This weekend, Mrs. CB and I decide to sample some of the best desserts and pastries that Tokyo has to offer.
We first headed to Kyobashi to visit Hidemi Sugino, the shop by one of the more famous pastry chefs in Tokyo. He is known for his mousse cakes, achieving great flavor and delicate shapes despite using less gelatin and sugar.
Next, it was off to Midtown for Sadaharu Aoki, famous for combining Japanese flavor and artistic flair with traditional French pieces like the macaron.
The Dean & DeLuca in Midtown is also a good stop, as they also gather some excellent desserts from across Tokyo and sell them in their shop each day so that you can avoid the hassle of tracking them down and waiting in line yourself.
At the end of the afternoon, we were able to assemble an amazing dessert buffet to share at home.
