Pierre Hermé

Join the hushed masses who queue worship at the altar of pastry demigod Pierre Hermé. Tarts, cakes, chocolates, ice cream and, of course, macarons.

Reviews of interest

L’Express (2015) “L’inventeur de la pâtisserie Haute Couture est sans doute le seul chef pâtissier de renommée planétaire. Ce maître du sucré a construit patiemment une offre pléthorique de gâteaux, macarons et gourmandises tous aussi beaux que bons.”

David Lebovitz (2013) “Filled the rest of the box with Praline-noisette (caramelized hazelnut), which was delicious, Infiniment caramel which had a cushion of salted butter caramel in the middle (sweet, but with a nice touch of burnt afternotes) and Lemon-speculoos (spice cookie) which I liked, but I was hankering for another one of those raisins-soaked-in-sherry numbers. Jardin dans les bois (Garden in the woods) was a sweet little sandwich, cushioned with cream imbibed with aged rum and a little hint of woody cedar afterward.”

Dorie Greenspan (2009) “Have anything — oh, if only you could have everything — at Pierre Hermé, hands-down the best and most exciting patissier in Paris and no, I’m not impartial. If you’ve never had the Ispahan macaron — rose, raspberry and litchi — you must.”

David Lebovitz (2008) “I like Pierre Hermé very much. He’s a genius, and his stuff is gorgeous and the fellow deserves all the accolades that are bestowed upon him. He seems like a nice guy and his shops in Paris are swanky as all get-out.”
