Pretty Ladurée macarons from Paris

Gifts from a dear friend, all the way from London.

Sweet treats from Ladurée

Ladurée macarons from Paris

For the uninitiated, Ladurée is a renowned luxury cake and pastry shop with boutique shops in Paris, Beirut, Dublin, Geneva, Lausanne, London, Milan, Monaco, Nagoya, Tokyo and Zurich. It is known as the inventor of the double–decker macaron – 15,000 of which are sold daily. Ladurée is said to be the best macaron shop in the world.

The history of Parisian tea salons is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from France’s southwest, opened a bakery at 16 rue Royale in Paris.

None other than my favourite Thorntons chocolates!
