I can blog about what I want right? Inspired by Catty and her recent mini-posts, I just couldn't resist. Last night, I experienced true revelation.
Pierre Herme is famous for his macarons and as of the 5th of February, has had a small outpost next to the cupcakes and breads in the Selfridges food hall.
I am not really sure what it is about them, but after my first bite, I was genuinely lost for words. The light crisp shell gives way to a smooth, delicate cream filling, infused with a variety of flavours. Having devoured both a pistachio and salted caramel, I think I may have found a new direction for my life, to sample one of each and every flavour. I'm probably going to have to take out a loan to achieve this (it cost me £11 for 7) but an endeavour I genuinely believe is worth pursuing.
Word on the street is that a Pierre Herme shop will be opening in Knightsbridge in Spring. I genuinely cannot wait.
