Macaroo..oo..oons Macaroons! (to be sung to the tune of Gary Glitter’s ‘Rock and Roll’ great song.. shame about GG..)
So there we were in Paris in need of a coffee and sit down when where should we find ourselves outside but Ladurée’s – probably the Best Macaroon shop in the world ever!
Knowing that ‘Encounter’s with Remarkable Biscuits’ blog would stand us the extortionate price of the coffee in return for the scoop, we pushed past the queuing throng in the shop into their café. Normally I ask before taking photos but I knew they wouldn’t like it so like the intrepid Sock that I am, I sneaked a quick one in when returning from the upstairs cloakroom
The man with the arrow pointing at his head was not a happy bunny and I got a right old telling off! After I had explained I was the award winning 100% cashmere Sock he stopped frothing at the mouth and calmed down a bit.
I took a picture of a happier bunny in the window
and some boxes of their marvellous melt-in-the-mouth macaroons.
If they ban you from Ladurée you can always go up the road to Fauchon and buy some of theirs
