People ask me all the time if I love cooking and macarons and of course I do but that's not what made me set up Mademoiselle Macaron. I am driven by the smiles on people's faces when they see how colourful and beautiful our macarons are and then I see them light up when they bite into them and realise how delicious they are. That's what drives my work at Mademoiselle Macaron. I am truly lucky to have a wonderful team around me to ensure every Mademoiselle and Monsieur get to have their moment of luxury.
Born and raised in the South of England, Maddy very proudly holds the position of kitchen head. Holding a degree from the University of Edinburgh, she has worked in many renowned restaurants, chocolate kitchens, bars and cafes, learning as much as possible. Her favourite macaron is Chocolate Peanut Butter.
Annie was born and raised in the beautiful country of Colombia. Her culinary journey began many years ago when she was still in school. She followed her love and curiosity of food which led her to Edinburgh, working as a professional Macaronist at Mademoiselle Macaron. Chocolate & Passion Fruit and Strawberry are her favourite macaron flavours.
Chris had already taken one of our macaron classes and eaten many a macaron before he joined the team in May 2019. You will find him at our Waverley Kiosk where he might be nibbling on his favourite flavour of macaron - salted caramel!
Andy is our P&P Monsieur! He takes care of our macarons on the final leg of their journey out of the kitchen. You can reach out to him for questions about your order. He has yet to disclose his favourite macaron flavour...
Jen is our longest serving member of staff after having been recruited at age 14! Now at 18 Jen is off to college to study music technology but you'll still find her at Grassmarket serving customers on a Saturday and sometimes at our Waverley Kiosk. She's all smiles and has great Scottish banter!
Emma is super organised in the kitchen and her favourite macaron is lemon flavour! She swapped a kitchen in Linlithgow for our kitchen in Edinburgh and we're so glad she did!
Ludovica fitted right into our kitchen and has brought some Italian flare with her. By day she keeps her hair tied up and in a sexy blue hairnet and by night she releases the hair we are all jealous of! 😂
Csilla is one of our quietest macaronists and you're likely to find her captured in our instagram stories as she quickly pipes the fillings onto the macaron shells!
Gillian is fast becoming our social organiser of the year and loves a Christmas jumper! She's a wonderful new member of the team.
Eleni is our Greek Goddess in the kitchen. We're lucky that her flatmate Annie, who also works in the kitchen, persuaded her to join!
Zoe wins on shortest commute to work and best fashion sense in the kitchen which we are quite envious of! She's a wee cutie patootie.
