I haven’t written in so long! I know that you have missed me but, I am back to report from my travels. I won’t bore you… I’ll get right to it. Let’s start with Paris, France. When I was in Paris last summer, one of the things I tried was the famous macaroons, which by the way were invented in Paris. Yup, true story. People actually stand in line to visit the famous place called Ladurée located on the Champs Elysees avenue. I walked inside and it was very much what I expected – very enchanting and you can tell it’s had a long history (1862 to be exact). The then Parisian tea room was and still is family owned started by Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from the southwest of France, who founded the bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. Read more of it’s history here.
Here’s a photo I quickly snapped while being inside :) Look at those stools!!
Of course, I indulged on some macaroons for myself! When in Paris..I bought a box of six and cost about 18 Euros. It was really hard to choose but a few I do remember I picked were Lily of the Valley which is the mint color, raspberry, and chocolate. All incredibly delectable! Words can’t describe!
Is your mouth watering yet?? Do not fret! If you’re up for an adventure, there is a store in NYC on Madison Avenue if you’d like to go try them or you can order them online but they won’t be as fresh. I mean if you want to fly all the way to Paris, by all means go :) Allez!!
