  • BAKE CHEESE TART & Dandelion Chocolate Collaborate on Valentine’s Chocolate Cheese Tart

    14.January.2019 | FOOD

    BAKE CHEESE TART has teamed up with Dandelion Chocolate―the bean-to-bar chocolate makers from San Francisco―to release the new Baked Chocolate Cheese Tart. It will be available from January 11 to February 14 just in time for the Valentine’s season.

    The tart is made with cocoa beans farmed in Guatemala and carefully selected by Dandelion Chocolate. The cocoa beans are heated more thoroughly to the core than usual and carefully roasted to leave a strong taste on the palate like that of brandy. In one bite your taste buds are treated to an amalgamation of cheese mousse and rich caramel with an aftertaste of cocoa beans that have a fruity sourness to them. The lingering aftertaste is nuanced like red wine.

    The cream cheese used in the cheese mousse is an original blend that mainly uses cream cheese made in Hokkaido which offers unique flavour and texture. It is mixed with Dandelion Chocolate’s ganache. The cookie batter is laced with cookie powder for added crunch. The tart is fried once like this and again with the mousse. This double fry technique gives the tart its distinct deliciousness.

    Dandelion Chocolate taste-tested this tart countless times before putting on the market. The climate during the cocoa bean farming and gathering changed the taste and fragrance of the beans. Only the best beans are used in the baking process.

    BAKE CHEESE TART are holding a Valentine’s promotion with the concept “From hands to hands” in line with the release of the Baked Chocolate Cheese Tart. Limited edition packaging will be available with designs inspired by the manual labour of those people around the world that made this tart possible. Small gift boxes will also be available.

Pierre Draps, the chocolatier behind GODIVA, was saddened by the aftermath, and wanted to do his part to bring happiness wherever he went. He decided to paint his delivery van pink, in hopes of bringing joy to the people of Brussels, and drove it around during his chocolate deliveries.

  • This Week’s Dessert: Savouring Autumntime Matcha Sweets at ATELIER de GODIVA in Ikebukuro

    16.October.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    One thing I do at least once a week without fail is treat myself out to some delicious food or dessert. It’s very important time well spent to ensure happiness.

    I’ve been working relatively hard as of late. I had some spare time before a business meeting, so I took advantage of the occasion to treat myself to some desserts. My destination: ATELIER de GODIVA located inside Seibu Ikebukuro.

    GODIVA has numerous stores throughout Tokyo, but Ikebukuro’s concept store branch has an eat-in space that’s perfect for that tea or coffee break.


    ATELIER de GODIVA boasts that same level of quality when it comes to their desserts, some of which are exclusive to this branch. There are only three branches: this one in Seibu Ikebukuro (Tokyo), another in Daimaru Kyoto (Kyoto), and the last in Hakata Hankyu (Fukuoka). The cake I am showing you today is a special dessert sold only in these three branches (and is takeout only at Hakata Hankyu).


    The first delight I ordered was the Mousse Matcha Cherry.

    Mousse Matcha Cherry: Eat in ¥980 / Takeout ¥780 (*Matcha Ice Cream is eat-in only)

    Available: Until November 26, 2019 while supplies last

    The shiny cake is served on a round white plate with a dollop of matcha ice cream. The pink berry sauce is drizzled around the plate to make the plating even cuter.

    Time to tuck in. This extravagant cake is supported by a fluffy matcha mousse topped with a crunchy chocolate sable. On top of that still are juicy cherries, adding a hint of freshness to the cake. The matcha glaze on the mousse has just the right amount of bitterness, which when coupled with the subtly sweet matcha mousse makes for a heavenly balance of flavours. Lined around the base of the mousse are sweet and sour dried raspberries which elevated the matcha-ness of the matcha mousse.

    The matcha ice cream which it comes with when you order to eat in is rich and creamy.

    I was full up after my dessert, but since I’d taken the time to come here I wanted to order a drink too… so I got a takeout Chocolixir Uji Matcha Kiwami from a shop adjoining ATELIER de GODIVA.

    Chocolixir Uji Matcha Kiwami – ¥602 (*Takeout only at the GODIVA Seibu Ikebukuro branch)

    This new drink is part of GODIVA’s chocolate and tea pairing series. The chefs at GODIVA have carefully selected the best varieties of tea to combine with chocolate. This one is an iced drink made with white chocolate and matcha.

    It’s a mix of GODIVA’s popular smooth and sweet white chocolate and rich Uji matcha. It’s crowned with a sprinkling of bitter Uji matcha powder. All of the flavours are highlighted in this sweet drink. The crunchy white chocolate pieces you sip up as you drink are delicious. It’s the kind of drink where you’re sure to find something new each time you take a drink.


    My 30-minute tea break is my little self-indulgence for the day. Spare minutes in my daily schedule affords me the chance to go and enjoy some delicious desserts. You should treat yourself to some special autumntime sweets too.


    Today’s Presents

    Matcha Adzuki ATELIER Tablet – ¥800

    It’s important to share the happiness between family and colleagues on when you get the chance to enjoy something tasty. The present I bought today was a tablet chocolate handmade in the shop. The matcha white chocolate has almonds in it as well as Japanese-style chocolate mixed with adzuki. It has a strong matcha flavour and isn’t overly-sweet. You can also request for a ribbon to be tied around it for gift-giving. It’s a chocolate that’s sure to bring anyone joy.
