about Canelé

Canelé is a traditional French confectionery that originated in the Bordeaux region of France. This area was known to be a famous wine producing area, and a process was done to clear the wine, removing impurities from the liquid to increase its transparency using egg whites. It is said that the invention of the pastry canelé was born as a way to use the surplus egg yolk. At that time, beekeeping was also popular to create materials such as candles and medicines, and it was said that the dough was poured into a copper mold coated with beeswax prior to baking. *There stories are various theories.

Chestnut Flour Canelé

The Chestnut flour canelé at MAISON with ARTS & SCIENCE is made by the traditional method of applying beeswax to a copper mold and baking it for a savory and glossy finish. With chestnut flour, which is often used in MAISON recipes at Paris, we have gone through extensive trial and error while changing the sweetness and powder composition, and succeeded in finalizing a tasty canelé recipe with the natural sweetness and aroma unique to chestnuts. As every piece is carefully baked one by one each morning at the shop in Minami Aoyama, all canelés are available for a limited quantity.
