Macarons from Laduree

ladureemacarons

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.

I totally agree with you: they are definitely the best of all the macarons I've tried! I have just returned from Nice where I tried pretty good ones at " Patisserie Lac", but the filling was not as good as Laduree's. Here in Vienna, you can find pretty decent macarons as well.

If that is not the most adorable box...

What nice friends you have! If the fact that those macarons are delicious weren't enough, the candy colors are reason enough to have them round (though I suppose not for long, heh heh).

The French certainly know how to package things as well as bake them. I agree- I would pick the vanilla first. Wonder if there was any caramel in it? That would make it even better!

I am happy that you liked it! The flavours were chocolate, pistache, vanilla and framboise.
