In the middle of the twentieth century, Pierre Desfontaines, cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, created the first Ladurée macaron by
having the genius to stick two macaron cookies together and fill them with a flavorful ganache. Ever since then, the preparation
has stayed the same. Each season Ladurée celebrates this little round cake that's crispy outside and soft inside, a perfect
balance of aromas and textures, by creating new flavors. Each year the palette of flavors and colors grows, from the classic
chocolate or raspberry to festive macarons, exotic flavours for certain destinations, fashion designers, perfumes etc.
This book presents, for the first time, each of the eighty Ladurée macarons, their aromas, inspirations, trend books and of course
all of the recipes to make them at home.At the end of the book there is a practical, step-by-step section to show exactly how
Ladurée's chefs make the cookies and the ganache fillings so you can be sure to succeed in making them too.
