pierre-herme-ql-3.jpgFrenchman Pierre Hermé is responsible for inspiring pastry chefs around the world with his creative spins on macarons and other desserts. But how does it all come to be? Well, Hermé explains that he doesn't cater to customers, saying, "We are not Procter & Gamble. ... We don't make products that the customer wants—we make an offer to the customer." He also apparently hasn't actually cooked in years, but sketches out ideas "down to the gram" for his chefs, saying, "I can taste ingredients in my head." [WSJ]
