Experience flower tea and rose cheese while choosing flowers in a space surrounded by flowers
There are two flower drinks prepared for this day. "Rose tea" and "Roseberry soda" using edible roses. You can enjoy it with your eyes, taste it with your tongue, and enjoy the lingering scent that comes out of your nose. In addition, we have prepared a rose jam and cheese pairing that uses plenty of fragrant edible roses produced in Japan. The cheese I chose for pairing was "Salvac Cremasco". It is characterized by the gentle sweetness derived from milk, the richness that is as strong as the acidity of rose jam, and the balance of sourness that is close to rose jam. Selected by the cheese craftsman at the cheese shop LAMMAS (6-12-1 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo Hills Residence A 1F).
Domestic rose fragrant rose jam used by Michelin-starred restaurants
No fragrance is used. You can enjoy the scent of real edible roses. Ingredients: Rhubarb, Sugar, Rose, Lemon Juice. The acidity is a composition that complements the scent of roses.
Commitment to rose jam "What should I do to enhance the wonderful scent of domestic roses? ], I was particular about pursuing thoroughly. The rose alone has a wonderful aroma, but the core of the deliciousness is weak. We couldn't just rely on sugar, so we combined rhubarb, which has a good aroma, balances sweetness and sourness, and has a natural consistency. In order to make the sweet scent of this rose even more pleasant and refreshing, we also added a small amount of lemon to bring out the scent of this rose that is not just sweet.
Background of making rose jam <br /> An edible rose with a wonderful fragrance that is unique in the world. How can I convey this beauty to many people? I thought from the beginning, and made a jam that you can enjoy the petals as they are. Of course, I could have used just the scent, but I felt that the best way to make jam would be to use the texture and flavor of the petals, since the roses are edible. We hope that this rose jam will be an opportunity to enjoy delicious flowers, and that it will be loved not only in Japan but also in the world.
