Meet the Macaronista
Charlette is a home baker turned professional pastry chef. She is passionate about offering exceptional taste experiences that leaves patrons with a desire for more. In her culinary journey she discovered macarons and their versatility in appearance and flavor. She found a way to combine the delicious little morsel with the tastes of both her culinary heritage and popular tastes of today. By sharing her macarons she’s found the perfect way to connect rich, flavorful cultural history by replicating these diverse flavors in her premium handcrafted macarons.
It’s amazing how tastes can establish fond nostalgic memories. I discovered this after longing for my Grandmother’s delectable desserts once I was on my own. Her pies, cakes and sweet treats were a family indulgence in my childhood. They were made with love and always presented with elegance
Meet The Macaron
Yep!... MacarOn not, MacarOOn
Macaron making began in the 8th century A.D. During the Renaissance, Catherine de' Medici's Italian pastry chefs made macarons when she brought them with her to France in 1533 upon marrying Heny II of France.
By the 1830s French macarons were served sandwiched with fillings of jams, liqueur creme, and ganache. This type of macaron is recognized as the colorful Parisian that most many are familiar with now. Many other regions of France still make their own version of the macaron and are named after the region.
History Making Macarons
Lady Belle Macarons surpasses the standard macaron in the quality, intensity and variety of flavors we create.
In addition to our popular Parisian style macarons, Lady Belle also offers our own brand of rustic macarons (Belle Bites) inspired from other regions, such as Amiens, France.
Our macarons are infused with Southern flavors that honor cultural traditions placing those flavors front and center in an internationally recognized pastry.
Lady Belle Macarons are not just a dessert, they symbolize a movement of crossing the cultural divide, inspiring unity one bite at a time!

Time to Indulge!
The colorful Parisian macarons sandwiched with a creamy filling are the most recognizable and well known today. But did you know that Macarons can be traced back to the 17th century? Amiens, France is one of many French regions that makes their own "old fashioned" version.
Lady Belle has re-imagined this macaron version, traditionally flavored by honey, and taken it to the next level with flavor profiles that pair well with your favorite coffees and teas (or a treat by itself!). And, as with our Parisian Macarons, they are gluten free!
