In a unique collaboration between luxury ice cream maker Häagen-Dazs and world-renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé, a new macaron ice cream range is hitting shelves now starting with UK & France. Pierre Hermé is celebrated for his exquisite macarons and together with the iconic ice cream of Häagen-Dazs, a new era of magical indulgence is here.

The result is the love story of ice cream and macaron with Parisian flair. Crunchy chewy mini macaron shells are added to the creamy ice cream, bringing the perfect balance of the dreamy taste of Häagen-Dazs with the Pierre Hermé macaron’s signature almond flavour.

Pierre Hermé is the descendant of four generations of bakers and pastry chefs from Alsace. His reputation for bringing flavour and modernity to pâtisserie stretches across France, Japan and the United States, earning him the nickname “Picasso of Pastry” by Vogue. Having stated that “pleasure is his only guide”, Pierre Hermé has invented a world of aromas, sensations and delight. His unique approach to the pastry chef profession has led him to revolutionize even the most set-in-stone traditions, making him into an iconic figure in French gastronomy. Founded in 1997, Pierre Hermé Paris, the luxury “Haute Pâtisserie” company that is the brainchild of Pierre Hermé, opened their first store in Tokyo in 1998, followed in 2001 by the Parisian patisserie at 72 rue Bonaparte. Named the World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy in 2016, the pastry chef and chocolatier uses his technical expertise, talent and creativity to bring pleasure to all food-lovers.

“I am very excited and proud of our new collaboration. For the past twenty years, I have constantly been creating and reinterpreting my macaron recipes, which is my favourite creative terrain. My macarons are my identity so to put them in an ice cream I needed to work with the very best. Häagen-Dazs is just as passionate as me when it comes to, quality, taste and crafting things in a new way so collaboration was established from the first bite”, said Pierre Hermé.

The range includes three different flavours of ice cream: Strawberry & Raspberry, Double Chocolate Ganache, and Yuzu & Lemon.

The Häagen-Dazs X Pierre Hermé 2023 collection will be available globally starting with select retailers in UK & France from February 2023 followed by a wider launch across Europe, Asia, Latin America and Middle East in spring-summer.
