Pilgrimage to Laduree
Laduree is a temple for Pâtisserie Students. And so, on one of our first afternoons off, where oh where did the students go? …
We decided to make a pilgrimage to Laduree and it fulfilled all our fantasies!
Set on the Champs-Élysées in a celadon green structure is a very old institution originally founded in another location on the Rue Royale in Paris in 1862. They are the inventors of the first double-decker macaron with a ganache filling.
This incarnation first opened in 1993 on the Champs-Élysées when it became part of an expanding empire of sugar! It emblem of chubby cherubs dressed as pastry cooks exemplifies the joy this place brings to thousands of people every day. The walls, floors and ceilings are covered in antiques and paintings and the multiple rooms are filled with multitudes of the French Elite and Tourists.
We had an unforgettable meal filled with perfectly balanced flavors and exotic ingredients, and every mouthful justified the exorbitant expense.
More photos will follow as we make future ventures inside its walls…
Just for fun here are some more photos of Paris…
