La Pâtisserie du musée par Toshi Yoroizuka

A new patisserie makes a debut at MOA Museum of Art,
supervised by an internationally acclaimed patissier, Toshihiko Yoroizuka.

He spent 8 years in Europe, mastering the art of patisserie, and he became the first Japanese “chef patissier” at a Michelin 3-star restaurant in Belgium. With his deep appreciation of European traditions and cultures, Yoroizuka produces enticing sweets with elegance.

He is also passionate about truly tasteful sweets made from genuine ingredients. To help ensure a supply of ingredients that meet his ideal, he runs his own Yoroizuka Farm in Ichiyajo, Odawara, and a 100% organic cacao farm in Ecuador, helping local agricultural communities to thrive.

La Pâtisserie du musée has ample seating overlooking the Museum garden, serving specialty desserts including blackcurrant mousse cake “Cassis,” pistachio-rich mousse “Bernard,” and baked cheesecake with a hint of cognac “Fromage.” A delight both to your eyes and your taste buds, these sweets will make your short break at La Pâtisserie du musée a heavenly moment to share.
