Create your own bespoke macaron flavour and macarons with Pierre Hermé, the “Picasso of pastry". Pierre Hermé - a true architect of taste - has perfected the art of blending unique flavour combinations and his commitment to the French macaron has seen it evolve from a traditional treat to an unconventional delicacy. Meet the man himself on this ultimate Parisian experience for the baking and pastry connoisseur.
Heir to four generations of Alsatian bakery and pastry-making tradition, Pierre Hermé began his career at the age of 14 as an apprentice to Gaston Lenôtre. Famous all around the world, the man that Vogue called "the Picasso of Pastry" revolutionised pastry-making with regard to taste and modernity. With "pleasure as his only guide", Pierre Hermé invented his own unique world of tastes, sensations and pleasures, an original approach to the profession of pastry chef which led him to challenge even the most firmly entrenched traditions Preferring discreet pastry decors, using "sugar like salt; in other words, as a seasoning to heighten other shades of flavour" and refusing to sit on his laurels, he is always revising his own work, exploring new taste territories and revisiting his own recipes. As a result, praise has often been lavished on Pierre Hermé, who has been called "pastry provocateur" (Food & Wine), "an avant-garde pastry chef and a magician with tastes" (Paris-Match), "The Kitchen Emperor" (New York Times) and "The King of Modern Patisserie" (The Guardian), along with honours and decorations, as well as – most importantly – the admiring gratitude of connoisseurs of gourmet sweets. Pierre Hermé is a true master of his craft. In this exclusive opportunity, you will meet the macaron maestro at his own Maison Pierre Hermé, in Paris. Under his mentorship over three consultations, you will develop your own bespoke macaron flavour, and even retain lifelong copyright of your creation. Take the experience home with you, with 100 of your unique macarons delivered to your London address.
