[PARIS] Pierre Herme: The finest macarons


Dear Food Diary:

Since March 20th is Macaron Day in Paris (and now in NY) I thought I’d dedicate my post to the one who started this sweet day: Pierre Herme.

A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without indulging in Pierre Herme macarons. Luxurious, artisanal production of the finest macarons in the world. This is a real treat (yes, better than Laduree). At over 2 Euros for a precious little sandwich, the price is completely worth it. The store doesn’t allow photos and the staff can get snooty, but I managed to snap a blurry one on my way out.
