Let them eat cake (and macarons) at Ladurée!
Thursday 14th July is Bastille Day and there will be plenty of celebrations this year are at French patisserie Ladurée. Ladurée opened their first patisserie in Paris in 1862. They rose to fame in 1930 with the creation of the double-decker macaron by the owner’s grandson, Pierre Desfontaines. Now in over 26 countries around the world, Ladurée sell over sixteen thousand macarons every day.
Australian-born illustrator Kerrie Hess has created a limited edition box series for Ladurée to celebrate Bastille Day named ‘From Paris With Love’. She has created three illustrations inspired by her experiences in Paris, macarons and her love for art. The boxes also come filled with macarons and can be purchased for $38 including 8 macarons and the keepsake box.
We have a double pass to giveaway for a high tea for one lucky reader and their friend at Ladurée’s Sydney Westfield Store. The competition winner will be able to choose which day they dine between Thursday 14th and Sunday 17th of July. The winner will enjoy an abundance of macarons and other high tea treats, as well as one of the take-home limited edition boxes illustrated by Hess with, you guessed it, more macarons!
The winner will receive a Parisian inspired Bastille Day High Tea at Ladurée for them and one of their friends. They will also receive a limited edition French illustrated box by Kerrie Hess to take home full of a selection of 8 macarons.
