Mille-feuille à ma façon

Pie crust with praline sandwiched inside is enveloped in a rich custard cream flavored with vanilla beans from Ishigaki island.

Message from the chef
Paying homage to the traditional confectionary beloved for centuries, I challenged myself to evolve the mille-feuille into a modern form.

Summer Mille-feuille by Esterre

Crispy caramelized homemade puff pastry and light vanilla cream creates a surprising texture with just a mouthful.
Esterre’s philosophy of uncovering high-quality ingredients from Japan to create a contemporary French haute cuisine with less sugar, less salt and less fat is showcased in this mille-feuille.

Message from the chef
The combination of raspberry and fresh lime zest is sure to bring summer to your palate. I hope guests will feel the summer vibe with this special treat.
