Needing no introduction, Laduree is the world’s most famous pastry shop. We stopped by their location in Paris’ 6th to try their famous macarons. The shop is beautifully decorated and the macaron display is the focal point. They offer eighteen different flavors of macarons, of which we sampled eleven. The macarons were pretty soft all the way through without much crunch on the shell. The flavors were hit or miss. The gingerbread, pistachio, vanilla, lemon, rose and chocolate flavors being the best of them. Next we plan to try the macarons at Pierre Herme for comparison.
