|If you look carefully... there's a tiny crumb in this pic :P|
Look familiar? There's been a bunch of blogger raids going on for this chocolate shop in Bangsar Shopping Centre. I'm not in the bandwagon but I did join their Q&A session during the Merdeka weekend :D
|And surprisingly I won!!!! <3|
This will be a thank you post to Pierre Ledent and giving the box of chocolate 15 minutes of fame :D. Went to collect prize last week at Bangsar Shopping Centre.
Pierre Ledent is located at Jason's Food Hall together with a whole lot more yummies in the middle of Bangsar Shopping Centre (oh noes, my commoner's brain is kicking in! 8D). Honestly I can't stop thinking of Ezel and his gourmet tongue when I stepped into the area.... can picture ChibiEzel running around squealing +_+;;

See the counter there? It's a custom-made sliding counter that stores chocolates and macarons at ready-to-eat temperatures :D
|Macarons stored in jewelry cases :D|
|Packaging for less than 4 pcs :D|
Bought myself a couple of macarons too and boy I think these are the most expensive macarons in KL! RM10.90 per piece. Thank you Indra for introducing me to the flavors :D I got myself Violet, Balsamic Vinegar and Strawberry Vanilla. Got you quirking your eyebrow at the mention of Balsamic Vinegar? More about that later in the post XD
|My prize from Pierre Ledent :D 5 + 5 chocolates encased in a jewelry box <3|
|Isa, Diane, Gigi, Amadou and Ecrin|
Isa - Caramel Pistachios
Diane - Praline Nuts
Gigi - Praline Nuts
Amadou - Praline Almond-Nuts
Ecrin - Ganache Bitter-Raspberry
|Pamela and Calva, the rest are the same as the first tier|
Pamela - Ganache Cassis-Pear
Calva - Ganache Calvados-Cinnamon
I was horrified at first knowing that most of them have nuts. I'm not allergic but I'm just not a fan of chocolates with nuts as most of the chocolates have a big chunky nut right in the middle. To my surprise, the nuts are chopped to mighty fine pieces that they blended well together with the chocolate *O*b
|Close up on the pattern for Pamela~|
There's jewelry boxes for the pralines depending on the quantity. Price starts from 3 for RM38 :D Next comes the macarons~
|Sorry ;_; my mum's a Melamine fan.... so we only have these plates D:|
The Balsamic Vinegar cracked cuz it fell on the plate as I tried to get it out of the packet *sniffs* Thank god I was talking to Indra on the phone or else he would've seen my face of pure disgust when he recommended the Balsamic Vinegar flavor XD;; Later on he explained that the vinegar used has been preserved for 25 years so as time passes the vinegar caramelizes so there's no sour flavor.
|Violet also nickname Perfume|
Was attracted to the beautiful gradient on this macaron *_* This macaron is a combination of wildflowers and blackberries and it is said to taste like perfume in your mouth. I was already picturing the idea of my Dior perfume in my mouth lololol.
Lastly is the Strawberry Vanilla macaron. I took this as I was very sensitive to the taste of strawberries, especially the artificial flavoring kinds. This macaron turned out to be my favorite and I love the sparkles on the macaron! *gets whacked*
So that's my haul from Pierre Ledent. So sorry for the horrible looking pictures T_T/ Do check out their Facebook~
