Undoubtedly one of Paris’ most famous pâtissiers – the macarons are the most celebrated offering but the whole selection and presentation is delicious. Constantly updating his flavours means there is real innovation. Some connoisseurs feel the Hervé macarons are a bit too sweet – he has responded with a inspired savoury-ish collection, (Balsamic vinegar, chocolate-foie gras). It’s definitely worth testing them out to form your own opinions – tantalising titilation for your tastebuds.
He has boutiques all around Paris, but below are two of his first and best known.
