Olympic-themed macarons by Fauchon and Pierre Hermé
Gourmet macaron makers Fauchon and Pierre Hermé are jumping on the Olympic spirit wagon with special edition packaging and new flavours for the London Games.
Fauchon, which will be a major presence in London at Club France in Old Billingsgate Market for the French Olympians, has launched a cassis-flavoured macaron with a white chocolate, Union Jack cap created by pastry chef Fabien Rouillard.
The limited-edition Fauchon macarons will be available at its Paris flagship boutique on Place de la Madeleine until the end of the Games.
Haute macaron designer Pierre Hermé has likewise released an Olympic box set of 12 macarons in flavours such as salted-butter caramel, milk chocolate and passion fruit, and jasmine flower and jasmine tea.
Earlier this year, luxury tea house and macaron boutique Ladurée also created a commemorative box fashioned after the Union Jack in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee.
