French Dessert: Chocolate Ravioli at Pissenlit in Shizuoka City!

SN3O4603

Service: Excellent and very friendly.
Facilities: Great cleanliness overall. Superb washroom (mouthwash and toothpicks provided!)!
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive, very good value.
Strong points: Interesting wine list. Great use of local products, especially organic vegetables and Shizuoka-bred meat and caught fish.

Ravioli are certainly a universally popular way of cooking pasta but have you ever imagined it as a dessert in French cuisine?
It looks so simple, tasty and elegant but it requires some skill!

Chef Toru Arima/有馬亨さん is always looking forward to offer something off the beaten tracks, even with seemingly common ingredients, but keeping things simple at all times!
So the dessert I recently enjoyed in the heat of summer consisted of the above home-made chocolate ice-cream, an offering definitely aimed at an adult sweet tooth!
The little tomadillo is organic and Shizuoka-grown!

Now, this multi-layered vanilla and chocolate Marquise cake must have taken some time to concoct!

The cold chocolate ravioli!
Not that simple to keep them ready although I have an inkling they are made at the very last minute and cooled down in ice!

A last note: the sauce is vanilla and framboise/raspberry coulis!

I hope I gave you some ideas for your next party!

  1. The chocolate ravioli sounds like a very creative dessert. The layered cake looks extraordinary with the thin multiple neat layers…. Luckily I always have chocolate in stock because I need some now!

    1. This is real pasta containing vanilla and sugar (a small amount as the chocolate sweetness is sufficient!)!
      Nothing strange actually as friend chefs of mine said it is found in Italy, too!
