The Wizard of Sweet Delicacies

Following in the footsteps of four generations of bakers and pastry chefs in Alsace, Pierre Hermé is, undoubtedly, one of the most talented. At the age of 14, he was fortunate to start his career under the auspices of the world famous Gaston LeNôtre. Since then he has continued to delight the palettes of world famous gastronomes. Rightly nicknamed the ‘Picasso of Patisserie’ by Vogue magazine, he continues to impress with his famous macaroons, delicate chocolates and melt in the mouth pastries. In 1996 he left the world renowned Fauchon food emporium to head off to Japan to open his very first boutique under his own name. His well publicized return to France in 2001 heralded the success and uncontested reputation he enjoys today.

Open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 10:30 pm.
