I was lucky enough to win a trip to Paris last year and during that trip I visited the famous and simply stunning Laduree for a champagne brunch. Unaware of what Laduree was before my visit (pah, and who says the British are ignorant!), I was swept up in the heavy decor, romance, elegance and all round luxuriousness of the place.
Laduree has now opened in Covent Garden and I visited a few weeks ago with my mum for some afternoon macaroons.
I’m not a huge fan of Covent Garden as a place to sit and while away the hours. I was before I lived in London but now the hustle and bustle pretty much makes me want to head-butt anyone with an ‘I Love London’ hoodie on however on this particular sunny weekday afternoon it was perfect.
We ordered a selection of their famous mini macaroons in Raspberry, Orange Blossom and Melon flavours and a small, very small Tarte Citron and all were delicious bar the Melon flavoured macaroon, do not order that one!
It’s a lovely place to visit and something everyone should sample but not too often unless you bank with Coutts in which case call me and we’ll go together 😉
A little bit of Parisian heaven.
VIVE LE MACAROON!!
