French Delights

Oh So Laduree!

Melt in your mouth french macaroons.  Not only am I intrigued by the taste, but the color, shape and texture. 

These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are the most famous creation of Ladurée.
The story of the Ladurée macaron starts with Pierre Desfontaines, second cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who at the beginning of the 20th century first thought of taking two macaron shells and joining them with a delicious ganache filling.
These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are made every morning in Ladurée’s “laboratory”. The pastry chefs measure out very precisely the required amounts of almonds, eggs and sugar, before adding one final ingredient, a pinch of unique “know-how”, essential to the making of such a delicacy. Once cooked and filled, the macarons are put to one side for 2 days before going on sale, the time it takes to achieve a perfect balance between texture and flavour.
With each new season, Ladurée pays tribute to its most famous creation by creating a new flavour.
The existing range of macarons is always the starting point when a new one is created, as the variety of colours is as important as the range of flavours and a vital part of their appeal. Laduree at: 864 Madison Ave NYC NY)

Designer Bath Retreats

Happy Wednesday!   Today my friends we take a look at chic baths!  Have you noticed that bathrooms  are becoming more like retreats and spa rooms, a place were we can relax, apply makeup and read.  Toilet bowls are discreet behind separate doors instead of the main element.  Most of us don't have the space for the grand style.  Never hurts to take a small bedroom and convert or design an area to resemble a quiet spa place. Lots of Light is my first priority.  Excuse me while I just run out and buy some white towels.  That's all today will allow!

Enjoy Your day!
