Les canelés de saison | “Bankan” et “Maïs rôti”

    The hydrangea flowers bloom vibrantly in the rain. One of this month’s seasonal canelés, “Bankan”, also known as “Japanese grapefruit” for its refreshing flavor. They are called “Kawachi Bankan” as they were discovered in Kawachi Town in Kumamoto prefecture around 1905. They are harvested after being slowly ripened on the tree for 12 to 15 months and have a refreshing and elegant sweetness. During the rainy season, this fresh and lush aroma refreshes the spirit. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Grilled Corn” and “Bankan” are available from the 1st of June.
    Grilled corn canelés are with the dough mixed with cornmeal and soy sauce decorated on top with freeze-dried corn from Biei, Hokkaido. The sweetness of the corn and the toasty aroma of soy sauce would amuse your mouth with the crunchy texture. Bankan canelés are decorated with the jam made from Amakusa Bankan from Kumamoto and sprinkled with chopped pistachios. Please enjoy the refreshing sweetness and light bitterness.
