A big thank you to those who participated in the last spree from Paris! Glad you guys enjoyed the macarons as much as I did.
For Round 3 spree, it will be from London and I’m taking orders for both Pierre Hermé and Ladurée as I’ve been receiving emails to bring back Ladurée’s macarons as well.
Ladurée is not my favourite but since macarons are personal, to each his own : )
As for Pierre Hermé, the elusive white truffle macaron was actually available while I was in Paris but unfortunately, the staff die-die refused to put them in the same box as the other macarons since the flavour is too intense. A matter of macaron principle, I suppose. Anyway, if you want to get your hands on the incredible truffle macarons, you have to get a box of 12. An easy feat to finish them all.. Or share the love! It’s Christmas season, haha.
Other fabulous favours I tried last month in Paris include:
Americano Pamplemousse (grapefruit, campari),
Caraquillo (chocolate, coffee, aniseed ganache),
Infiniment Chocolat Porcelana (pure origin Venezuela Porcelana dark chocolate),
Mahogany (salted butter caramel, coconut, mango compote),
Marron Glacé (chestnut, my favourite!), and
Tempo (lime, pepper, raspberry), a flavour created exclusively for Galeries Lafayette.
Assorted pralines from Pierre Hermé are also available! I had a request to bring back a box and it travelled beautifully. Let me know if you want one too!
1. $75 for a box of 12 Pierre Hermé macarons, assorted flavours depending on availability.
2. $75 for a box of 12 truffle macarons from Pierre Hermé.
3. $75 for a box of 12 Ladurée macarons, assorted flavours depending on availability.
What’s included: whatever is given upon purchase, i.e. paper bag, original box, catalogue and whatnot.
