Here is a cake that will definitely tempt Memory Taste Girl’s appetite!
It has the added particularity that its name features my birthplace!
Chez Lui is a large “chain company” based in Tokyo and represented at Parco in Shizuoka City.
Their cakes have the merit to be made on site and some do deserve a mention!

Its name?
Bourgogne Noir Dijon.
Definitely a Japanese way of naming a cake!
It contains a lot of Cassis Liqueur which explains the mention of the Bourgogne Region and its capital, Dijon ( a bit of an oxymoron, I’m afraid). It just happens that I was born in the “City of the Dukes”!
It is mainly made up of Cassis Mousse coated with Cassis Coulis and decorated outside with white chocolate. It is furthermore topped with blueberry, blackberry, mint and chocolate.

The inside is pretty complex with a double base of almond biscuit and chocolate short cake.
A small chocolate short cake disc about two thirds of the cake in diameter has been “inserted” inside the mousse with some Creme Chantilly.

Quite sophisticated and delicious. To appreciate with coffee or liqueur!
