Little bites of heaven
Luckily, my friend Fred had the brilliant idea to go to the Ladurée shop in Geneva. For those of you who don't know what Ladurée is, you are seriously missing out! They are little light, fluffy, colorful, delicious and decadent pastries that cost an arm and a leg! Think of the movie Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola, you often see Kirsten Dunst indulging in these little jewels that were fashioned into mini towers and pasted onto cakes (apparently the whole color scheme for the movie was inspired by macaroons).
Out of the six flavors that I sampled (don't get me wrong, they were all delicious), my favorite were the salted caramel, the lemon and the chestnut. I cannot wait to finish trying every single "essence" as they call them... however I'll have to pace myself, they cost around 3$ a pop!
