“World’s best pastry chef” Pierre Hermé to open a boutique at La Mamounia hotel
The French chocolatier will also be creating a new dessert menu for the hotel’s four restaurants.
Lying in the heart of Marrakesh, La Mamounia has long held a reputation for being one of the grandest palaces in Africa. Guests at the five-star Moroccan hotel are treated to an exquisite stay with its polished quarters, lavish spa and four restaurants. Now, guests can expect an even more delightful experience when the world’s best pastry chef, Pierre Hermé, takes the reigns at the hotel’s pastry kitchen from November 1.
Hailed as the “Picasso of patisserie”, what better place is there for Hermé to open his first boutique in Africa than the region’s best hotel in 2015? Guests will finally get a taste of the chocolatier’s signature pastries and macarons, exclusively made for the luxury hotel.
That’s not all. As part of his new partnership with the hotel, Hermé will also create a new dessert menu for all four of its restaurants: Le Marocain, L’Italien, Le Français and Le Pavillion de la Piscine.
Pierre Hermé was crowned as The World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2016 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy. The famed French pastry chef, who began his career at the age of 14, has several boutiques in Paris and Tokyo.
