LADUREE {6 sweet secrets}


Get in mah belly, macarons!

I was a macaron virgin until 2 springs ago
when I baked some because we don't have a single
bakery in town, Paris is like expensive,
and I am a somewhat naive fearless baker.

Everywhere you turned in blogland
was one more sexy photo of a colorful macaron
and the celadon green facade of:

an elegant Paris pastry house.

With the opening of
Maison Laduree
in NYC,
the probability this blogger
will nibble Laduree yum
improves considerably!


On to sweet secrets!

Un.
Laduree made the pastries for the film
Marie Antoinette.


Deux.
Laduree is famous for double decker macarons
and sell 15,000 daily.


Trois.
Louis Ernest Laduree was a prolific writer.



Quatre.
Laduree's grandson Pierre Desfontaines
had the brilliant idea of opening a TEA ROOM
in 1930, which was a hit with women
(who at that time were not admitted to cafes!).


Cinq.
The international development of Laduree
began in 2005 with London.

  6. Hi Darling! Thanks for your comment. Cranberry Stilton sounds absolutely amazing.

  17. When I was in Paris a few years ago, it was one of my favorite shops. Not only was the decor spectacular, but the macarons were divine!!! They sure do know how to make things special in Paris!

  18. Oh, I absolutely adore this post!! My daughter studied abroad last year and I was lucky enough to travel to Paris to visit... and of course, I fell in love with the pastries, but especially the macaroons... they are as tasty as they are lovely :) The windows in the bakeries are just amazing; your pics brought back some wonderful memories.

  22. Oh.My.Sweets. LOVE this post! Mouth watering lovelies...ooh, I must have one of these soon! I've been debating whether or not to attempt to make some at home, as I've heard they are a bit challenging to make. However, this post might me think otherwise...hmmm... And can I also say that I truly adore your blog, pics and prose! Amazing writer to say the least!!! :) You are now on my blog side bar, as I wouldn't want to miss a thing!!! :)

    By the way, thank you so much for your kind words in my last post re: my dad - it is greatly appreciated! :)

  24. Oh this is the most gloriously lovely post EVER!! Just the thing for an overcast autumn day - thinking of gorgeously beautiful macaroons...mmmm!

    I know you can get them in Covenant Garden in London but sadly, I've never tried them! I'll have to have a look at your recipe because the thought of serving these little beauties at Christmas... oh perfection.

    Hope you are well, my dear and enjoying your weekend xxx

  25. I am not a Macaron girl at all. But I would happily enter that establishment and just sit down and take everything in! And I would order a dozen just so I get to walk home with a stunning box!

    Very pretty post.

    Love to you,

    Mon
