A fabulous aunt in Paris sent these all the way to Hong Kong! I will confess to being a total macaron freak and hiding these away from my family for a little photo shoot.
Many foodies have suggested that I go elsewhere for better macarons, but Laduree has sentimental value for me. I remember when I received my first box from another aunt extremely fondly, and not just because I eat too much.
I did eventually (grudgingly) share these with the rest of the brood, and now the box is being put to good use housing my pearls.
OH GREAT. Posting this has given me a total macaron craving. BAH.
