"Picasso of Pastry" heads to London

There is a great piece in the London Times this week about famed French pastry chef Pierre Hermé. Rumor has it that Hermé will soon be opening up one of his world-famous pastry shops in London sometime this year. He currently owns four boutiques in Paris and eight in Tokyo.

Hermé is known for his macaron artistry, so it's safe to say that I now consider him my culinary idol. His latest macaron creation includes wasabi – spicy Japanese mustard – and grapefruit. Don't knock it 'til you try it!
