Warabi-Mochi & Roll Cake by "Patisserie Brothers"

090921 012.jpg

Went to Osaka to watch a stage performance of Adam Cooper today...but unfortunately I found the cost performance of the show was terribly bad!!
So, I wanted to treat disappointed myself with something nice...very good excuse to buy special sweets!
Just encountered this shop with beautiful collection of Warabi-Mochi (the sweet we eat on the arrival of Tawaraya, you remember?) with Souce at the basement of Hanshin Depertment Store. Bought 6 out of total 20 different tastes:

1) Tomato Warabi-Mochi with Basil Source
2) Purple Sweet Poteto with White Sesame
3) White Peach with White Wine
4) Plum with White Peach
5) Pumpkin with Soy Milk
6) Mango with Mango

Oh, you should have a look of this site!

Also, I bought this beautiful roll cake, "Ebisu Roll"

The texture of sponge cake is fascinating! You can sense the expansive force of egg. And the cream is not sweet and the combination of it with the sponge is just like being in heaven! Yummy...

Art Exhibition of Sanzo Wada @ Himeji Art Museum

090921 001.jpg

The picture on this sine is very famous piece, all of my generation people saw this on the text book of art class. Interesting to know this artist won the 1st Academy Award as Japanese with costume design with the movie called "Jigoku-mon = Gate of Hell". The museum arranged 1day show of this movie at the conference room today and I joined the last show. However, I did not like the story nor the actor in the leading role...

When my parents went to Mt. Hiruzen for trecking last weekend, they brought some yogurt made of local jersey milk. It has a cream layer on the surface and is very yummy!

Farmer's Kitchen INNUIT

090914 018.jpg

Maybe it was about 1 year ago when my mum took me to this restaurant. They identify quality vegetable, meet & fish, etc and buy them from local farmers, butcher or fishmonger. With those fresh ingredients, they serve very nice meals.

You can choose white or brown rice and we always choose brown rice which contain more vitamins, minerals & fiber. Today, I chose "Grilled Japanese Spanish Mackerel salad style" with brown rice for lunch.

Scone

Baked scones today to consume clotted cream I brought from UK... I should have used proper butter rather than margarine! The flavor turned out that different.
