The instant I clapped eyes on the celadon green coloured store in Saint Germain, there was no question I was in Paris. It was undeniably stylish, tasteful and very French. I am talking, of course, about Ladurée.
Inside I was subjected to a feast for all my senses. Visually the store was beautifully presented with a range of elegant treats ranging from macarons to cakes and pastries. Handsome presentation boxes adorned the counter space and shelves on the walls. There was a buzz of activity not only from my fellow customers but the staff as well.
I greedily ordered half a dozen macarons (chocolat, vanilla, framboise). Each flavour was a delight to savour – albeit the savouring did not last for long! During my time in Paris, I visited Ladurée multiple times. It was quite a challenge for my waistline, but well worth the experience.
If you are obsessed with the macaron (like myself), you cannot go past a visit to Ladurée. It truly is a special piece of France. Trés Belle.
