We tried colourful macrons today...May happen that a baker team did not have his/her best day (I truly hope). Macrons has a hard crust, under-baked and tasted exactly the same despite its different colours. Your chef needs simply to get a delivery from Laduree in Moscow in order to see the difference.
It’s a great place otherwise filled with people who do not seem to care and it’s great. Staff is helpful and efficient. However, if you claim to have a class and standard than you need to follow a recipe, or?
