For the summer 2021, Pierre Hermé unveils a collection of pastries likely to delight Japan and Japanese flavor fans. Available in stores starting from June 7, 2021!

A few weeks after uncovering his Gourmandises Raisonnées collection low in sugar and calories, pastry chef Pierre Hermé makes the most of sunny days to present his summer collection available in stores from June 7, 2021, and all summer long.

And for his new collection, Pierre Hermé was inspired by his love for Japan, imagining unexpected mixes, sometimes shapes as an iconic cake from French pastry in Japan, or a traditional pastry which flavors are an ode to the Japanese culture.

In Japan, pastries are created with seasons, and they are traditionally enjoyed with tea to soften the bitterness of matcha. For this collection, I tried to show the excellence, the aesthetics and the perfection of Japanese people through shapes, flavors and uncommon textures”, the chef states.

Matcha green tea, Kôchi yuzu, black sesame, azuki, and even rice As many new flavors used in Pierre Hermé’s pastries.
