Supervised by an internationally acclaimed patissier, Toshihiko Yoroizuka.
Yoroizuka spent 8 years in Europe, mastering the art of patisserie. He became the first Japanese “chef patissier” at a Michelin 3-star restaurant in Belgium. With his deep and passionate appreciation of European traditions and cultures, Yoroizuka produces enticing sweets with elegance.
His passion extends to truly tasteful sweets made from genuine ingredients. To help ensure a supply of fresh ingredients, 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's ample seating overlooks the Museum garden. Enjoy our specialty desserts - blackcurrant mousse cake Cassis, pistachio-rich mousse Bernard, and baked cheesecake with a hint of cognac Fromage, for example.
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.
Born in 1965, Yoroizuka grew up in Kyoto and apprenticed in hotels in the Kansai region. He spent 8 years in Europe further training in cake making, and won the 2000 INTERSUC competition in Paris. Subsequently, he worked at a Michelin 3-star restaurant in Belgium, Bruneau, as a chef patissier. Back in Japan, he launched his own brand Toshi Yoroizuka in 2002. He opened one of the world’s first cocoa production farm in Ecuador in 2010, named after him “Toshi Yoroizuka Cacao Farm.” In 2013, he was appointed as a goodwill ambassador to promote French tourism in Japan. His desserts were served at the banquet celebrating the 40-year partnership between the ASEAN and Japan. In 2016, he opened his flagship shop Toshi Yoroizuka Tokyo.
