Inspiration
Have you heard of Laduree? Founded in the mid 1800s, Laduree is an institution in Paris - a tea room patisserie extraordinaire. They have boutiques in the finest locations in Paris and in other centers in the world. They are most famous for their macaroons - which seem to be the dessert du jour! Here are some photographs of their exquisite locations . . .

We love Laduree! Everytime I go to Paris I always make sure we have lunch there followed by a plate of macaroons.

So funny, you posting about Laduree as I am doing a painting of macaroons at the moment inspired by my many visits there. You can see the painting in progress on my blog.

Lsudree is the company that was commissioned to do all the delightful goodies that rocked the Marie Antoinette movie (was that last year?) and sent sweet tooths worldwide into a frenzy. Heeeeeey, funny you should do that post now... I am having a Marie Antoinette tea for my sixth thirtieth birthday party this Sunday for the first day of spring.... and yes, the entire point of the thing is to eat as many sweet little delicacies as is humanly possible in a corset. You and your beau should come... put on some lace and come and eat sweets with us! Starts at 4pm up at the Gyro lookout! One of the recipes I am using is from Laudree. :)
