lette - macarons!

i can't get enough of macarons. something about this delectable parisian specialty - whether the crunch of biting into the domed sides, the melt-in-your-mouth ganache, or the kaleidoscope of flavors/colors never ceases to bring a smile to my face. sadly, heidi is also a fan, so it always halves my enjoyment. sometimes one has to take matters into their own hands - today is that day.

two of my faves in socal belong to jin patisserie in venice and lette (formerly paulette) in beverly hills, so i made a visit to the latter. it's a small but vibrant shop, with all of their daily flavors - i counted 14 - laid out in front of you. and notice the cute macaron notches on their bench outside.

i picked up a sixer of their sicilian pistachio, colombian coffee, lychee (seasonal), sweet wedding almond, violet cassis and earl grey tea to accompany me to the hollywood bowl tonight. that is, if they can make it these last few hours without somehow disappearing...
