There is only one spot in London for authentic Parisian-style macarons and that’s Ladurée, the 150-year-old luxury French pastry brand. From rich pastries to artisan chocolates and of course, the renowned macarons, these guys really know what they’re doing when it comes to desserts. Both their Covent Garden and Harrods patisseries have some of the most luxurious cakes with the decor to match, bringing a little slice of Paris to London.
New to their extensive menu of sweet and savoury dishes is an array of healthier plant-based options. Together with Californian Chef Matthew Kenney, Ladurée has created a selection of indulgent yet wholesome recipes that cater to vegans, vegetarians and pescatarians. Matthew Kenney’s is one of the world’s first leading chefs at the forefront of plant-based cuisine. He is an
author of 12 cookbooks, a culinary educator and CEO of Matthew Kenney Cuisine, a multifaceted company specialising in plant-based living. As you can tell, this guy really knows his stuff when it comes to plant-based cooking, and the dishes do not disappoint!
To go alongside the launch of the new super macarons, which are made with healthier ingredients, Ladurée is introducing a plastic-free eco-friendly box made from cocoa pod paper without glue. So not only are they better for you but they are better for the planet.
We love that Ladurée, a brand with a deep heritage in rich pastries is getting on board with healthy eating. With veganism and vegetarianism on the rise, it’s nice to know that whatever your eating habits, you can still indulge at the renowned French patisserie!
