Welcome to my macaron post featuring the loveliest photo Ive ever taken. This is a raspberry macaron from the fabulous patissier Pierre Hermé. He opened his first boutique in Tokyo, Japan in 1998 to great fame. His first Paris shop finally arrived in 2001. Called the "Picasso of pastry" and "The King of modern pastry", it is his belief that pastries should be free from flavor clutter and not rely on "sugar as the salt."

The macaron was not too sweet, as promised. Raspberries probably had more sugar than the cookie itself. It was almost too pretty to eat but I devoured everything right down to the sugar dew drop on the rose petal & smiled the whole time.
