Paris Photo of the Day: Pierre Herme

Every pastry-lover making their way to Paris stops at one of the two (or both in my case) pâttisseries:
Ladurée or Pierre Hermé.

I published the Ladurée-edition of Paris Photo of the Day a few months back.
Now it's time to take a look at the man who made Ladurée so big in the first place...

I'm talking of course about Pierre Hermé. A man who Vogue named "the picasso of pastry".

Pierre Hermé's Isaphan

This is the inside of his iconic pastry the Isaphan.
One of the dreamiest pastries...

Pierre Hermé's Isaphan

He has many boutiques all over the world now, but his official pâttisserie lies on Rue Bonaparte.

I have tried various things from Pierre now, among others:

A mini Kouglof.

A lemon tart, which I have also made myself with his recipe!

And various macarons:

Hahaha, she IS! An Asian tourist who was taking pictures with her standing in front of the patisserie.
