s varied as the control of air pollution, the use ofpesticides, the development of highways, the con-trol of population growth, and the study of disease. Ecology is the study of the oii<os: the neigh-borhood, the dwelling place, the habitat. Spe-cifically it is the study of the interrelations betweenorganisms and their environment. By its very nature all ecology is complex, but hu-man ecology is especially complex, because of thecomplex nature of man. Not only must man adaptto the food he eats, the air he breathes, and thebacteria and pollens he encounters, but he must alsoadapt to his family, his community, his job, and tomany other facets of his society, the people in it, andthe rapidly changing technology he has created. It has been this rapid development of technologythat has led to the present growing concern abouthuman ecology: • As we have created new pesticides and have ap-plied them to our fields in order to obtain a greateryield of food crops, we have found that when we

destroyed the pests, we destroyed other plants andanimals that we wish to have. Furthermore, some ofour chemicals have been eaten by fish or animals,which people in turn have consumed, and the chem-icals have found their way into human systems. • As we have developed electric dishwashers so wecould get the housewife out of the kitchen, we havefound that we needed new detergents to make themwork well. Unfortunately, some of these new deter-gents were immune to the bacterial action that de-stroys soap. They passed through our septic systemsand our sewage disposal plants. Soon we had sudsin our streams and foam in our drinking water. • As we have developed automobiles to get usaround more quickly, incinerators to burn our trash,and power plants to supply us with our ever-growingneeds for electricity, we have found that there is ahaze in the air over our cities, and on still days oureyes smart because of the smog that we have created.

Pierre Hermé – Christmas 2007 macarons
Image by Canon S3 IS in Paris, France
I had the best Christmas macarons before taking the picture! The fig foie gras ones, which you can see here:
The new 8 euros apiece macarons are not worth it! They are not bad, unlike the horrible white truffle one, but they are not the best macarons ever; they are average Pierre Hermé macarons. I could feel a little vinegar, but I can drink far cheaper and far better organic vinegar in my kitchen; and the black truffle flavor was rather good, but then what?
And the chocolate foie gras macaron is good but at the same time on the verge of being disgusting.
So my advice is to stick to regular macarons, like the coffee one: simple but exceptional!
But let us not blame Pierre Hermé: we love him also because he explores new paths in our palates, even if each one of us does not love every adventure he offers!
