A Thing of Beauty
I was the lucky recipient of this incredible box of macarons a couple of weeks ago......you should have seen the ridiculously huge smile on my face when I opened the box!! These bad boys are from Bottega Louie (in downtown Los Angeles).....and I can't even begin to tell you how much trouble I'd be in if they were just a bit closer (downtown is about 45 minutes away from me, on a good day).
Not only were these possibly the tastiest macarons I've ever had (even tastier than 'lette macarons in Beverly Hills), but I've never seen them with such a crazily intense color palette.....it's like a rainbow in a box! And they came in a beautiful pink box tied up with a ribbon....I think they would make the cutest hostess gifts!
Two of my favorites....the light orange one in the middle.....hello, pumpkin!! And the brown one up in the corner that I assumed would be a plain chocolate one......chocolate with salted caramel.....delicious!!
Many many thanks to Rachel for introducing me to this awesome shop....you'd better believe that any time I'm anywhere near there I will be making a stop!
