Laduree: Chic Macarons!

Laduree is a famous name when it comes to macarons. It is a luxury bakery that goes all the way back to 1862. However, it rose to fame in 1930 when the grandson of Louis-Ernest Laduree, Monsieur Pierre Desfointaines had the idea of sticking two macaron shells together with a ganache filling in the middle. And as they say, the rest is history. source: Laduree

My cousin who is based in France, arrived early this month and I told her I wanted some Laduree macarons. And aside from the "pasalubong," she even took photos of the shop. Merci!



The shop doesn't look like the usual pastry shops. From afar, you'll think that this store is selling perfumes or other beauty items.


They sell marmalades and jams, too. Then there's the tote bags and pouches and collectible boxes.


A visual feast.


And with chandeliers to booth! I bet they're real crystals. :)


Macarons. Lovely colorful macarons. I'd love to stare at them the whole day.


Truffles.



They even have Laduree Champagne! I love bubbles. ;)


And there's my brown box of macarons. Ola got the blue retro-ish box while Anna got the cylindrical one. Merci Beaucoup, Ate Mona. Mwah mwah!


Stay tuned for my Laduree Macarons review next time. :)
