Paris at home

We took a little bit of Paris home. It tasted like bergamot, rose, black current-violet, pistacio, and lasted about three days.

I would LOVE to try Laduree macarons...the closest I have come to anything like this was last May when I was in Los Angeles and went to Paulette Macaron in Beverly Hills...they were to die for!

Mmm sugary goodness

The Clever Pup said...

I'm glad you savoured them. As a sugar addict I probably would have eaten them all at once.

I'm glad you had a nice time.

Macarons, too pretty to eat and too hard to bake yourself.

You missed a marvelous thunder storm this morning.

ToriMori said...

Three whole days, I am very impressed! Beautiful plates and a lovely touch of lace too. mmmmmm x

SockMonkey said...

These look almost too pretty to eat.

Lobster and swan said...

Definitely missing out if you haven't ever tasted one.

I love thunder storms!

I guess some would say they are expensive, but they are like the champagne or caviar of the cake world. Truly exquisite.

Oh Laduree you make me so happy! Are the bergamot fabulous?

Kate said...

I think these are so pretty and the shop on Piccadilly is just insane, but for some reason I am not tempted to eat them... Don't know why!

Quixsa said...

Lovely pictures!
Just over the weekend I ventured to a gallery hop where the same treats you feature were sampled. I could not get enough! Simply yummy in the tummy.

oh oh oh how I crave a bright macaroon now! Bergamot, or rose, or violet, or all of them really. What a sweet blog this is.

Simply Mel said...

Lauduree always wins my heart over and over again - beautiful photos!

Bri said...

I can't believe they lasted that long! This is like the 4th time today I've seen those - very strange.

Lena said...

I enjoy looking at macaroons more than eating them.

I'm impressed that they lasted three days. You know, I think that second to last photograph would make the most beautiful postcard, printed on heavy, lovely paper with the old fashioned grey flourish on the back.
