Postcard from Paris: Macaroons at Laduree

Postcard from Paris: Macaroons at Laduree

I became totally immersed in the French culture upon arrival. After years of study, I was ready to experience what 7 years of learning- including “la cuisine.”  A big part of the French cuisine are the pastries which include the double-sided macaroon. The double-sided macaroon is a pastry made popular by Catherine de Medicis. Macaroons are sold all over France in fun colors and delectable flavors. One of the most popular bakeries selling macaroon is Laduree, a café and tea room with several locations throughout France. The famed spot makes thousands of macaroons daily. Laduree’s macaroons are second to none- so popular that the confectioner was used to produce pastries seen in the movie “Marie Antoinette.”
 
Hubby and I spent the afternoon eating macaroons at  Laduree’s  Champs Elysees location. After a full day of walking around the Louvre. It was a nice treat. I had the opportunity to try the newest flavor, Orange Blossom. Delish!

  1. Now this post has done nothing but stir up my sweet tooth to the throb of ache. That’s right, aching for something sweet with lots of calories followed by a recipe to get me going. You sound like you have invested a lot of time into your studies and to see it pay off is better than lottery winnings. Just think about the people who put in 5 years and have only application to show for it. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day. Thanks for sharing your travels, it’s always enjoyable to learn about a new place to enjoy good food and family.
