French Cake by Bernard Heberle: Mystral

My good friend, Bernard Heberle, the owner/chef of Abondance in Hamamatsu City has recently been elected the best patissier in Shizuoka Prefecture (4,000,000 souls) by the biggest Food Blog Community in Japan, namely Tabelog!

He was kind enough to send me his latest creation before taking some well-earned holidays back home in Alsace with the following comments in French:

“Voici la dernière nouveauté avant pour départ pour mes vacances , Mystral , non non ce n’est pas une faute d’orthographe ni de frappe , le mariage entre Myrtilles et Mistral car après avoir dégusté ce gâteau c’est comme une tornade de bien être qui envahie tout le corps et l’esprit.
La combinaison entre la verveine et ces myrtilles qui sont cultivées spécialement pour Abondance est un délice.
Le tout dans une crème diplomate verveine et une génoise mousseline au cassis.
Bonne dégustation !!!!”

“Here is my last creation before leaving on a long holiday:
Mystral. No, there is no mistake or typo in the name (usually written “mistral”). It is a marriage between Myrtilles/Blueberries and Mistral/Mistral wind blowing very hard down the Rhone Valley. After having tasted this cake, one feels like taken away by a tornado which spreads such great well-being through the body and mind!
The conbination of verveine with blueberries (especially grown for Abondance) is a delicacy!
The whole included inside a mousseline genoise perfumed with cassis!
