The famous French patisserie Ladurée can be found in London in Picadilly, Covent Garden and Cornhill (near Bank Station) with their original London tea salon in Harrods department store in Knightsbridge. All of their sleek boutique shops and cafes serve their iconic macarons as well as a selection of delightful cakes, pastries and tarts. You can either have them beautifully boxed and wrapped to take home or enjoy your sweets with a cup of tea relaxing in a plush sofa in the tearoom.
I was shopping with a friend last week in Knightsbridge and we decided to have a tea break in the Ladurée in Harrods. Luckily being a weekday we didn’t have to wait long for a table because on weekends expect to be queueing for a long time! I opted for a scrumptious violet cupcake and an oolong tea infused with violet to wash it all down
If you’re a budding pâtissier or there isn’t a Ladurée near you, Ladurée have a book of recipes for their macarons and other sweets (Ladurée: Sucré: The Recipes) as well as a recipe book for their savoury offerings (Laduree: Savory: The Recipes).
