ladurée: macarons

When Louis Ernest Ladurée was only 16, he opened a bakery in the heart of Paris in 1862. Ladurée now has tea-rooms/restaurants on the prestigious Champs-Elysées, as well as multiple other Parisian locations and international tea-rooms in London, Dublin, Geneva, Monaco, Tokyo, Milan and New York. In the middle of the twentieth century Pierre Desfontaines, cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, created the first Ladurée macaron by sticking two macaron cookies together and filling them with a flavorful ganache. Each year, Ladurée celebrates this little round cookie by creating seasonal flavors. Every season, the palette of colors and flavors grows, from the classic chocolate to exotic flavors inspired by locations, perfumes, and fashion designers. For the very first time, each of the eighty Ladurée macarons is chronicled – their aromas, inspirations, and of course, the recipes. Text by Vincent Lemains, photographs by Antonin Bonnet.
