Ladurée is a luxury cakes and pastries brand based in Paris and they are one of the best known Macaron makers in the world.The history of Ladurée and the delicious Macarons goes all the way back to the year 1862 when a man called Louis Ernest Ladurée from France, created a bakery in Paris. Ernest Ladurée’s wife, had the idea of mixing styles: the Parisian café and pastry shop gave birth to one of the first tea salons in town which became extremely popular.
Much later on, in 1993, David Holder and his father Francis Holder, founder of the Holder Group, decided to buy this Parisian institution. In September 1997, a new prestigious Ladurée address both a restaurant and tea room opened on the Champs-Elysées. The mission of the President David Holder is thus to bring back the great classics, which have contributed to the reputation of this ‘salon de thé’, as well as create an environment for gastronomic creativity in Paris.
Also, it is interesting to know that Laduréee sells around 15’000 Macarons per day which is not at all a surprise since these pastries are the most delicious creation ever made.
