I have just discovered his new creation by talented Takuya Hanai and shared with my students.
I have to keep a constant lookout as this talented and still young patissier has a habit to offer new cakes almost every week.
This cake, Fedora, although fairly simple in concept, is a small gem:
On a thin layer of chocolate chips studded chocolate sponge, he first lay a layer of chocolate bavarois/mousse, then again, but twice a thick, a caramel bavarois/mousse with a final layer of thick caramel syrup.
Breaking through the whole and tasting the combination of the various tastes all at the same time reveals the sublime qualities of this little marvel!
To appreciate with a great coffee or English tea!
