●The calculated balance of the Trinity. It’s a product I’m proud of that I want people to say, “It’s probably the first in the world.” “My mission in making sweets is -discovery-. Macarons, ganaches, sable roses… I found a new sandwich with an adventurous recipe that gently connects the three moist layers. (Chef Rihito Kanai)”
The “Tulip Rose Sandwich” is made by sandwiching a smooth ganache that melts in your mouth with a macaron, a representative of Parisian sweets, and a beautiful sable rose. Exquisitely calculated balance with three moist layers that resonate exquisitely. It’s neither a macaron nor a cookie sandwich, it’s a “Tulip Rose Sandwich”. It’s a new sweet that people want to say “it’s surely the first in the world”.
There are 3 types of taste. Sweet and sour and juicy -strawberry-, tropical scent dripping -passion-, cacao richness and fragrance spread -chocolat-. If you take a bite, the taste full of Chef Kanai’s esprit will fill your mouth.
● “Beauty of subtraction”. Clean and stylish design packaging A stylish design package with boldly drawn tulip illustrations on a clean white background. Accented with a sparkling logo mark. When you open the lid, colorful sweets jump into your eyes, creating an atmosphere that makes your heart flutter. The individual packaging features a symbolic rose petal and a relief-like illustration of a tulip. Expressing the “beauty of subtraction” that does not omit the details. It’s simple yet eye-catching, so it’s perfect for white day and spring gifts, as well as rewards for yourself.
It will be available for a limited time only until early April, so be sure to check out the latest work “Tulip Rose Sandwich” released by TOKYO Tulip Rose!
