That's wonderful, Tina. I would love to be included in the giveaway. I must go now as I am in shock at Giulia the Gattina's behavior. She was just discovered with tissue paper shreds on her ear-tips. The damages: four boxes of (expensive) recycled tissue, opened, & shredded. She has been banished to her cat cottage. She has appealed to you & others (as supporters) to appeal her sentence. I told her Coco & Kali would never do such a thing. Back me up on this, even if it's not true.

ciao bella

ahhh! i love macarons, on my last trip to paris i wasn't able to make it into one of the Ladurée shops to get any and had to wait until i was at the airport...i ended up eating all (6) at once before i even boarded my flight!

your pictures are beautiful, makes me want to go back right away!

ps there was a comment above about not finding macarons in Toronto, there is a café called Nadege that they can go to on queen st w. hopefully they read this.

I have been enjoying your blog in my bloglines list. It's great to see and read all the nifty information and happenings that you have posted.

I have been stalking macarons for awhile now, wishing that there was a place in town that made them. I have begged our local bakery to make me some. The colors and the friendly look just appeal to me. I love cupcakes and these would be an upgrade to cupcakes. lol :) xoxox

Ah, those fabulous treats... and the elegant setting that is Laduree. Having experienced them before, I will defer my chance at receiving the macaroons in favor of someone who needs to savor them for the first time.

But to vicariously visit Laduree and see recipes of some of their other famous creations (surely the one for the macaroons must be a state secret), treat yourself to a little tour through Linda Dannenberg's book, "Paris Patisserie Boulangerie: Recipes from Thirteen Outstanding Parisian Bakeries" (Clarkson Potter, NY 1994). The fabulous photography puts you right in the setting and makes your mouth water, and the recipes are to dine for!!

Today is my lucky day! I just found a gold wedding band on the sidewalk in front of Laduree!
I will gladly give it to you for just one of those macarons.

I'd love to taste those macaroons I've read soo much about. . . your blog is absolutely beautiful. One word of heartfelt advice. . . let go of the angst over your old job. Don't let one institution, one person, one group of people define who you are or what you can be. I've been there. I know.

They are so beautiful! Thank you for your posts from Paris, they have completely inspired me to return, I went there in 08 with my 9 year old daughter and we walked Paris, it was the most magical trip ever for both of us, the Louvre at night, night time fair ground rides and picnics by the Seine. Your photos evoked such memories, so we are planning to go again this summer and are even looking into staying at your beautiful little apartment! So thank you sooo much again. xxxxxx

Ahh, pick me! I've never had a macaron... in fact, before reading lovely blogs such as this one, I had never even heard of them. Now, they seem rather emblematic of the type of blog I love most....
And besides, they seem so much more lovely and indulgent than boring ol' macaroons.
