France might be famous for its croissant, its pain au chocolat or baguette…but many might also associate the city with the macaron. It is a pastry that comes in all kinds of colors where cream or jam is squeezed between two cookies. I personally love macarons which are known for extreme sweetness. You can basically find them everywhere in Paris but the most famous place to get high quality macarons (and other pastries of course) is LADUREE. It is a chain that has stores all over Paris, often recognizable by the line in front of the store. The stores are nice to pay a visit but like all famous names, this can be felt in the price of the cookies.
