Thanks for 150 Years of Awesome Macarons, Ladurée!

Max Falkowitz Post a comment

We have Ladurée to thank (so the legend goes) for inventing the modern macaron in the 1930s by sandwiching two almond meringue cookies with some chocolate ganache. An inspired vision or a happy accident? We're not sure, but either way we're grateful. More
