Pierre Herme

pierre-herme boutique.jpgAs any foodie worth their sea salt will know, Pierre Hermé is a big star in the patisserie firmament. Formerly top dog at Ladurée, he ran away from their constraining rules (apparently) to found his own company, and now has several boutiques dotted around Paris, the original being located on rue Bonaparte, in the 6eme arrondissement.

The result of his great escape is probably the best macarons known to man (not to mention his other creations!). They’re the kind of sweets that deserve a Homeric opening line: ‘Sing muse, of that delectable disc of deliciousness, the Pierre Hermé macaroon’. They certainly have epic names; ‘magnifique’ (strawberry and wasabi), a ‘mogador’ (passionfruit and chocolate), and ‘chuao’ (chocolate and cassis) are a few I’ve come across.

Flavours range from the traditional – chocolate, vanilla, caramel au beurre salé (caramel with salted butter), pistachio – to more daring flavours such as green tea and white truffle, among others. On a recent visit I tasted, in addition to my enduring favourite caramel au beurre salé, a rose and quince, a ‘fragola’ (raspberry and balsamic vinegar), and another whose name escapes me. All I know was that it contained crème de marrons (chestnut paste), and was covered in edible gold dust that left your fingers shimmering afterwards……ahhhh.

pierre herme macaroons.jpgEach macaron was like a little puff of heaven; crisp on the outside, soft and pillowy on the interior, they are the perfect sugary antidote to a biting cold Parisian winter’s day. They are also, I imagine, wonderful on a warm spring day, perhaps eaten in the nearby Jardins Luxembourg or as dessert after a decadent Seine-side picnic. They’re so good I once had to queue 40 minutes to get inside the shop. They’re so good they’ve even been mentioned on Gossip Girl. I rest my case!

    Hello to you all….P.H is the best patisserie in Paris! I think that if you want to see high level of patisserie you can see it there. I tasted the “Plenitude” which is an amazing chocolat dessert, it was the best i have ever tasted!!!

      Thanks for your comments. I felt the need to go to Pierre Herme myself to buy patisserie, not macarons, and found a long line forming outside on a Sunday afternoon. I bought four different patisseries — chocolate cake, tarte citron, tarte vanille and millefueuille — all of which were crazy good. The tarte citron and milllefeuille were the best I ever had, and the other two were superb as well (I had tastes of each, sharing with my wife and son). In short, there are a many great patisserie in Paris, but Pierre Herme is a clear standaout and, indeed, is one of the best if not the best in Paris (and thus the world).

    I just have to say this man know’s how to make a macaron – delicious! It should also be known that he has a little shop 4 rue Cambon (75001). A few years back when in Paris we walked out our hotel down Rue Saint-Honore – taking a short-cut to Pl. de la Concorde – and what do we see before our eyes? Rows of multi-coloured macaron’s in a shop front. What delight, and what a way to get the day going, and every other day after we knew where it was.
