The Art of Chocolate

The discovery of the book "Praline Passe-Partout", his father's bible, allowed Pierre Hermé to discover the professional world of chocolatiers. He admits to having borrowed this book, never to return it, and devoured it. From this reading, he acquired the first keys to knowledge and the irresistible desire to confront this unique, sensitive, sensual material. A passion that will never leave him.

It is with Gaston Lenôtre and Michel Chaudun that he made his first steps. Learning, knowledge, experimentation, chocolate does not accept compromise. With patience and high standards, Pierre Hermé endeavors to tame the chocolate material.

In 1984, a decisive encounter with the Valrhona company opened the door to work on chocolates and their origins. As an infinite source of inspiration, the creations multiply, bars, chocolate candies and pastries, to put this unique ingredient in majesty.

To highlight the aromatic richness of chocolates, Pierre Hermé Paris also offers a collection of chocolate bonbons created from original recipes where textures and tastes magnify this exceptional material. Collections to discover throughout the seasons.


I see chocolate making as a gift of self. I saw this devotion in action during my childhood, in my family's bakery-pastry shop, where my vocation was forged. Pierre Hermé
