No panic when we tell you that during an escape in Sofia we tested Raffaello, Pierre or even Marie-Anttoinette, all so delicious. We just discovered a very nice macarons brand, Chez Fefe, the first French macaron brand in Bulgaria.
Christmas special events are super well organized in Sofia, also a nice occasion to discover new Bulgarian brands having their stand there. It’s during one of them that we discovered Chez Fefe, a French macaron pastry. Naturally, you can easily imagine the number of people (especially women..) stuck in front of the christmas stand as captivated by the astronomical quantity of pretty and full colored macarons waiting to be chewed. Raffaello looked super nice, but that we would like also taste well Carmen or Pierre..
A few days later, we went to the Sofia downtown shop, near the Vitosha Boulevard. Here it is possible to settle down for a very aromatic coffee or tea, or a special fresh juice while tasting macarons. Geya, the Founder of Chez Fefe, a very friendly and so passionate women, welcomed us. We spend a very nice moment to taste Raffaello and many others (in 4 words : unctuous, delicate, crunchy and diabolic -> because « Again, Again, Again« !) with a delicious fresh red juice.
Geya told us a lot about her brand and its way to make macarons, following completely the French culinary doctrine. Every day, the bakers prepare manually in a completely open kitchen in front of the clients the 20 kinds of macarons called with a personal name (Pierre : passion fruit from Thailand with milk chocolate; Marie : fresh raspberry with hints of lemon; Raffaello : coconut with white rum, pineapple and white chocolate; Francois : soft milk chocolate with hazelnuts; Rosette : rosa yogurt and dried raspberries, etc..). The macaron pasta is made by hand, each going at least 11 times in the hands of a master confectioner before it reaches the window of the boutique.
The macaron of Chez Fefe are really delicious and the place is so welcome and colorful. But if you want something else, you can also taste cupcakes, just as fantastic.
Chez Fefe delivers all over Bulgaria 2 times a week, proposes caterer services for your private parties and corporate events and gift boxes for girls and boys. Definitely a place to adopt for your friendly moments.
