Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four

My recent post of the lady tying her shoe made me think of Paris. The city of lights, love, fashion, food, beauty and macaroons

Now of course we all know that the best macaroons are baked fresh daily at Ladurée Patisseries and served at their Salon de Thé

Macaroons for those who never had them are small round cakes made from ground almonds, sandwiched together with flavored ganache. Crispy outside, cream inside!!

Just thinking about them makes my mouth water

Fortunately we don’t have to cross the Channel to enjoy these delightfully mouthwatering sweets

Situated in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge quarter, an elegant branch of Ladurée is tucked away in the world’s most beautiful department store.. Harrods

Since you have been so kind to me
I will take you along with me for tea and macaroons

I personally fancy the cream & gold room !!

The red room is ....pompous!! Do you agree Luv?

Take a look at the menu and order what your heart desires
You are my guest today

Excellent choice the strawberry tarts are delicious as well

Decisions, decisions, decisions, which one to take home?
Lavender or Jasmine Mango or both?

The chicken & walnut sarnies (sandwiches) with basil sauce are simply divine!!
We should take a few home as well!!

Darling, let's have them deliver the food to my cottage so that we can go shopping

I enjoyed our afternoon and had a lovely time
Hope you did too!!


Malheureusement c'est la fin de notre tour
J'espère que vous aviez un beau après-midi
A bientôt chérie
Duchesse de Thé

Oh, that was fun! Actually I have been to tea there before, back in the 80s.

I would love to try the macaroons, I've always wondered what they are like.

Enjoyed this post!

Oh My! this post had me drooling!!! I want some macaroons ...

parTea lady said...

It seems like Paris has an abundance of wonderful tea rooms. Thank you for sharing all these lovely photos. I've never tried one of those pretty macaroons - they sound heavenly. What I call macaroons are mostly baked coconut drops.

I visited London once, many years ago, but never made it to Harrods. A friend brought me one of their catalogs that I enjoyed very much.

Torie Jayne said...

What a wonderful blog, I must go there soon you make it sound so magical! Great pics too!

Duchess of Tea said...

Nora daling you suprise me everyday!! I love your comment, thanks Luv!!

ParTea lady, I will one day give you a tour of Harrods

Sonia, it is so nice to hear from you, long time no comment , no post. How is your project?

Marilyn Miller said...

Oh, I will have a few of the macarons. Make mine pistaschio, raspberry, and passion fruit please.
The sarnies look good too. I think I had better have a couple of those to go.

I have been to Laduree in Paris and hope to go again in September.

I am so obsessed with macaroons at the moment! What a beautiful post, the sandwiches look particularly yummy as well.
Dust Jacket Attic- Are you in Sydney? If so, try Macaroons from Adriano Zumbo in Balmain (Darling St). A-MAZING!!!! As is everything else in the patisserie.

Is there anything that doesn't look or taste more delicious in Harrod's? What a lovely afternoon. The macaroons were delicious, as will be the sarnies waiting at the cottage. Thank you!

Lynn said...

Ohhhhhh I would love to go to Harrods, it looks lovely. I am British by birth, came to Canada at age 18 but still quite British and I love the tea rooms.
Have you been to Betty's Tea Rooms? I went twice while in Yorkshire last September :)

Duchess of Tea said...

Hello Lynn, welcome darling. Yes I have been to Betty's, one of my favorite tearooms. ♥
