Iconic French bakery Ladurée is launching vegan macarons in its Paris locations from March 12th.


French bakery Ladurée is well known for its beautiful and classic patisseries and bakes, but the 158-year old bakery is getting set to launch vegan macarons for the first time in its Paris locations tomorrow.

Ladurée bakeries across Paris will be offering two tempting new flavours of vegan macarons created with the help of vegan chef Matthew Kenney.

Customers can choose from the rich Peruvian chocolate macaron made with 70% cacao or the sweet coconut caramel option.

In order to create a plant-based pastry that resembles the much-loved textures and flavours of a classic macaron, pastry chefs at the bakery have used an emulsified mix of coconut oil, sunflower oil, and soy milk to create the indulgent caramel filling.

Hazelnut milk, almond milk and millet replaces cream and butter to create a vegan-friendly ganache for the chocolate macaron.

The 158-year-old chain will also add more plant-based options to the menu at all of its 80 locations worldwide in the coming months, including vegan pastries and cakes and savoury dishes to offer customers more choice as demand for plant-based options continues to soar across the globe.

In 2019, Ladurée made history when it made the decision to convert its Beverly Hills location to become a completely vegan pastry shop created in collaboration with chef Matthew Kenney.
