Today more than ever, we crave sweet nothings, words as comforting as a delicious pâtisserie. What is your favorite nickname for the one you love? In French, a common term of endearment is “mon chou” (my sweetheart.) The French expression “Chou” is perfect for Ladurée, the luxury pâtisserie famous for its macarons, but also for its Saint Honoré cakes, choux wedding cakes, and réligieuses. Offering all kinds of iconic delights made with choux pastry, it is fitting indeed for the Maison to celebrate the season of love with the launch of a “Mon chou” collection. Through the collection, Ladurée is making a great declaration of love with a lighthearted vibe that is oh so French and oh so sweet.
