Parlez-moi de Macarons…

If McDonalds is to food what H&M is to the fashion industry… Then Ladurée would definitely be the Dior Haute Couture of food…

Flawless presentation, a menu to die for and color palette that will make your mouth melt instantly… What more could you ask?

Ladurée is the gourmands ultimate culinary experience… A pure bliss!

So… I know what you might be thinking… “This looks very nice but it must have a lots of calories…” Well in this case, calories are to food what hours of work is to a couture dress… Absolutely necessary!
Also I happen to know that food that beautiful doesn’t make you gain weight… Ok I hear you “What?!! How?
Well it’s very simple… First of all, you spend so much time looking and talking about it that you’re loosing calories before even had time to take the first bite. Secondly, the amount spent “oohing”, and “mmmhing” while eating is as good as an hour of sit ups. That is of course, my theory and I am sticking by it!
But it only works if you are sincere about it…
No better way to illustrate the secret affair fashion has with food than with the limited edition of Macaroons the designer, John Galliano created this winter for Ladurée. The delicious rose and ginger macaroons were inspired by his perfume “Parlez-moi d’amour” and are available since last month in cute boxes of 6, 12 and 18.
Not only is their food nice, but so is their staff (believe me, something quite rare in Paris;). Our waitress kindly offered us to try them, and I have to say… Ooh la la!

Below, a video for Galliano’s perfume, directed by the amazing German photographer, Ellen Von Unwerth
You can also have a look at her book “Fraulein” published by Taschen which gathers her beautiful collection of photographs. I wouldn’t advise you to buy it as it cost 750 euros (!!!) but you can browse through it in the shop. As for her other videos, they can be seen here.

    You're so right! I had some Ladurée macarons in London (yeah, I know). Delicious, amazing colors and taste… Violet was one of my favorites

    They are my obsession, really.

    Especially pistache and chocolate… mmmmmhhh

    When I read this for a moment I thought that they opened a shop in Belgium… I checked on their website and it seems not and I am very glad… I'm not ready to start my new life as a macaron-stuffed whale yet!

    Thanks for the delicious photos!;-)
