Alexandre Stern has been travelling the world in search of rare honey for years. He has now opened his own store at the Madeleine.
As a passionate and devoted honey expert Alexandre Stern has been developing his idea to become a honey designer. In 2014 he took the leap, combining his two passions of travel and good food. A visionary, who dreamt of breakfasts with honey from the pine-clad Vosges Mountains, he set off to travel through France, then around the world in search of the best honey. From Canadian raspberry to Yemeni jujube honey, he found more and more textures and fragrances. Thanks to what his discoveries he could then concentrate on his new job: “honey designer”. Inspired by the approach of wine experts who assembles the great wines, Alexandre Stern decides to blend honey to create unique flavours. With its collection of 600 different varieties of honey, Alexander Stern tests blending of flavours in search of determining factors contributing to the perfect honey: sweetness, acidity, floral notes or a touch of citrus…
