Look! Amy at Apartment Therapy just tipped us off to a tour of Pierre Hermé's apartment over at The Selby. Here are a few shots of his kitchen, and a link to a full tour of this modern pastry master's home.
A few thoughts:
• 1 We're so impressed by the sleek, modern minimalism of his kitchen. It's not surprising: Hermé's work is marked by precision and a spare yet whimsical modern flair.
• 2 The row of hooks over the sink (and what are those bowls??) is really lovely.
• 3 Modern stovetop - induction, perhaps? And is that the oven underneath? We really wonder whether he bakes at home or not.
• 4 A piece of wasabi, the signature flavor of his newest macaron.
• 5 And no visit would be complete without a look at his perfect little macaron cookies.
Have you ever tried a Pierre Hermé recipe or confection?
