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? • See the full tour: Pierre Hermé - At his home - Paris - March 11 2009 And for a look at another Paris pastry chef at home, go look at our tour of David Lebovitz's kitchen: • Kitchen Tour: At Home in Paris with David Lebovitz (All images: The Selby)
