Pastry of the Day

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).
