Les canelés de saison | “Noix de Coco” et “Amande mangue”

    July 1st is “Yama-biraki”, the start of the mountain climbing season. Since ancient times, worshiping mountains has been common in Japan as people believed “gods reside in the mountains.” Mountains were considered sacred where only monks and ”Yamabushi”, the mountain priests were allowed to enter and practice asceticism. In modern times, the general public began to enjoy mountain climbing and was allowed to climb the mountains for limited periods of time. “Yama-biraki” is also a ceremony to allow people to go into the mountains and wish climbers safety. The summer mountain season is now in full swing. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Mango-Annin“ and “Coconut” are available from today, July 1st. Mango-Annin canelés are baked with dried mango put inside of apricot kernel paste. They are adorably decorated with some dried mangos and apricot kernel fondant. The mellow sweetness and sourness might lead you to a tropical getaway. Coconut canelés are with plentiful roasted coconuts mixed in the dough and sprinkled on top. You can almost hear the ocean waves while tasting the canelés.
