Pierre Hermé (born 20 November 1961) is a French baker.
Heir to four generations of Alsatian bakery and pastry-making tradition, Pierre Hermé began his career at the age of 14 as an apprentice to Gaston Lenôtre.
He created the Maison Pierre Hermé Paris in 1997 with his associate Charles Znaty, and the company has been expanding since 2010, with shops in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The first Pierre Hermé shop opened in Tokyo in 1998, followed in 2001 by one in Paris.
Hermé was the youngest person to be named France's Pastry Chef of the Year, and is the only pastry chef to have been decorated as a Chevalier of Arts and Letters. He was awarded "Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur" by Jacques Chirac in May 2007.
