pistachio, salted caramel, vanilla, cassis-violette, incroyables strawberry candy, chestnut, rose, violet

my friend claire went to paris to visit her in-laws again so i took the opportunity to ask her for a box of macarons from ladurée. after my first experience trying them 3 years ago (and it wasn’t good), i really wanted to try them again.

Macarons from Ladurée, Paris

got a pleasant surprise when i saw the flavors she bought! besides my favorite pistachio and rose, there were also three of them (strawberry candy, violet & hazelnut) from the ‘incroyables’ range made to commemorate their 150th anniversary. the strawberry candy macaron has got a marshmallow filling and a dusting of pink sugar on top. its also my favorite coz the strawberry flavor really packs a punch. i also like the cassis-violette which has a distinctive floral aroma. they were also not that sweet. i only have one complaint – the macarons were more crispy than chewy and some of them were even crumbly. not sure if they were supposed to be like that but i gobbled them down anyway!

i also took a picture with my phone which i uploaded onto instagram. the colors were so pretty! having owned the ladurée sucre book for awhile now, i think i wanna try attempting the macaron recipe next.
