“Japanese tea-based pastries” will be the theme of the demonstration. Sharing his passion for this topic, the chef will prepare two pastries, the first flavored with ryoku-cha (green tea) and the second with hōji-cha (roasted green tea).

• Sayama manière An entremets that condenses all the charms of Sayama in Saitama prefecture, a region that takes pride in the renowned teas it produces and where the pastry shop Acacier is located. Each component of the entremets (ganache, Chantilly, syrup, crumble) uses a different variety of green tea, bringing out its unique qualities and flavor.

• Roasted tea Chantilly meringue A confectionary blooming with Japanese aroma, born of the encounter between a meringue, so imbued with French esprit, and a Japanese hōji-cha (roasted green tea). As hōji-cha is infused into both the meringue and a ganache, the result is an exquisite balance of sweet and somewhat bitter tea aroma.
