I love tea time with macarons from Ladurée. These sweet little delicacies are always special. Packed in a beautiful box, that I mostly keep. Macarons are elaborately produced Biscuit balls, which are filled in the middle with a butter creme. Ladurée has around 40 varieties, with seasonally changing menu.
Granted, I could eat Macarons from Ladurée every day. Are the small temptations not irresistible? As beautiful as they are, so deliciously they are. My favorite flavoures are caramel or chocolate, but I also like the seasonal roses and orange blossom flavoures. What are your favourite flavoures?
Maison Ladurée is a traditional French pastry maker. Louis Ernest Ladurée opened in 1862 a fine bakery in Paris. With the opening of the opera the district changed to a nobel quarter and become famous. 1890, the shop where extended to a teashouse with a decorations by Jules Cheret. Pierre Desfontaines, a relative of Ladurée invented the typical recipe Macarons in the 20th century. The small pasteries where made until today by the same recipe and are still the trademarks of Ladurée.
