A new take on sweet dishes
Desserts with soy sauce as an ingredient are incredibly popular in Japan. Soy sauce is even used in ice-cream mixes to add a special caramel-like flavour. Other trend desserts include crème caramel with soy sauce, chocolate bars with delicious soy sauce crunch, as well as cakes and flans with soy sauce added to the cake mix or pastry mix – for an unforgettable Umami flavour experience.
A famous Japanese pastry chef has created a sponge roll that harmonises the flavours of soy sauce and vanilla in a very unique way. In fact, it’s so good that it already has a big fan base outside Japan.
