Browsing the internet is always a trip. You really have no idea what you're going to stumble across. One minute you reading the latest about Archer, and the next thing you know you're on a site featuring desserts. I just about fell out of my chair when I saw the article and accompanying photos of this eclectic dessert. Literally fell off my chair. Yes, I was THAT surprised. I'm exaggerating just a smidge, but I was surprised and completely fascinated (as I always am by Japanese cuisine) by this dessert. Look at it:
I know. I was thinking the same thing you are. That it's completely crazy and amazing that someone came up with this - an actual dessert that looks like water but has the consistency of cake. In Japan it's called "mizu shingen mochi" and it's made from rice flour and water from the Japanese Alps. The images of the cake have already taking twitter by storm, and the taste has been described as having “a pleasant natural sweetness…(and) goes incredibly smoothly down your throat.”
God I love Japan. I mentioned on this post before that in my honest opinion, Japan truly sets the standard and culinary benchmark for the world. Always innovative, beautifully presented, and so, so good. I'll bet the cake tastes *mouthwateringly (*there is a bit of a pun with this word - do you see it?) amazing. I want to go back there right now and eat that cake. Actually, I want to go back there and eat everything. The end.
