Way back in the summer, I had started an obsessive search for macarons but silly me never remembered to state for the record that Pierre Hermé is my absolute favorite place for them.

Traditionalists will always prefer Ladurée but Pierre Hermé ‘s seasonal flavors keep me coming back.  In the photo above, we had, clockwise from top: passion fruit and chocolate, apricot, olive oil with vanilla, and jasmine tea.

In the past he’s made macarons flavored with truffles, matcha, foie gras and yuzu. I’m not always going to go for the most adventurous flavors (like ketchup, blech) but it keeps me curious and it’s always good to know there’s a mad scientist working the kitchen.
