The Parisian tearooms' history is intimately tied to the history of the LadurÃ©e family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest LadurÃ©e, a miller from the southwest of France, founded a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. In 1871, while Baron Haussmann was giving Paris a “new face,” a fire in the bakery opened the opportunity to transform it into a pastry shop. The decoration of the pastry shop was entrusted to Jules Cheret, a famous turn–of–the–century painter and poster artist. He was inspired by the pictorial techniques used for the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel and the Opera Garnier.
Nowadays LadurÃ©e is an internationally renowned brand, always bringing savoir–faire to its locations around the world, an expert in the French Art de Vivre celebrating its Parisian heritage and gourmand expertise. LadurÃ©e is known for their iconic macaron, whimsical tea salons, and as the founder of the first tea salon ever created in Paris. A unique and precious Maison, LadurÃ©e continues its rich legacy one macaron at a time. “Macarons are the super models of the food industry,” says Co–President of LadurÃ©e US, Elisabeth Holder.
