Description

Founded in 1862 in the rue Royale by Louis Ernest Laduree, the company Laduree quickly became famous for Laduree's tea rooms; the only place Parisian ladies could enjoy a cup of tea and pastries in public. Over time, the pastries gained fame themselves, especially the pastel macaroons crisp on the outside, yet with a soft chewy centre. Further gourmet delights followed created by renowned pastry chefs, such as Philippe Andrieu and Michel Lerou. Thanks to David Holder and his father, who acquired Laduree in 1993, these delicious pastries can now be found outside of Paris. And, even better, with the help of this book, you can enjoy the elegance, luxury and subtlety this great French establishment offers. Hailed as the Louis Vuitton of pastries, Laduree is now at your fingertips. Fifteen interviews with people who love the Laduree delicacies, memories and stories behind the creations of new desserts and the beautiful full-colour illustrations will immerse you in this epicurean universe without ever having you worry about your wasteline.
