LE CAFE-LABO: Classic Cakes (2)

Following the greedy (LOL) comments of Taste Memory Girl and Rubber Slippers in Italy among others, I’ve decided to run a couple of series of cakes created by Shizuoka Patissiers which deserve a special mention. There are many actually, for the simple reason that our Prefecture has a sizeable population (4 million) and a mild climate propitious for lighter cakes and a larger scope of tastes.

LE CAFE-LABO is the kind of Patisserie which rests on its (deserved) laurels and always endeavours to reveal another facet of its chef’s talents.
A typical example is its new creation, Art Nouveau:

I will explain from the top this time:
-Coconuts Blanc-Mange with a couple of berries.
-Between two layers of White Chocolate Biscuit, pineapple, banana, Blueberry in fruit sauce.
-Pistachio Brule (pudding)
More of a cake for adults than children, it is particularly deliciously light and gratifying with the first heats of the year!

  1. Poor Rowena!
    I still have two cake postings pending!
    I will have to think of not overdoing it!
    Mind you, you got me cheese! (incidentally, I should remedy that next month!)
    Do not despair, you eat and drink beauties more than a lot of us!


  2. Honestly, I am in the wrong country when it comes to desserts. Japan and France are numero uno. Italy’s desserts are either 1. boring (the tiramisu has been done to death) or 2. good only when enjoyed in the sunny island ambiance of Sicily (the cannoli with fresh ricotta, the granita!).

    Pistachio brulee sounds fabu!
