There are very few women I know that do not enjoy the immense extacy of a laduree macaroon. As if it were yesterday I remember the first time I stepped into the fairtale salon of the rue royal Laduree in Paris. From the angels on the walls to the exquite boxes filled with sweet coloured macaroons, I instantly knew that this would be one of my favourite things. I would fly to Paris tonight, just of the taste of perfection of this mouth watering piece of food.
Macaroon's according to the Laduree website:
These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are made every morning in Ladurée’s "laboratory". With each new season, Ladurée pays tribute to this its most famous creation by creating a new flavour.
