Les “Incontournable de Paris”: Macarons by Pierre Hermé
Les “Incontournable de Paris”: Macarons by Pierre Hermé
December 1, 2011 by admin

If you travel to Paris, you have to visit a Pierre Hermé shop to taste their macarons. It is definitely not the famous French pastry shops for Macarons (Ladurée is far well known). It’s not even the biggest with a classical decor; indeed Pierre Hermé shop are pretty small yet very sleek and stylish. However, after tasting some of their many classics and signature macarons such as Chocolat & Foie Gras (chocolate & Foie Gras), Infiniment Rose (rose & rose petal), Olive & Vanille (olive oil & vanilla), Mogador (milk chocolate and passion fruit), Infiniment Caramel (salted butter caramel cream) macarons, you’ll fall in love (just like I did) and discover why they are well worth it.

While at their shop in 72 Rue Bonaparte in Paris (6ieme arrondissement), I sampled a good deal of these macarons, with my favorites probably being the Infiniment chocolate , infiniment Rose and the Mogador, apparently some of the best sellers at Pierre Hermé. I really liked the salted butter caramel cream one, as the sweet and salty notes complemented each other perfectly, but LOVED the Infiniment Chocolate for its rich flavor. And the Mogador tempting colors were just a delight! I was mesmerized by the bright colors, the rich ingredients and of course the elegant packaging “Les Incontournables de Paris“. I have to confess, I finished the entire box sitting on a bench in front of the shop. I challenge you to resist longer. LOL

He’s been called the Picasso of pastry-making and the Dior of desserts, but something along the lines of the macaron master might be more appropriate. Pastry chef Pierre Hermé is a total genius when it comes to macarons, and I truly believe he makes some of the best macarons available today (no offense to Ladurée).

Here is a little story about Pierre Hermé:

Towards the end of 1996, Pierre Hermé left Fauchon to start Pierre Hermé Paris® with Charles Znaty. Their first shop opened in Tokyo in 1998, followed by a Salon de Thé in July 2000. In 2001, Pierre Hermé returned to the gourmet scene in Paris. Immediately, the pastry shop at 72 rue Bonaparte in the Saint Germain des Prés area scored a big success. Every day, enthusiastic gourmets rediscovered pastries, macarons and chocolates, with connoisseurs from all over the world flocking to this temple of sweet delights. In 2004, a second shop featuring very innovative interior design opened at 185 rue de Vaugirard. In early 2005, the latest concepts from Pierre Hermé Paris® were launched in Tokyo: a “luxury convenience store” and a Chocolate Bar. Both are located in the Omotesando district, where the biggest fashion brands and companies operating in Japan have stores.

In 2011, Pierre Hermé Paris® has eight sales outlets in Tokyo, one in Osaka, nine in Paris, one in Strasbourg, two in London and an online boutique.
