The Macaron King: Pierre Hermé

The great macaron debate may forever wage on but from the first time I tucked into a small box of Pierre Hermé's dimunitive cookies, perfectly crisp on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside, I knew I'd remain loyal to his interpretation. Perhaps best known for his unique flavors - foie gras and chocolate, lemon and fennel, vanilla and basil among many others - it's his Ispahan croissant - with rose almond paste and crushed raspberry flakes - that really keeps me going back.

Thanks so much for sharing! I loved trying out this place while in Paris. There's so many combinations-I loved the rose&jasmine flavor. I also made sure to take an almond croissant back to the hotel with me to have the next morning(so good!).
