Patisserie Le Genmai – 玄米を極めるル・ゲンマイ


A Patisserie near Shakujii-Koen station with an outdoor terrasse. What is the reason for making cakes with “genmai” (whole-rice)? Uncertainly but it pops up that an essential value would exist in any food to rely on material produced in the neighborhood. In any case, you will find the cakes they make, both fresh and baked, are astoundly gentle. They don’t use purified sugar but only rely on cane, honey or brown “Wasanbon” sugar. Genmai is not as easy as flour and I suppose they had tough challenge to lift the quality to this level in gateau biodynami.
