Yesterday was one of those very rare Sunday evening when we go out together to enjoy a repast on that particular day of the week.
Although this is the second time we visited Solio in less than 2 weeks this had been planned for some time.
Now, we had the occasion to enjoy two cute little desserts I have the pleasure to introduce here.
Note that good Italian restaurants in Japan come up with far more simple and sophisticated desserts than in Italy!
First: Royal Milk Tea Panacotta!
Adding seasonal fruit contributes so much to elegance, colors and taste!
This Royal Milk Tea is both rich and light as the Japanese do not add as much sugar as we Europeans.
The result is a light and sophisticated panacotta that leaves such a nice fianl not after a rich dinner!
Ciccolato Fondente, the Italian cousin of a Fondant au Chocolat!
Once again seasonal fruit add so much to balance and also health!
The cake itself is so cute and small enough not to worry you about the calories!
I surprised everyone when I asked for a knife, but is there a better way to make you discover the little treasure out of its trove?
Absolutely succulent! A sin!
Once again a big thank to Chef Takehiko Katoh/加藤武彦
