Boxes of Macarons have arrived from Pierre Hermé and Ladurée in Paris, France.

Chris just flew back from Paris after her snow boarding week in Les' Arc. This time no broken ribs but seems like the snow wasn't too fantastic. Guess what she has for us? As I drove to pick her up for dinner with HY, I tried to conceal my excitement. She brought us the paper bag of Pierre Herme and Laduree and as she hopped on the car, she told me, 'Sorry I only bought HY a bag, I've got no presents for you.'  What do you call the two paper bags of macarons and the flat packs of Jamon Iberico Bellota and chorizos? That's really an understatement sis. ;-)

The box of Pierre Herme Truffe Blanche & Noisette Macarons. I was told by Chris that this macaron has to be separately packed because the fragrance of the white truffle was so strong that it'll messed up the taste of the other flavors.

As I opened the box, the fragrance of the white truffle was still evident, even after the flight from Paris.  I can't imagine the intensity of the the white truffle when it came out fresh.

A close up of a Pierre Herme Truffe Blanche & Noisette Macaron. Chris and I were all over this truffle infused macaron. As I sank a bite into this, first the immense fragrance of the white truffle hit me and then followed by the smooth sweetness of the noisette. The taste was unique to me but I thought it was fragrant and absolutely awesome. HY gave it a pass. Her palate probably associate the fragrance of truffles to a savory taste.

Our Box of Pierre Herme looking ready to be indulged. I'll have a few more after dinner. Does it look inviting?

Stay tuned for more of Pierre Hermé and Ladureé macarons ......

Pierre Hermé's truffle infused macaron is definitely unique but my favorites are still the Rose, Infiniment Caramel (salted caramel) & his 3-vanilla. The vanilla one especially, is extremely awesome. I don't think you have this flavor in your box. It's not available this season.

I've only had Pierre Hermé macarons before, not Ladureé. Lucky you.
