Pierre Hermé (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★★☆

Every year around Christmas time, I get a very strong urge to get myself reacquainted with
the exquisite flavors of Pierre Hermé's macarons. Let's see what they've got for us this Christmas.

As usual, I picked a number of familiar flavors, starting with their Foie gras & Chocolate, White Truffle & Roasted Piedmont Hazelnut and Salted Butter Caramel to go with some of their newest flavors including Peach, Abricot & Saffron, Jasmine Flower & Jasmine Tea, and Olive oil & Lemon. 

Liquorice & Violet is one of those new flavors just launched in December. I thought it was just so so. Somehow I found the flavor of liquorice a little bit weird for a macaron.

I still think that Foie gras & Chocolate (red), White Truffle & Roasted Piedmont Hazelnut (White) and Salted Butter Caramel are three of the best flavors out there. As for the new ones, I really like Jasmine Flower & Jasmine Tea a lot. My recommendation is to stay away from the fruity flavors such as Peach, Abricot & Saffron.

This is still the place to find the best macarons in the world!
