Paris = Laduree


[From Wikipedia.com]
macaron (French pronunciation: [makaˈʁɔ̃])[1][2] is a sweet confectionery made with egg whitesicing sugargranulated sugaralmond powder or ground almond, and food coloring. The macaron is commonly filled with buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient.[3] It is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar.

The confectionery is characterized by its smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference (referred to as the "foot"), flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth.[4]

In Paris, the French pâtisserie Laduree[7][13] is reputed for making quality macarons in traditional and new flavors. Other reputed French patisseries on Macarons includes Pierre Hermé andFauchon.[14] In France, McDonald's sold macarons.[15]



Ladurée is a luxury cakes and pastries brand based in ParisFrance. It is known as the inventor of the double-decker macaron, fifteen thousand of which are sold every day. They are still one of the best known makers of macarons in the world.


Ladurée made the pastries for the film Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola; its famous macarons can be seen in a scene between Marie Antoinette and Ambassador Mercy.[4] They can also be seen in the CW'S hit teen drama Gossip Girl as Blair Waldorf's favorite pastries.

i got two boxes. this one was colorful on purpose, but I probably won't eat any of them
the other one is more tanned colors (hazelnut, coffee, chocolate) which I like more
the boxes are really for me to eventually use to store my jewelry or make up
