Vancouver was lucky enough in 2016 to be the first Canadian home of Ladurée, the Parisian sweet shop best known for their perfect macaron. Now we can enjoy another slice of France right here in Vancouver, thanks to the arrival of Ladurée’s line of beautiful pastries and cakes.
We’re talking about intricate treats with intricate French names, like Ispahan, Saint Honoré, Marie Antoinette, and Plaisir Sucré, as well as Ladurée’s beautiful croissants. There will be the Lemon Meringue Tart, Praline Millefeuille, Milk Chocolate Eclair, Fleur Noire, Pistachio Religieuse, Palmier, Brioche au sucre, and several kinds of croissant and pain au chocolat.
While Ladurée insists on making their treats in France, to serve Vancouver they have launched a brand new “pastry laboratory” locally, and it’s being run by Ladurée Pastry Chef Mickael de Monte, who has moved here from Paris.
The cakes and pastries that we will have in Vancouver will be exactly the same as in France, prepared according to the same recipes and techniques, and will be available at the two Vancouver Ladurée locations.
Ladurée is located at 1141 Robson Street and at 737 Dunsmuir Street (in Holt Renfrew) in Vancouver.
