When it comes to desserts Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん at Pissenlit French Restaurant in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, has never been afraid to experiment with ingredients that would discourage many a vaunted chef to try!

His latest creation has involved products Shizuoka Prefecture are justly famous beyond the mere borders of Japan!

Here is another overview as the “lengthy appearance” is not easy to represent in a single photography!
Apart of strawberries (topped with organic mint) and squat persimmons, what famous Shizuoka products have been used?

SN3O3036

Not inside the succulent pistachio in spite of its great marriage with the rest of the dessert!

SN3O3037

Shizuoka-grown wasabi!
Freshly grated wasabi extract wasincorporated in this exquisite panacotta!
The taste, but with not real piquancy, of the wasabi inside a sweet panacotta is difficult to describe, and simply said, I felt privileged with the discovery! Chili pepper or black pepper can be found in ice creams or choclate but this is different , and so elegant!
Note that the edible flowers are organic shiso/perilla flowers!

And the sauce was made with soy sauce from Amano Company in Gotemba City as it was generously united with a caramel sauce!

More than a discovery, a study in succulent artistry!
