Les canelés de saison |“Fleur de sel de Guérande” et “Myrtille et Fromage à la Crème”

    The month of July in Japanese old calendar used to be called “Fumidsuki”, a month of letters since people wrote poems or wishes on Tanzaku, the oblong cards for “Tanabata”, the star festival, to wish for improvements in calligraphy. The 5 colors of Tanzaku are from 5 basic elements that were believed to make up the world in the ancient Chinese philosophy as blue: wood, red: fire, yellow: earth, white: metal and black: water. Tanabata is one of the 5 seasonal related celebrations of a year in Japan and is also called “Shichiseki”. Tanabata is celebrated at Shiten-no-ji area in Osaka ever year from 6th to 8th of July. It is almost overwhelmingly beautiful to see about 400 bamboo trees decorated with Tanzaku with all the wishes written by visitors. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Salt of Guérande” and “Blueberry and Cream Cheese” are available from today, July 1st. The Salt of Guérande canelés are made with salty dough flavored with “fruits of the sea” or salt of Guérande, France. You would enjoy the fresh afternote spreading as the mild saltiness gently brings out its sweetness. Blueberry and Cream Cheese canelés are baked with dried blueberries preserved in rum mixed in the dough. They are also filled with the paste made from cream cheese and blueberry jam. Please enjoy the harmony of its light sweetness and sourness.
