The Savory Recipes
by Michel Lerouet & Sophie Tramier (Hardcover—2012)
The story of Ladurée started in 1862 when Louis Ernest Ladurée opened a bakery in the heart of Paris at 16, rue Royale. In 1872, following a fire, the little bakery became a pastry shop, the décor provided by Jules Chéret, a famous painter and poster designer of the time. Jeanne Souchard, Ladurée's wife, then had the idea of combining the Parisian café with a pastry shop. She therefore created one of Paris's first tearooms.
In this book, Michel Lerouet, Head Executive Chef at Ladurée, reveals 100 of the most famous Ladurée recipes, adapted for the general public. From Duck Foie Gras with Rose Macaron to Vegetable Tagliatelles with Ladurée Tea and Cardamom, as well as the Taramasalata Éclair with Rose Petals, the Chef presents us with an entire artist's palette of appetizers, main courses, fish, meat, salads, omelettes... All stamped with the famous Ladurée quality and creativity.
