Parisian pastries in NYC
Who knew that people that would line up for crisp, pastel-coloured discs sandwiched together with a smooth ganache filling? Paris’ Ladurée probably did and that’s most likely why they just opened their first North American pastry shop on Madison Avenue in NYC. Founded in 1862, Ladurée gave birth to one of the City of Lights’ very first “salons de thé.” Decades later, the macaroon was born out of just the right amount almonds, eggs and sugar; after assembled they’re put aside for two days to achieve the perfect balance between texture and flavour. They’ve obviously mastered the recipe for success: there are now 21 Ladurée shops worldwide, including one in Kuwait, one in Saudi Arabia and one in Japan. The one in NYC is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 7pm; Sundays from noon to 6pm. laduree.fr.
