I've read about Ladurée on a few different blogs, so was quite pleased when I stumbled across their shop in Covent Garden as I've always wondered what the fuss was about! I couldn't resist popping in (despite the queues!) and buying a box.
It was £12ish (ouch) for a box of eight macaroons. I chose a mixture of raspberry, chocolate, caramel, rose, lemon & a few more I can't remember! They were all nicely wrapped up, and looked like this.
I'd like to tell you that I ate these daintily whilst wearing a tea dress and posing for photos (or some other type of blogger cliché) but I mainly munched them on the train back to Edinburgh when I was soggy and a bit grumpy (and looking like this). They were really delicious though. Really really delicious.
If you'd like to give them a go I have an easy macaroon recipe here! Mmm.
