“We are a 150-year-old brand and want to evolve and be a part of the change.” says Ladurée.
In the mid 19th century, the “Macaron” took on a Parisian flair as it is known today when an enterprising young baker, Pierre Desfontaines, an employee of the legendary Ladurée Maison in Paris, bakeshop and tea salon founded in 1862, thought of creating two Macarons with a sweet almond ganache cream filling sandwiched in between.
Just like fashion designers, Ladurée has imagined new collections and desserts such as the Rose Religieuse, the Rose- Raspberry Saint-Honoré, the Liquorice Millefeuille and the Blackcurrant-Violet Macaron.
This year for the 2021 Epiphany Galette des Rois or King’s Cake, Ladurée presents its Signature Gourmet Galette: crispy golden puff pastry, French-sourced almond and hazelnut cream filling with white chocolate shavings. Topped with a chocolate and caramelized hazelnut tuile.
