As I am sure you can all tell by now but I have a true love/obsession with anything Laduree. I just find their macarons not only delicious, but to me they embody the elegance and sophistication of France. I am subscribed to all of their newsletters and I follow them on every social front that I can. A little while back I got the e-mail from their main store in France saying that they were presenting a collection of macarons in collaboration with the famed fashion designer Nina Ricci called La Tentation de Nina, I was doing my happy dance. The only problem was that it didn’t mention anything about getting them in the U.S. or when (cue the tears).
However if you saw my weekend post from last week then you may have seen that the Laduree in Miami had their windows beautifully decorated to showcase this collaboration! Though they didn’t have them yet I knew that it was just a mater of time and sure enough this past Friday was the day!!!! So like the amazing guy he is my main squeeze went and picked up a box of these artful GOLD LEAF macarons! I will be honest I almost cried because I was just so honored to be able to try these and my gosh they were wonderful!! They are a “raspberry, lemon, Bulgarion rose absolute and almond” macaron with a beautiful fuchsia shell! I know that these were a once in lifetime kind of treat and I am glad I could bring a little bit of my happiness to all of you.
