Paris Pastries: Ladurée at Rue Bonaparte
After my lovely experience with Ladurée at the Printemps, I hunted down
one of their stores in the 6th arrondissement in Paris.
The shop lies on the corner of a quiet street.
Ladurée's signature green facade can be spotted from afar.
Ombre-effect macaron towers stand in the window display on one side.
Ice cream 'glacé' cups stand on the other side.
Raspberry macaron tower.
Confitures and miel (jams and honey).
Even bath products.
Ladurée's shop on Rue Bonaparte is not just for picking up pastries, you can
also eat a 3-course meal in the restaurant.
I am not the biggest fan of baking macarons myself, so when I'm in Paris
I have the luxury of buying them.
I bought cinq (five), 4 flavors I hadn't tried before.
Melon, Salted Caramel, Rose, Minty Strawberry & Almond - Cherry.
Rose will always be one of my favorite macaron flavors, which I have
succesfully recreated myself, but I was pleasantly surprised with some
of the new flavors like melon and minty strawberry.
The salted caramel wasn't just filled with a caramel buttercream, but
instead had a thick caramel sauce-like filling!
