happy valentine's day!

For a Valentine's Day treat, I visited Pierre Hermé to try some of his famed macarons. The shop had plenty of Valentine's themed confectionary in heart-shapes and pink and red, and people were lined up out the door to pick up something special. I opted for the classic macarons, but some of the others I was with were a bit more adventurous. Afterwards, we walked across the street to Place St. Sulpice where we enjoyed our selections by the frozen-over fountain.

The ones that made it home were (in order of photos) the Infiniment Caramel (salted butter caramel), Infiniment Chocolat Porcelena (Pure Porcelena Chocolate from Venezuela), Pure "Sur del Lago" Chocolate, and Lime, Raspberry and Espelette Pepper. My absolute favourite though, was the "Mogador" - milk chocolate and passion fruit. Scrumptious! Now I have an excuse to try the macarons of Pierre Hermé's rival, Laduree - comparison is necessary. Hope your Valentine's Day will be just as delicious!
