Les canelés de saison | “Citrouille” et “Thé, Iyokan et Chocolat Blanc”

    The opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics was held on October 10th, 1964. It was the very first Olympic that was held in Japan and also in Asia. Since 1966, the 10th of October was set as “Physical Education Day” to encourage people to have healthy minds and bodies through participating in sports. Many sports events such as athletic festivals are held throughout Japan on this day. The date was moved to the second Monday of October in 2020 to follow the Happy Monday project which encourages Japanese to have longer holidays. It will be called “Sports Day” instead of “Physical Education Day” from 2020. It will be moved to 24th of July for the next year as an exception for the 2nd Tokyo Olympic after 56 years. It will be the last time this year for this holiday to be called “Physical Education Day”. Let’s enjoy exercising under the refreshing weather of autumn. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Pumpkin” and “Tea, Iyokan and White Chocolate” are available from today, October 1st. Pumpkin canelés are decorated with pumpkin seeds with hand made pumpkin paste on top of the pumpkin dough. The tender sweetness of pumpkin is concentrated in each canelés. Tea, Iyokan and White Chocolate canelés are decorated with white chocolate and iyokan orange peel on top of the dough with tea leaves. Please enjoy the rich flavor in bergamot aroma of earl gray tea leaves and the freshness of orange.
