It’s no secret that I love macarons, nor that I particularly love French macarons from Laduree. While I can’t visit Paris on the regular, I can and do visit New York with relative frequency. On my last trip, I made it a priority to stop into Laduree. It was a macaron pilgrimage that will be repeated on many future visits, I predict.
The thing I love about Laduree is that every detail is exquisitely beautiful: the macarons themselves, the packaging, the window displays. All perfectly lovely and perfectly French.
All the flavors I have tried at Laduree have been amazing, but I have to recommend one in particular: caramel with salted buttercream. It is simply to die for, with so much richness and deliciousness packed into one tiny cookie. Perfection in macaron form.
