Merci to my friend Greg, who brought these magical macarons, these magical Ladurée macarons, all the way back from his European holiday. He didn’t know the NYC store opened just the day before – what a coincidence! But the more the merrier.
Actually, I’m fairly positive macarons taste far better when someone was thoughtful enough to hand-carry them all the way back to the city. Which by the way is pouring rain today, all grey and not a wink of sun. Macarons and hot tea? Miam, miam!
He had the macarons packed in a beautiful box, mesmerizing in pale yellow and blues, the interior lined in gold. For some reason it feels even sturdier than the most study box offered at the Madison Avenue location. Hmmm. Sadly it turns out they don’t carry this specific box in the NYC…it’s a new Europe-only exclusive. For now at least ;)
Don’t forget a matching ribbon – the final touch!
The macarons got a little smashed in transit, alas all the more tastier, two-toned macarons! That’s a pistachio-vanilla combination you see, think I had a coconut-lemon one in there as well. I shall wipe the box interior clean of the caramel which oozed out a tad. And fill it with shiny trinkets and many sparkling things.
Le Macaron Box does double duty!
