BY AL STRONG
Macarons by Al Strong, was founded in 2013. Professionally trained Pastry Chef, Al, first began selling his Macarons at Specialist Markets and Food Events in Cumbria. With a strong local following and press recognition for his Patisserie skills, he followed his dream of opening his first shop in Kendal in 2018.
In 2014, Al commissioned me to illustrate his macaron Menu. This would be printed as a menu at his stall, and put into every box sold. It was also used to illustrate which flavour was which in front of the macarons themselves. These were used for the entirety of his business, until he chose to close it down in 2020 due to Covid and family priorities.
