Culinary students bake up Valentine’s Day surprises

Variety of flavors offered

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Culinary students have been working diligently to get the ‘macarongrams’ sold and delivered by the holiday.

“Macarons are super popular right now, we thought it would appeal to the student population,” Culinary Arts Chef Micheal Hadobas said. “My pastry students have been begging me since the first day of school to learn how to make macarons, so this was the perfect opportunity.” 

The macarongrams are currently available for order now through February 7th via Google Form. Each box contains three cookies, available in dark chocolate, raspberry and passion fruit flavors.

“I remembered the excitement that I had when I would get a Valentine’s Day gram,” Hadobas said. “I wanted to recreate that for our students here on campus.”

The money raised from selling ‘macarongrams’ will go directly to the Culinary Arts program to continue paying for new materials and ingredients for future projects. 

“The macarons were a lot more difficult to make than expected,” Battagila said. “However the challenge has been a lot more enjoyable than our normal cooking.”

Are you buying a macaron gram this year?
