The other weekend I went to Pierre Hermé with my friend to try some pastries we hadn’t tried yet. We picked up two macarons and three pastries. The one you see above is the tarte café. Every component of this tart is coffee flavored. I liked it, but my coffee loving friend thought the coffee they used wasn’t good enough. We made this one in school too, but the one we made was really sweet.

This week we made more tarts, puff pastry dough, went to Rungis and made more tarts. The first tarts of the week were Pierre Hermé’s vanilla tart and coffee tart. Half of the class made vanilla and the other half coffee. I did the vanilla. Both tarts consist of a sweet dough crust, vanilla/coffee ganache, biscuit à la cuillère soaked in vanilla/coffee syrup, vanilla/coffee cream and vanilla/coffee glaze.
Next up was making puff pastry! Regular and inverse puff pastry dough. We made it in advance (mise en place) and proceeded with a Linzer torte……Worst pastry I have eaten while in Paris.
Of course my parents did not only wanted to eat the viennoiseries from des Gâteau et du Pain while in Paris, so we got some stuff at Pierre Hermé as well.
From January 20 to 9 March there is this thing called Fetish infinement citron. During this period the Pierre Hermé shops have a large amount of lemon flavored pastries. We tried the cheesecake infiniment citron.
The 17th and 18th of December I went to Paris with my mom to arrange my stay in Paris. We went with the high speed train Thalys early in the morning. We visited Pierre Hermé’s shop at Rue Bonaparte and bought a kouign amann, croissant ispahan, bostock and a cannelé. We walked a little bit further and ate all the goodies at Place Saint-Sulpice.
