Ladurée Valentine's Day macarons 2012

Pink grapefruit for Valentine’s Day at Ladurée

The ambrosial flavour of pink grapefruit is the theme of Ladurée‘s Valentine’s Day treats this year — dainty macarons and a luscious chocolate-covered heart-shaped tart.

And what a wonderfully romantic flavour it is: tangy grapefruit paired with vanilla makes for a sweet and sensuous tastebud experience.

Ladurée, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2012, is offering a stylish gift box containing six deliciously fragrant pink grapefruit macarons.

The limited-edition anniversary box features a velvet ribbon and a heart-shaped seal.

Vincent Lemains, Ladurée’s head pastry chef, has also created a “surprise” dessert: Un Amour de dessert. Enclosed in a heart-shaped, pure Caribbean-origin chocolate heart is a scrumptious tart composed of an almond pâte sucrée, roasted grapefruit supreme and pink grapefruit carpaccio.
