Notre Septembre Inoubliable – Les macarons de chez Pierre Hermé !

 Allons-y ! On y va ! C’est parti ! Suivez-moi en France où je vais vous parler d’un mois de septembre inoubliable ! 

Let’s go! Follow me to France where I will tell you about a September to remember!

(To read last year’s post, “H is for Pierre Hermé” Click HERE )

*“H'” is quite a difficult letter to do in French; in fact one doesn’t even pronounce this letter in French!  Please allow me a little latitude here and let’s say that “H” is for “Hermé, Pierre.” 😉

Est-ce que nous y sommes allés? (Did we go there?)

Oui! Quand nous étions à Paris, nous avons acheté…et dégusté des fameux macarons de chez Pierre Hermé. 

hmmm...qu'est-ce qu'il manque ?

hmmm…qu’est-ce qu’il manque ?

Yes! When we were in Paris, we bought…and tasted some of the famous macarons of Pierre Hermé.

Comment cela s’est-il passé ? (So how was it?)

Ils étaient exquis ! La boutique était belle, et nous avons eu de la chance d’être à un moment de la journée où il n’y avait pas de monde ! Normalement, on ne peut pas prendre des photos à l’intérieur de la boutique,  mais ce jour-là, la vendeuse gracieusement nous a permis de prendre une seule photo. Nous avons acheté une douzaine de macarons. Pourquoi pas ? Nous étions en France ! En tout cas, ils sont assez petits, mais ne vous inquiétez pas, nous n’avons pas tout mangé d’un seul coup.

They were delicious! The store was beautiful and we were lucky to be there with no crowds! Normally, you can not take pictures inside the store, but that day, the clerk graciously allowed us to take a single picture. We bought a dozen macarons. Why not? We were in France after all! In any case, they are quite small.  Don’t worry, we didn’t eat them all at one time!

Si c’était à refaire, qu’est-ce que je ferais de différent? (If I could do it again, would I do anything differently?)

Non, rien de différent. J’ai eu l’occasion de les goûter, et je l’ai fait. Et j’aimerais bien le refaire 🙂

Of course not. I had the chance to try these, and I did. And I would like to do it again! 🙂

Les petites astuces de votre blogueuse (Tips and tricks from your “Forty, C’est Fantastique” hostess) 🙂

Je crois que c’est une bonne idée d’acheter au moins trois ou quatre saveurs. Puis, on peut y aller une deuxième fois pour en essayer d’autres 😉  Dans les boutiques comme ça, il faut demander la permission au vendeur pour prendre des photos. C’est poli, et c’est bon pour l’image des touristes. De plus, on peut avoir une conversation très intéressante; on ne sait jamais sur quel renseignement inattendu et utile on pourra tomber ! 

I think it’s a good idea to buy at least three or four flavors. Then, you can go back a second time to try some others 😉 In stores like this, it’s best to ask permission from the seller before taking pictures. It’s polite, and it’s good for our image as tourists.  Besides, you might just have an interesting conversation, and you never know when you’ll stumble across a good piece of advice!

Et vous, chers lecteurs? Avez-vous goûter ces petits gâteaux?  Qu’en pensez-vous ? Avez-vous une saveur préférée ? 

And you, dear readers? Have you tried these little delights? What do you think of them? Do you have a favorite flavor?

    Mmmmm, macaroons. We got ours at Fauchon near the Madeliene. I like pistachio, lemon, and raspberry best. The awesome thing about macaroons is that they are gluten free so they are one of few sweets I can still eat. Yay!

      Oh, that’s true! They are made from almond flour! Très cool 🙂 (I tried to make some at home once…very limited success for a lot of work!) I just wish we had un patissier here!

    Interesting that you should post about this. My youngest daughter who works as a pastry chef got into baking up macarons last year. I was befuddled that they weren’t made of coconut until I understood that it was something different. I’ll bet the ones my daughter was making would give these a run for the money. She started up a little business where she baked them out of her house but was getting so many orders that she couldn’t keep up.

    I tasted several flavors but now I can’t say which was best. I recall one that she made that was pumpkin that didn’t sound so good to me but was actually delicious. They are an interesting little pastry.

    Bien sûr pour un français, manger des macarons est une chose facile et fréquente car de nos jours ces patisseries sont devenues à la mode. Il existe dans chaque ville au moins une pâtisserie dans les macarons sont excellents.
    Mais ceux de Pierre Hermé sont parait-il extraordinaires, hélas encore un monument français, même s’il est culinaire, que je n’ai pas visité… :=(

    Hmm – macarons. Loving all the food inspired posts (I’m reading backwards and I started with the jambon beurre. Like that was my main course and now, desert!)
    What was your favourite macaron flavour?

      hmmmm…you’re right! I’m writing about a lot of food! I promise we did more than just eat while we were there! I think I liked best the one that they called “Ispahan” which was Rose, Letchi, et Framboise 🙂
