The pastry store “Patisserie SATSUKI” in the three hotels directly managed by Hotel New Otani (Tokyo, Makuhari, and Osaka) will release the “New Extra Super Grape Shortcake” on September 1. Limited quantity. Limited to the autumn season. Price: 3,240 yen (tax included).
Limited to 3 for 1 day!
A beautiful combination of gorgeous yellow-green and large purple-black grains, this superb shortcake is only available in autumn. It is filled with juicy Shine Muscat, which boasts an elegant sweetness with a sugar content of 18 degrees, and Pione, which has a perfect balance of rich sweetness and refreshing acidity. This is a rewarding sweet filled with seasonal delicacies that can only be enjoyed during this season. What’s more, they only sell three a day in Osaka!
The sponge dough is made of the hotel’s original “white cereal” mixed with millet, cane millet, amaranth and other cereals, and brown rice eggs from chickens raised on brown rice. It has a soft and fluffy flavor that goes perfectly with the juicy and sweet grapes.
The fresh cream is a combination of “low-fat cream” produced in Omuta, Kyushu, and slightly fragrant “almond milk cream” to create a smooth texture with a clean aftertaste. Each layer has a hidden flavor of fresh lychee, which enhances the gorgeous aroma and elegant sweetness of the grapes.
What is the Super Series/Extra Super Series?
In 2004, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the opening of Hotel New Otani, Grand Chef Shinsuke Nakajima created the “Super Amaou Shortcake”, paying close attention to the ingredients and manufacturing process. In 2014, for the 50th anniversary of Hotel New Otani, the “Super Amaou Shortcake” was created with even more carefully selected ingredients to surpass the “Super Shortcake. In 2014, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening, the “Extra Super Series” was created with even more carefully selected ingredients to surpass the Super Shortcake. It has become a signature cake that sells out every evening. All of these cakes are made with the utmost care and attention to detail, and are discontinued when the main ingredients have passed their peak of deliciousness.
