About Josephine

When Josephine arrived in Australia in 2009, her fine French palate felt that Melbourne’s macarons were lacking in flavour and texture. Already a passionate macaron maker, Josephine knew that Melbournians would prefer the quality of an authentic French macaron. Her first small batches made from home were received with great enthusiasm and Macarons by Josephine was born.

Josephine was taught the fine art of macarons by her aunt – a passionate food stylist and cook. Her macarons are made using a secret family recipe, the most important ingredient of all being patience. It’s also worth noting that Josephine is the only producer in Melbourne to make her macarons 100% by hand, rather than by machine.

As a former florist Josephine brings to bear her eye and her nose, making macarons that excite taste, smell and vision. She experiments tirelessly with combinations of flavours and fragrances to create the unexpected.

In a very short time, Josephine has gone from making just a few small batches to supplying leading Melbourne establishments such as Enoteca on Gertude Street and Earl Canteen. She also came runner up in Melbourne’s 2010 Best Macaron Competition. Continuing to capitalise on her success, in December 2012 she opened her beautiful café and store at 365 Sydney Road, Brunswick. So now you can enjoy Josephine’s treats wholesale and retail.
