Pierre Hermé's specialty

Pierre Hermé is the art of the macaroon. One in particular: the Ispahan, a unique combination of raspberry, lychee and rose. A sweet specialty that can be eaten from Paris to Tokyo via Dubai and has already earned this descendant of Alsatian bakers the title of "Dior of desserts".

The pleasure of the macaroon

Indulge yourself and others: dive into the heart of Pierre Hermé's world of tastes and sensations through a gourmet journey where macaroon boxes, cakes, ice creams and chocolate candy assortments are at the heart of your desires. Just enter in Pierre Hermé boutique at 18 Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie

The history of Pierre Hermé

The artisan student of Lenôtre and then Fauchon, already crowned with the entry of his statue in the Grévin Museum in Paris in October 2015 and his name in the Larousse dictionary, built his empire on a small cake formed by two cookie rounds filled with flavored cream.

A sweetness he didn't like at first. "I thought it was too sweet," he says. "What made me want to work on the macaroon was that there wasn't much then, just coffee, chocolate, vanilla. I told myself that there was really a field of creativity to explore," he tells AFP, in his bright office near the Parc Monceau.

In the 1980s, he started to create new mixtures, "to make the taste of the macaroon more playful". Their taste is all the more intense as the filling is generous, explains the pastry chef who also worked at Ladurée, a house also famous for this small cake.

In 2016, Pierre Hermé was also named "best pastry chef in the world".

Inspiration and Pierre Hermé

His sources of inspiration? "It can be a product I've tasted, a reading, an image," says Pierre Hermé, who always starts by drawing and writing the recipe, before submitting it to a team of pastry chefs in charge of testing.

Among his successful associations of flavors, the olive oil and vanilla macaroon, the Mogador (milk chocolate and passion fruit), the foie gras chocolate more or less intense.

This wine lover is also used to collaborating with other creators, whether it is the perfumer Jean-Michel Duriez, former "nose" of Rochas, or artists such as the Italian Giuseppe Penone whose work inspired him to create a Christmas log. Also, the French artist Nicolas Buffe who illustrated the boxes of his chocolates with his fairy universe, half manga, half baroque.

High-end pastry at Pierre Hermé boutique

Pierre Hermé is pleased to see the current craze for high-end pastry, to which he "doesn't think he's a complete stranger".

"There are more and more talented pastry chefs who are making a name for themselves, opening boutiques, doing exceptional things in hotels and restaurants. The profession is very much alive, lots of young people want to learn this trade, I think that's great."

"Twenty years ago, when you wanted to be a pastry chef, people would say, 'Oh, really?'" says the 50-year-old with the round figure. "Me, from the age of 9 I wanted to be a pastry chef. My mother tried to talk me out of it, but it didn't work!"
