Pierre Hermé

Bou­tiques world­wide Paris, France

Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

When we are cu­ri­ous and open to dis­cov­ery, we of­ten en­counter a prod­uct we didn’t know about and that can be a fan­tas­tic source of cre­ativ­ity

Cel­e­brated pas­try chef Pierre Hermé may be fa­mous for rein­vent­ing the mac­aron, but his fridge tells us that he is ac­com­plished in so much more than the art of mak­ing sweet treats. It’s filled with a var­ied and beau­ti­fully cu­rated se­lec­tion of food from some of France’s best ar­ti­sanal pro­duc­ers. You’ll find ex­cep­tional cheeses from Marie-anne Cantin, Bernard Antony and Qu­a­tre­homme, meat from Yves­marie Le Bour­don­nec and Hugo Des­noyer, bread from Poilâne, olive oil from Cedric Casanova and, of course, mac­arons from Pierre Hermé. Af­ter some press­ing, Hermé ad­mits to shop­ping at su­per­mar­kets for sta­ples such as milk and eggs, but says he has never bought a ready-made meal in his life.
