I've been lucky enough to try soubriquettes Awayuki, in fact I'm eating one right now. I'm not an expert on these things (and wouldn't be good on one of the oishii programmes due to lack of suitable food words) but I do know that it is superb. The best of it's kind I have had (and that's not just because it's soubriquet!) My wife is very impressed too and already wants more.

 

Thanks soubriquet and soubriquette.

Yum. Sound better than my breakfast, which was a piece of toast and coffee.

I can't remember having a poor namachocolate cake. Love the cake shops around where we live, and the bread shops too. They are just so tempting.

They sure are. There's a bread shop just up the road from where I live and they make some super breads. They latest new one is a fairy hard dryish bread they are calling "German style". Don't know whether it really is German style or not but it makes a really good sandwich roll. \:\) Then a cake for dessert.

Apologies - I didn't realise it was Soub'ettes shop.

Considering the background you've provided on her in other posts (travel, OS working, etc), the cakes should taste as good as they look. thumbsup.gif

So I suppose you're her offically unofficial taste-tester, then? (Do you need an apprentice?) ;\)

Thanks for the nice words, SJ1 thumbsup.gif

 

That's OK SubZero. I know that the supermarket/train station stuff can be all style and no substance. The awayuki, btw, is her speciality cake. She has it, and the production process patented.

 

I don't have a sweet tooth, so I eat about 3 pieces of cake per year. That's only when she brings me something to try. OTOH, if she made pies, I'd be in the shop several times per week.

I'm on an ice cream boom at the moment. I like trying new flavors that they bring out. Had a nice one yesterday at Baskin Robbins or whatever its called, it was like an anko with caramel type flavor. Very nice.

Those cakes look scrummy. I eat far too many cakes and sweet foods, but happily my waistline doesn't expand with it. clap.gif

That looks good, is it chocolate?

 

Recently I have also been making some good curries. Got a good book (Indian Restaurant Cookbook) that I'm using as a base and then going from there.

 

I can make a mean Korma these days.

I like that too slow. Anything sweet and it will be at least a minor hit with me \:\)

 

I really like the heavy type of cakes at the moment.

my students made me takoyaki with okara konnyaku instead of octopus.

 

i was very happy with the results.

 

and i have a new favorite on-hill snack, instant miso.

 

i get some good Shinshu miso, grill it in a pan for a bit to get rid of the extra water, amd mix it with some minced green onion.

Then i roll it into tablespoon-sized balls, cover it with konbu dashi powder, and wrap it up with a little dry wakame-rolled fu mix.

 

Add hot water up at the hill, and you have the best instant soup ever.

I really like the ichigo daifuku (I think that is what it is called) I can get at a cake shop up the road from where I live. It's a strawberry covered in cream, with some sponge and then covered in pink mochi. Nice \:\)
