LE CAFE-LABO: Classic Cakes (10)-Tiramisu


The chef at La cafe-Labo changed some time ago. Now a gentleman is at the helm and a new trend has emerged.


This Tiramisu concept is very Japanese in the sense that it is almost “packaged”. When you know that shops spend enormous amounts of energy for the sole purpose of packaging and presentation you understand that practicality and quality are inseparable in this country!


The big “blob” on the side of the cake is actually there to add a modern artistic touch.
As for the cake itself, it is based on a Biscuit Joconde type confectionery repeated a quarter of the way up.
The “mouuse/Cream” was made with egg white, fresh cream, Mascarpone, egg, milk and sugar of the highest quality with the final note being a thin coat of cocoa powder.


My student commented it was milky and light and yummy!

Simple in concept, almost austere, but so delicious!
To be savoured with a great coffee!

  1. And i never get tired of tiramisu huh? I don’t know what’s about this dessert, no matter what, i always fall over and over in love with it. Even when i am strictly on diet hehe


  2. That looks fabulous. I especially like the brushed effect.

    Thanks for introducing yourself. I’m new to food buzz and to blogging so bear with me while I get the hang of it.

    While I’m here I might need your advice for a dish I’m working on. I intend to make one component for a dish that is a sake jelly cube with some red mullet suspended in the centre. I’m not sure yet if pure sake is going to be too powerful for the fish and maybe I have to calm it down or sweeten it a little. I’m thinking citrus or a herbal element. Difficulty is it has to be crystal clear whatever it is. If you know of any clear compliments to sake that go with fish or a maybe a flavored sake itself, please let me know.
