While oggling these at the Louvre,
17th century medallions (bejewelled)
and enamel painted
I was imagining this at the same time.
Can´t help but think and drool on these...
The caramel and salted butter, citron and pistachio is a must but you can try all flavors! ;) They´re soft, chewy, yummy and they melt in your mouth. Haay! Even my sweeth tooth hubz agrees with me, totally. The not so nice thing is, they don´t come cheap. A small piece costs 1.50 euros. So I bought 100 grams ( 7.50 euros for 6 pieces, not bad at all!) Since I´m cheap(hehe!), I didn´t buy the box. A small box with 6 pieces of small macarons costs twice. The nicer and bigger the box, the higher the price. I just wanted to taste the
macarons. Maybe next time I´ll buy the box too, to keep my loose buttons. ;)
This is the Ladurée store at 75, Avenue des Champs Elysées. Go by the side door for your fill of French macarons. I waited about 15-20 minutes to get my mini-order. Lots of people inside but it was worth the wait. They speak perfect English too and so ordering was a breeze and a plus, the store attendants were very friendly. :)
Have a lovely weekend, dahlings!
PS: I´m actually back in Spain right now. See more my travel photos in my travel blog here.
