For five generations Wadaman Company has specialized in roasting the finest sesame seeds in the world. These dainty seeds flow through a multi-step process of meticulously sorting, cleaning and roasting. The toasted black sesame seeds are then made into a fine paste by passing through a ceramic refiner multiple times. The delicate texture and nuanced nutty aromas are truly unparalleled.
Our Mikino Truffle features this fine ingredient, which pairs delightfully with the caramel flavor of brûléed bananas. We suggest that before you prepare the bananas you take a little time to sit quietly to think about your dreams. See your dreams in your mind and send them deep into the center of your body, plant these dreams within. What colors do you see? What visions? Use this imagery as inspiration and paint the colors of these dream visions onto the toothpicks. Recognize that you are creating a wonderfully sweet space of new beginnings.
