Let Them Eat... Ladurée

  Maybe it is my sweet tooth or the idea of luxury, maybe it’s because I have been re-learning French or maybe it’s just because they were on my bucket list but when I was visiting London Last week I treated myself to some Macaroons from Ladurée. Everything about the little patisserie I visited on Piccadilly end of the Burlington Arcade says decadence. Beautiful gold gilded display cases, prices in gold renaissance inspired frames, towers of macaroons and wonderful gift boxes for your purchases if you are buying for someone special {or treating yourself like me}.
I decided to try Dark Chocolate, Vanilla, Rose, Orange Blossom, Lemon, Marie Antoinette and Salted Caramel. I think depending on your tastes are I think depends on whether you will like them, I’m not a fan of coconut {which I’m told is used to make them} however I did enjoy these. They certainly wouldn’t be an everyday treat at £1.70 a Macaroon but as a one off they were fantastic. The only ones I didn’t particularly like were Rose as its flavour was so powerful and the Marie Antoinette.

Have you ever tried Ladurée?
