With its rich and buttery caramel filling this macaron from Ladurée is dangerously addictive….After a bite of this divine macaron Caramel Fleur de Sel you can’t help craving for yet another one….
Ladurée – 16 Rue Bonaparte
…. my macarons. On the photo above you can see an almond macaron with fluffy marshmallow, from Ladurée. The two others who never made it to be captured on photo (and went straight in my mouth) were a rose and a pistachio macaron.
Everyday I went to a Ladurée in London buying some macarons to end my evening in a sweet and delicate way. Yes, I had very sweet days in London….
Ladurée in Stockholm was supposed to open in the middle of April but it seems they are running late on their time-schedule. When I was passing by the boutique (situated at Grev Turegatan) on May 5th it looked like this (see the photo above).
I can only say one thing, work harder, work faster!
Oh, by the way…did you know that there will be one Ladurée in Copenhagen (lucky me!!!), one in Oslo, Malmoe and a second one in Stockholm? Ladurée is expanding ;-)
FR: Ladurée, bientôt à Stockholm, en Suède.
Rue Jacob is a charming street in St Germain in Paris and since there was a period I was working at Ladurée Bonaparte that is situated in the intersection of Rue Jacob and Rue Bonaparte, I was walking on Rue Jacob pretty often. While working at Ladurée and I had my daily breaks I always used to go out and have a 15 minutes of walk exploring the area and looking in the display windows of the boutiques…..often dreaming about the beautiful Hervé Léger dresses in the Hervé L.Leroux boutique next to Ladurée…or just being fascinated by the beautiful buildings…decorated with typical French shutters, antique lanterns, boutique signs and the building facade covered with the dirt of exhaust fumes, they all showed signs of the years that had passed….
Yes, it is true and now it’s official! Ladurée will open a boutique in Stockholm :-) If you can’t make it to Paris, then Paris comes to you…that goes for the people living in Stockholm that soon will be able to endulge themselves with the most delicious macarones in the whole world. I’m not saying that just because I’ve been working at Ladurée in Paris, but I have tasted macarones from different “brands”…and even in Sweden…they’re not even comparable to the ones that are served at Ladurée. So I’m truly happy that the Swedish people finally can buy delicious and heavenily tasty macarones at Ladurée in Stockholm very, very soon! To be continued……..
Bought a box with macarones from Ladurée last week….couldn’t resist to play with them on our kitchen table before I tried them…one by one ;-)
With a box of macarones from Ladurée I took the plane and went back to Stockholm, Sweden :-)
Me and my daily treats at Ladurée :-) I only have a 5 minutes of walk to the closest Ladurée from where I live now, just like when I was living in Odéon, love that! But I’m not sure what my dentist thinks about that ;-)
In France it’s a tradition to eat a Galette des Rois on January 6th. I bought one yesterday at Ladurée, because I know they make one of the best ones ;-)
Last night my landlord had some friends over for dinner so we had my galette des rois as dessert and I got the porcelain figure, see the photo below! Cute, no?
The cake is pretty simple, it’s made by puff pastry and almond cream and there is a fèvre (usually a figure made in porcelain) hidden in the cake. Due to the tradition one person has to go under the table and the person that cuts the cake has to ask the person under the table who shall get the piece of cake until everyone has got a piece. And the one that gets the porceain figure will be the king or queen of the day :-)
