Les canelés de saison | “Ananas” et “Fleur de sel de Guérande”

    As the midsummer sun beats down upon us, sunflowers are gazing at the blue sky. It may be common sense that the sunflowers implicate the sun all over the world, in Japanese, sunflowers are literally written as the “sun-facing flower” as the flower moves its flower along with the movement of the sun; in French, it is called “Tournesol” but it is also called “Soleil”, the sun. An interesting fact is that the flowers only face the east when fully bloomed though it follows the sun when they are young or buds. Just as the sunflowers grow well nourished by the energy of the sun, we could use the power of the sunlight just the right amount and ride out the summer heat. Our pair of seasonal canelés for this month, “Pineapple” and “Salt of Guérande” are available from today, August 1st. Pineapple canelés have dried pineapples covered by white sweet bean paste inside, dolled up with homemade fresh pineapple jam on top. This tropical, summery canelé brings out the sweet, sour taste of pineapple. 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.
