Sweet dough, pistachio cream, pistachio crisp with fleur de sel, pistachio pastry cream, pistachio cream, pistachio whipped ganache, pistachio slivers, runny praline… Just talking about it makes my mouth water. The strawberry revisited, the rice pudding cake flavored with sudachi, a Japanese citrus fruit, or the vanilla flan are real wonders. »
