Rachel Hanretty, Mademoiselle Macaron
Rachel Hanretty created Mademoiselle Macaron: a cheeky lassie bringing the luxury of French macarons and Parisian style to her native Scotland. She is on a diplomatic mission: to reengage the Auld Alliance through style, sugar and banter. From producing at home and selling French macarons at food markets in Edinburgh, Rachel has now opened her own cafe and patisserie on Grindlay Street in Edinburgh in May 2014. She hopes to grow her business to sell macarons online and develop a chain of cafes and champagne bars.
