  • About

This incredible dessert combines the best of both worlds: the graceful beauty of Japanese traditional form and the satisfying richness of Western confections. These elegantly tied, cream-filled pouches could be served at the conclusion of any meal, or as part of a midafternoon tea.

The Japanese technique for flipping thin sheets of omelet is illustrated and described in detail in the sushi chapter (pp. 133–134) and the same technique is useful here for making the crepes.
