There is a reason why I’m marry this man (aside from the fact that he is the coolest dude around). He knows exactly what I love! My fiancé bought me a box full of macarons because he knows how much I’m obsessed with these little French cookies. These colorful morsels are from Bodega Louie. They were absolutely heavenly. 🙂
I have to admit that I am still very green when it comes to macarons. I haven’t been to ‘Lette Macarons or any other popular destinations, but out of the small handful of places I’ve tried, these are my favorites so far (Updated August 2011):
- Sadaharu Aoki (Paris, France) — The absolute BEST in the world.
- Laduree (Paris, France)
- Gerard Mulot (Paris, France)
- ‘Lette (Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Los Angeles) — my favorite in LA.
- Renauld’s Patisserie and Bisto (Santa Barbara)
- Little Next Door (Mid-City West)
- Jin Patisserie (Venice)
- Euro Pane Bakery (Pasadena) Changed my mind after trying several more times.
- Bodega Louie (Downtown, LA)
I also really liked macarons from Boule. It’s unfortunate that it closed down. Which places are your favorites? Any recommendations?
Those macarons are seriously little pieces of heaven.
My current favorite is the salted caramel. My mouth waters at the very thought.
Hi Green Girl! My favorite is salted caramel too! I had a flavor called “salt” at Euro Pane Bakery in Pasadena the other day and loved it. There’s something so amazing about the sweet and savory combination! Viva macarons!
Those look delicious! When are you getting married?
Hi Trish! How are you? I know — those macarons look amazing, don’t they? It’s almost too pretty to eat (yes, I said almost … LOL). We’re getting married early next year, in January! YAY! I’m finally starting to plan the wedding … lots to do in the next six months!
Congrats! So exciting. Good luck with your plans!!
