when I arrived at Laduree Harrod's.
Chosing a table in the front area near the windows
I ordered Jasmine tea immediately.
Sipping quietly, I perused the menu.
I decided to splurge
and get a decadent, "full meal deal"
I started with Scottish smoked salmon
served with salmon eggs whipped cream.
What can I say?
Would I order it again?
Yes, but after I had tried everything else on the menu.
This was followed by Salade Bonaparte.
More smoked salmon, more salmon eggs
and a some-what weird seaweed tartare-
a double dose of Omega-3s and
Easily finished as all because the servings are petite.
I'm definitely not ordering it again.
I wasn't bad, just not worth repeating.
Lucky for me I had room for two desserts:
The Carre Chocolat and
Saint Honore Rose-Framboise.
I will definitely order both of those winners again!
Something about the combination of the zabaglione cream
and the chocolate macaroons was so heavenly.
Their textures are complimentary
and the variations in chocolate flavors subtle but compelling.
They were served simutaneously
so I was able to alternate between the rose/raspberry delight
and the dense chocolate.
Unfortunately, there are no words to describe the experience.
All I can do is urge you to join me on my next trip to Laduree
and share the pleasure.
In the past, I was one of those women that prefered sex to food,
but today the sensual gratification was far beyond
any sexual experience known to humans.
