Macarons from Laduree
We had friends over for dinner the other night - friends who came straight from Paris! Knowing what I'd love, they presented me with this cute little box and I was very excited to see an assortment of macarons from famous Ladurée. I'm really having fun making my own macarons, but it was perfect to get to try out these - many think that they're the best in the world. These were chocolate, pistachio, raspberry and I think vanilla - I loved them all, but the vanilla was really outstanding. Or was it really vanilla? It had a caramellish element to it that I really enjoyed.
