Renowned pastry chef, chocolate-maker and macaron specialist Pierre Hermé has launched a new quatuor of flavor creations for Christmas 2010 inspired by winter fruits, spices and flowers. They are called Envie, a combination of violet and blackcurrant berries, Pomme Verte et Angélique de Montagne, a harmony of green apple and mountain angelica with bites of sour apples...
Fortunella rests on kumquat, star anise and crystallized kumquat; Agapé is composed of lemon and gingerbread.
Also tempting are the festive foie-gras macarons which mix sweet and savory notes. There are Chocolat et Foie Gras and Eglantine, Figue et Foie Gras.
Each collection can be sampled in mixed boxes of 16 which are priced at 38€.
Last but not least, since this is a fragrance and beauty blog, no doubt that some beautistas who are adepts of macarons will find the Le Make Up Artist gift box (35€) just so. It includes the following assortment of 8 flavors:
- Infiniment Caramel
- Crème Brulée
- Rose Coing
- Infiniment Chocolat
- Marron thé vert
Jus trying to offer a few more gift ideas for the Holidays!
