Mr. Takuya Iwai, owner of Taky’s in Shizuoka City makes a point to travel every Sunday to Tokyo for further research and study for the benefit of his customers.
I have just had the occasion to sample his new creation, a French cake called “A Valence”. Valence is a city along the Rhone River in the Southern half a France, a region famous for its nougat.
This cake is of the Millefeuille variety with thin layers of biscuit lacquered with caramel between which a generous amount of very sweet cream is spread.
The cream is butter cream including ground hazelnuts, praline and nougat.
Simple in concept, a very fulfilling dessert for officionados with a sweet tooth!
To appreciated with a strong coffee!
