Pierre Hermé Pastries
Pastry-lovers are in for something sweet this March, with the
release of Pierre Hermé’s first English-language book in 10 years!
Pierre Hermé Pastries that features 50 iconic French desserts and
mouthwatering photographs.
Master pastry chef Pierre Hermé shares his tried-and-tested
recipes for the great classics of French pastry and other definitive
desserts from around the world – and then he reveals how to
reinvent them. Rose-scented almond paste and a compote of
raspberries and lychees fill Hermé’s croissants; his Saint Honoré cake
combines green tea, chestnuts, and passion fruit; and caramelized
mango adorns his foie gras crème brûlée. The luscious photographs
and 100 recipes featured in Pierre Hermé Pastries flaunt Hermé’s
mastery of technique and the talent for combining textures and
flavors that have earned him the reputation as one of the world’s
most skilled and inventive pastry chefs.
Pierre Hermé is a master pastry chef with his own line of shops
in Paris and Tokyo. He has published numerous books, including
Desserts by Pierre Hermé and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Hermé.
