Product Description

About the Author

Pierre Hermé, chef de file des pâtissiers français, a su apporter en quelques années une touche de goût et de modernité à sa profession. Célébré jusqu’au Japon et aux États-Unis, il est surnommé « Picasso of Pastry » par le magazine Vogue. Héritier de quatre générations de boulangers-pâtissiers alsaciens, Pierre Hermé a commencé sa carrière à l’âge de quatorze ans auprès de Gaston Lenôtre. Il est devenu très vite chef-pâtissier chez Fauchon, puis a apporté son savoir-faire à Ladurée, avant d’ouvrir ses propres enseignes à Tokyo et à Paris. Avec lui, les décors sont simplifiés, les techniques repensées, en s’affranchissant des références au passé et à l’enfance. Son 2000-feuilles ou son macaron Ispahan (rose, litchi, framboise) lui valent une renommée internationale de « couturier » de sa profession.Auteur à succès, il a déjà publié de nombreux ouvrages dont, aux Éditions de La Martinière, Rêves de pâtissier (2011) et Ispahan (2013). --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
I was so fortunate to be given this incredible book by my Daughter for Christmas 2008. She was also so kind and patient in the translation! (She is fluent in French and it took her four hours to translate the technique, the very beginning of the book.) Our quest to make these delicious cookies began after happening upon Laduree in Paris. First bite we were hooked. (Vanilla and Ispaham are our favorites.) The techniques are very detailed and will produce excellent results providing you use only the best ingredients and follow all of the instructions. Be warned! Mr. Herme recommends you let the egg whites rest for a week PRIOR to starting the recipe. I have never had to plan a week ahead to make anything, EXCEPT Macarons. Also, be sure to follow the recommendations when baking the cookies. They take about 2-4 hours to complete as long as you have no mistakes along the way, but well worth the time. I love this book! Thank you again Ellen!

If you love Macarons and do not enjoy baking, this book is for you as the photograghy alone is amazing.

If you love Macarons and enjoy baking, this book is for you.

This book is the next best thing to sitting in one of the Laduree Shops!

By Babs54 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Wow is an under statement. This book is totally amazing. I finally received the English version (from another book vendor) and it's well worth the wait. It starts off with a introduction and background of Pierre Herme. Then there's a section on his secrets to making macarons with pictures for each step, assembling, utensils and frequently asked questions. Pierre Herme divides his macaron flavors into "the classics", "fetish flavours", "Signature Macarons", "Made to Order Macarons", "Exceptions". He has created such flavor combinations as a Lemon & Avocado, Osetra caviar & walnut brandy, Black truffle macaron, Olive oil & vanilla macaron. Lots of different flavor combinations I never would have thought of.

This is one of the best macaron books I have and it was worth the price and long wait for delivery. I can't wait to try some of his combinations.

By Alexandra M. Lucas - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I haven't got this book yet, however, the chocolate macaron recipe in his Chocolate Desserts book looks fantastic (every other recipe I have tried in that book is great- consistently achievable and tasty). I have pre-ordered the English edition of this book through book and it is due to be published on September 19th 2011.
Looking forward to it!

Earlier this year I was offered the option of "notify me when available"; that option has
disappeared. Will the book be published in English? If so, when?

HASH(0xb39d5198) out of 5 stars How I managed to get this in USA... Feb. 7 2011
By SarahB - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Unfortunately, the only way to get this book at an even thinkable price was through And even then, the vendors wouldn't all ship to USA, so it was still a little prohibitive price wise for just a cook book... yet still had to have it, so I managed to track down someone IN FRANCE to have it shipped to. Pretty dramatic, yes, but I wasn't about to spend an insane amount of $$, but was nuts over getting it.
