I am officially launching a new blog here on my site called From A to Y! It will cover everything from fashion to food to music and more! I’m going to go ahead and kick off the first edition of From A to Y below!
The last time I was in Paris was with my best friend of forever. It’s scary how long we have known each other. We have covered a lot of ground on our many travels around the globe but maintain that Paris, is in our eyes, our hands down favorite city to visit.
Meandering through the city of lights we happened upon the very famous Laduree patisserie. Known for their beyond heavenly Macaron we decided to pause our trek for a taste of what everyone was raving about. Let me tell you…they weren’t kidding. The texture was perfect, flavors flawless and girlish colors divine; which added a bit of the sublime to the overall ambitious day on our feet.
As many know, I have a pretty significant relationship with my sweets. Though many desserts have their own acceptably delicious qualities none can prevail over dark chocolate. Let’s be honest. It’s really the only logical choice from a platter of treats. I truly believe those who say they aren’t thrilled by the delights of it are being ironically subversive. As a side note, in writing, you can sometimes lose slight meaning that intonation in speech brings. So, for all those reading please re-read the word dark chocolate but now as I see it… carrying a scepter and with a five part harmony with sufficient re-verb that one would hear from your average cathedral. With (and again) dark chocolate being close to my heart I make an addendum to my list of favorites by adding Laduree’s macaron to the very top.
Needless to say, when I heard that a New York location recently opened on the Upper East Side I hurried to make time for a stop. With the memory of our close to perfect experience in Paris I was hopeful that the New York shop would at least come close to that ultimate one some three and a half thousand miles away.
Be sure to check back to see how my experience at Laduree NYC measured up to their Parisian counterpart!
