Inspiration comes where you come from
Macaron originates from the fusion of the French “Art de Vivre” in tandem with Chinese culture. Macarons are an irresistible fine pastry of France, and at Ti Yan, we created them in the shape of , this number representing Prosperity and Fortune for the Chinese people. They are the perfect alliance of the double culture of its creators, Guillaume and Kean, of French origin for the former and of Chinese origin for the latter. This mix of cultures is also reflected in the taste, with a good balance between flavours with less sugar, and a pearl of salted caramel, emblematic of Brittany, a magnificent region of France, where Kean and Guillaume come from.
We find Brittany again in the shape of the that brought to Ti Yan’s logo. It comes from the Triskell, a celtic symbol in Brittany, that evokes dynamism, energy and enthousiasm. Finally, Ti Yan is the pronunciation of the Chinese word 体验, meaning Experience, an essential keyword on the road to success. We hope everyone can feel and enjoy this cultural enrichment whilst savouring these macaron .
Macaron should be pronounced Macaronette, a bit like Macaron-eight, the suffix “ette” designating in French all that is small and cute 😉
