Laduree. From their website "It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from France’s southwest, created a bakery at 16 rue Royale in Paris." They are known for their elaborate pastries particularly the macaroons (pronounced mac-a-ron) and not to be confused with the coconut treats many of us in the US know. A macaroon is a small meringue like sandwich cookies with smooth flavored filling in the middle. Laduree has a rainbow of selections like rose, caramel and sea salt, cocoa and orange blossom.
