Calton Hill and Ladurée Macaron

June 20, 2009 in Bon Cheesepetit / UK

Some pictures from Calton Hill, Edinburgh.


And bought Ladurée Macaron! Apparently freshly flown from France everyday. Super duper nice.

We shared the round meringue thingies, each person one bite pretending to be damn expert liddat trying to give a review and rating to each flavor.

It went like this.

“Hmm. Nice.”
“Oh, this one also nice.”
“Okay, this one maybe not so… hey wait, it’s nice too!”
“OMG this is soooo nice!”
nom nom nommm…”

Not a big fan of rose either and i couldn’t think of any reason why some flower pastry will taste any good but this is sooo surprisingly good. I like like like!!!

Also available in other flavors: Chocolate – Bitter Chocolate – Vanilla – Coffee – Rose – Pistachio – Raspberry – Blackcurrant Violet – Caramel with salted butter – Red Fruits – Orange Blossom – Liquorice – Lemon.

My favorite is Rose and Salted Caramel. 🙂

Must try if you are here. Can get it from Harrods or Brompton Road, Knightsbridge.
