His macarons continue to be among his chief achievements, with original creations like the Mogador (chocolate and passion fruit), Mosaïc (pistachio, cinnamon, and kirsch-soaked cherry), and Ispahan (rose, litchi, and raspberry), gaining legions of fans. You can try them and more at his 11 stores in Paris.”
