Last week, our former intern Dana Loia showed us her pro tips for making French macarons. Now you can buy them ready-made, thanks to her brand-new business Dana's Bakery!

With classic French style but a decidedly American twist, Dana's macarons come in flavors like Birthday Cake (complete with gorgeous pink swirling and edible glitter), Fruity Pebbles (our editorial assistant Brette's favorite), and Peanut Butter & Jelly (like a Girls Scouts Tagalong after a semester abroad in Paris). (The other 9 flavors are S'mores, Thin Mint, Caramel Popcorn, Choco-Lot, Orange Creamsicle, Cookie Dough (!), Cup of Joe, Key Lime Pie, and Red Velvet. Amazing, right?)

Delivery is currently limited to New York, with pickup locations in the West Village at Corrado Bread & Pastry, and at Dana's HQ in Hawthorne, NJ. But don't worry, national shipping is on its way!

Meanwhile, we're thrilled to offer FOOD52 readers 20% your first order at Dana's Bakery -- just enter the code DBOPEN at checkout.

Inspired by the fabulous lunches in Christopher and Melissa's Canal House newsletter (check it out if you haven't already), we thought we'd start sharing the best discoveries from our food lives.
