specialty vegan haute-cuisine restaurant located in the Bastille sector of Paris. In addition to very fancy seasonal menus, at Gentle Gourmet, you can also find what I think are the world’s most delicious macarons. The best part? They’re vegan and gluten-free.

Gentle Gourmet has an all-vegan menu if you would like to have lunch but if you are only interested in getting macarons, think about ordering from their website for either delivery or pick-up early in the day because they will quickly sell out! Delivery is offered throughout Paris and you can order your macrons up to twenty-four hours in advance. Boxes containing either six or twelve vegan macarons are offered as well as the choice between Macarons de Saison (seasonal flavors) and Macarons Classique (classic flavors). The classic set is my favorite, which includes vanilla, pistachio, hazelnut, lemon, strawberry, and chestnut. Just be mindful of how many you order since it is recommended to eat them within five days of reception.

Miss your chance? Don’t worry, because Gentle Gourmet offers a wide range of other vegan-friendly pastries including pain au chocolat and a selection of cakes. Not only that but Amorino Gelato, where you can enjoy a lovely vegan sorbet rose, is also situated in Bastille. Enjoy your temporary dessert and try again tomorrow.

Just when you thought that this restaurant was cool enough, they also have culinary courses offered in both vegan cooking and vegan baking which can range from one to fourteen days depending on the formation you choose. In the courses, you’ll learn important aspects of vegan gastronomy from well-seasoned chefs. These courses don’t come cheap, running between fifteen hundred to nearly three thousand euros per formation. It’s for that reason, that this is something that will go on my bucket list of things that I will do if I ever win the lottery.
