Created in 1997 by Pierre Hermé and Charles Znaty, the company has been expanding strongly since 2010 on the international scene with several boutiques now located in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

 

Famous in France, Japan and the United States, the man that Vogue called "the Picasso of Pastry" revolutionized pastry-making with regard to taste and modernity.

 

With "pleasure as his only guide", Pierre Hermé has invented a totally original world of tastes, sensations and pleasures. With his original approach to the profession of a pastry chef, he revolutionizes even the most firmly entrenched traditions. For example, he prefers discreet pastry decors and "uses sugar like salt, in other words, as a seasoning to heighten other shades of flavour.

 

Refusing to sit on his laurels, he is always revising his own work, exploring new taste territories and revisiting his own recipes.

 

As a result, praise has often been lavished on Pierre Hermé, who has been called "pastry provocateur" (Food & Wine), "an avant-garde pastry chef and a magician with tastes" (Paris-Match), "The Kitchen Emperor" (New York Times) and "The King of Modern Pâtisserie" (The Guardian), along with honours and decorations, as well as – most importantly – the admiring gratitude of connoisseurs of gourmet sweets.

It is recommended to visit the Saint Germain head office to taste various dessert menus such as Pierre Herme  Isfahan. The Pierre Herme store, decorated with colourful stars for Christmas, was still crowded with people who wanted to buy macaroons.

 

Pierre Herme Macarons are captivating due to their deep colour and rich filling.
