Pastry of the Day
Isn’t this beautiful? One of Pierre Hermé’s Mother’s Day offerings. (The French Fête des Mères is usually a couple of weeks later than the American one–June 3 this year in France.)
Pierre Hermé‘s exquisite pastries were a frequent inspiration for me when I was imagining Philippe’s work in THE CHOCOLATE KISS (January 2013). In your real life travels to Paris, you should not miss tasting something his flavors.
Jasmine ganache…rose-infused mascarpone cream. Inspired, according to Hermé on his website, by the perfume Joy, by Jean Patou. A concept I find utterly fascinating (a dessert being inspired by a perfume).
