“Properly made marmalade has no peer as the crowning glory on a piece of hot, buttered toast. On a morning dark and drear, it is superbly restorative, a welcome lift as the new day begins, sweet but not cloying, a ray of sunshine spooned from a jar”
– R. W. Apple Jr.

Flor Patisserie by Chef Yamashita on Duxton Hill


It is said that the Japanese have an acute over-developed sense of specialization. They are the world’s foremost perfectionists, even more so than the Germans. Witness the Japanese Matsusaka Beef, Americans talk about beef marbling but when it comes to a showdown, the Japanese Matsusaka beef makes American USDA Prime look positively emaciated.
