Ladurée

Some blessed souls are visiting from Paris and brought me this beautiful box, of which some of you might be able to guess the contents:

La Duree 1

This might be the first time I’ve experienced the sexy black tissue paper–I don’t remember it from the last time.  Combined with the champagne silk ribbon it’s positively lethal.

I swear this picture was in focus when I took it, but it doesn’t look it now–I must have been too excited!  Look at the colors!  (Crumbled, but beautiful like Polidori’s pictures of the walls and columns of Havana’s great halls

The bright pink raspberry ones fruits rouge (red fruits) are my favorite–they embody Paris.

We Just Missed (International?) Macaron Day!

I found out through a phenomenal blog called My Kugelhopf.  Kerrin Rousset is everything I wish I were: Europe-based, fully bilingual, ace photographer, and constant traveler.  Things I like about her blog: the text : photo ratio is perfect.  Her writing is descriptive, clear, and accessible (font isn’t too small, hate that when I find good blogs with extra small font!) and the photographs are vivid and well-styled, yet never lose a sense of realism.  Live vicariously.  It’s gorgeous.

Three “M’s” of My Kugelhopf:
