Bienvenue à Ladurée!





I hear from friends Daryl and Conrad in NYC that Ladurée has opened a small shop there, and the crowds are still wrapping around the block eager to have a taste of the Parisian delight.... le macaron.  Like most things Parisian, I think they're best tasted right there in Paris.  Today, Ladurée -16 rue Royale.


Yesterday I had a little puzzle for you and the winner is..........Veronique ( French Girl in Seattle), who correctly guessed that I was sitting on the steps of the Panthéon when I took the photograph. Thank you all for joining in the fun. Wayne so kindly pointed out that there seemed to be no prize and I gently reminded him that the personal satisfaction of winning was worth far more than un petit cadeau!

How much do they sell those NewYorkais macarons, I wonder? $5 a piece? More? I think I will still order New York cheesecake with black coffee next time I visit the East Coast ;-) -- Veronique

Don't those macarons just make you happy! I found a tea shop in Orange County (Paris in a Cup) that makes them... i'm hooked! Now my 'dream trip' back to France will have to include a visit to Laduree!

Miam, V! I was at the Ladurée New York store the day they opened. Bought 6, all the same flavor (my absolute dead fave, caramel au beurre salé). Veronique -- don't remember the exact price, but they were under $3 apiece.

Le macaron in all its glory! Definitely deserving of all this fancy artwork.
