Refined taste: Explore the new Pierre Hermé cafe at the House of Dior, Seoul
Plus an interview with the pastry chef extraordinaire
Step inside the chic, refined and modern café that fits seamlessly into the Christian de Portzamparc designed building in Seoul. Adjacent to the newly opened Christian Dior flagship boutique is the Pierre Hermé cafe, and the two entities have more in common than you might think:
"I saw that Christian Dior was a gourmand, I saw how he liked to share, that he liked good things and personally I share that point of view"
Celebrated Pâtissière, Hermé coined the expression 'haute-pâtissèrie.' His process of creation is not unlike that of the legendary designer, and his successors. Just like any designer these dessert creations are sketched and planned, before they are created and presented, they are every bit the masterful designs as the house of Dior would warrant.
With a menu that boasts bold flavour combinations in complex creations such as, rose lychee and raspberry, and some surprises also promised, we predict this exquisite little eatery will be in high demand in Seoul. Watch an interview with the dessert master in the video below...
