What’s your flavour? Macaron to support the nook appeal

What’s your flavour? Macaron to support the nook appeal

Feb 09, 2015
Dr Tim Kinnaird of ‘Macarons & More’ is asking the public to suggest flavours for the new purple and orange ‘EACHaron’ which will help to raise funds for the nook appeal

Tim worked as a consultant paediatrician at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital before leaving the medical profession to pursue a career in food after reaching the MasterChef final in 2010. 

Anyone with a flavoursome idea can make their suggestions in person at the Macarons & More shop in Norwich's Royal Arcade, or on the Macarons & More Facebook and Twitter pages from now until Saturday 21st February.Macaron postbox 300

Batches of the most interesting and popular flavour suggestions will then be made and families using EACH services will have the opportunity to taste them all at the end of February to decide the winning macaron flavour.  

Tim said: "We’re delighted to be supporting the nook appeal and thought a signature EACH macaron would be the perfect way to raise funds. 

“We’ve asked customers for flavour suggestions before and they’re come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful ideas. I hope the people of Norfolk don’t let us down in the quest for a perfect EACH macaron. We want it to look and taste fabulous so they’ll sell really well and raise funds for such an important charity which does vital work in our community.

“Leaving medicine was a complex and difficult decision - I spent 10 years working with children and young people and it was a privilege to do so. I’ve always had a love of food and MasterChef gave me the final push and confidence to move to a full time career in food. During my time as a doctor I saw just how important EACH was to local families and I’m delighted to support them in this career path.”
