Les canelés de saison | “Maïs” et “Myrtilles”

    June has come and flowers of hydrangea looks beautiful than ever. In Chinese characters, hydrangea is written as ‘flower of purple sun’ in Japan. Interestingly, the name was originally for Lilac in China named by a Chinese poet but a Japanese scholar Shitago Minamoto mistakenly translated to hydrangea and the name became well recognized. It may feel that the name of flower of purple sun is perfect as the round purple flower shines like the sun in gloomy humid rainy season. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Grilled Corn” and “Blueberry” are available from today, June 1st. Corn canelés are with cornmeal dough and soy sauce decorated on top with freeze-dried corn from Biei, Hokkaido. The sweetness of corn and the toasty aroma of soy sauce would amuse your mouth and make you smile. Blueberry canelés are baked with blueberries preserved in rum in the dough and dolled up with dried blueberries and jam. Please enjoy the harmony of its light sweetness and sourness.
