I saw the mention in the Times today and trotted up to Madison & 71st in these 5" heels. I reported on Twitter that they were 4", but then came back and measured, yikes!
We make macaroons here in the kitchen at the catering company I work for too. We start with almond flour.
And the pastry chef won't let me give away the recipe, but eventually you get a batter.
That is whipped up until it's light and fluffy.
And piped out and baked.
We pipe a lot of them!
Seriously, a lot...
There was a line of course at Ladurée, but I stuck it out.
And after some time I was in!
The shop is gorgeous: the soft colors, flowers, candles...
pretty boxes and ribbons...
and of course, the macaroons!
Go visit soon, it's a very pretty, tasty trip:
