The story of Ladurée started in 1862 when Louis Ernest Ladurée opened a bakery in the heart of Paris at 16 rue Royale. In 1872, following a fire, the little bakery became a pastry shop and the decoration was then done by Jules Chéret, a famous painter and poster designer of the time. Jeanne Souchard, Ernest Ladurée's wife, then had the idea of combining the Parisian café with a pastry shop, thereby creating one of Paris' first tearooms.
In 1993 Ladurée was bought by Francis and David Holder and became one of the best-known gourmet addresses in Paris, a veritable institution with its famous "macaroon" as its emblem. In 1997 Ladurée opened a tea-room/restaurant on the prestigious Champs-Elysées, followed by another in the Printemps department store and on the Left Bank as well as the beginning of their international adventure with branches in London, Geneva, Monaco and Tokyo.
A perfect companion to slip in your purse, the book shares Almanac Ladurée's tips and secrets, day by day. It includes over 100 quotes from renowned authors, as well as 30 simple, typical, sweet and savory Ladurée recipes. It also includes more than 200 tips for cooking, table decoration, interior design, beauty and lifestyle.
