Last Monday I had to visit Tetsuya Sugimoto, one of the very top French Restaurants in the whole Prefecture after lunch to talk with Tetsuya about white asparagus producers in Shizuoka (there is one!).
Having already eaten lunch, I nonetheless could not resist asking for a light dessert with my coffee as we conducted our talks!

The cake was a mousse made with Hon Yama tea grown along the Abe and Warashina Rivers in Shizuoka City laying over light Genoise biscuit/short cake!

The ice cream/sorbet was created with organic Akihime Strawberries from Shizen no Chikara farm in Shizuoka City!
Incidentally all sugar comes from sugar canes grown in Kakegawa City!

A delicious and extravagant dessert in its simplicity!
The perfect dessert for slim-conscious ladies!
Even a chauvinistic male like me loved it!

  1. I’m intrigued by the matcha mousse… I have recently bought a 50% more expensive brand than usually and it gives a very similar super bright colour so I love playing with it. Do you know maybe what was there apart from the tea? Egg whites?
