It is Kinako.
Have you ever eaten Gold leaf?
Now we have some gold leaf foods at home.
This time I’m going to talk about some gold leaf food in Japan.
I will introduce some gold leaf food or drink you can buy online, too
Gold leaf food
These are Gold leaf food we have now.
My husband and I ate these foods as dessert.
Gold leaf castella, Gold leaf Yokan, Milk jellies with edible gold flakes…
Are you worried about the taste？
Don’t worry. I never felt any taste.
Gold leaf castella from Kanazawa
This is Gold leaf Castella from Kanazawa City.
I got this as a souvenir.
The gold color looks so gorgeous and the castella were delicious!
Gold leaf Yokan
This is a Japanese dessert “Yokan” my mother got for us.
There are two layers, the bottom part is yokan and the top part is jelly and gold leaf.
If you have a chance to eat this, please prepare delicious green tea, too.
It would be a perfect match!
Gold leaf ice cream
You can find gold leaf ice cream in Kanazawa.
If you eat this, your mouth would be filled with gold.
Don’t forget to take a picture of it for a memory.
Edible gold flakes from Kanazawa
This is a stick of “edible gold flakes”.
There are gold flakes inside the stick.
I put this edible gold flakes on top of the jelly.
Of course, you can put this to sake or coffee, too.
Some people enjoy Sake with gold flakes in New Year!
There’s no taste, but it looks so gorgeous!
Kanazawa city if famous for Gold leaf in Japan
Do you know about “Kanazawa city”?
Kanazawa city is in Ishikawa prefecture in Japan.
Kanazawa is famous for the Gold leaf-making industry.
I already introduced some gold leaf foods from Kanazawa, but there are more.
Gold leaf sushi, gold leaf kuzukiri, gold leaf takoyaki, gold leaf senbei, gold leaf cake, etc…
In the same prefecture, Kaga city, you can eat “gold leaf shabu shabu”, too!
