ANA has partnered with internationally renowned, award-winning pâtissier Pierre Hermé Paris to create 3 exclusive dessert concoctions for its schmanciest clients. Offerings include a matcha green tea custard complemented by chestnut cream, chestnuts pan-fried with pepper and vanilla, passion fruit jelly, and a passion fruit flavored biscuit, a mixed fruit compote with cheese sherbert, and a warm chocolate "Yu" tart that combines the flavor of bittersweet dark chocolate ganache with stewed apples and yuzu.
The three new desserts will be available to international first-class patrons in June and to business class travelers beginning in September.
But if you, like me, are more of the "Paying $1,000 to fly coach is already more than I can afford" persuasion, fear not - you've still got a chance to try out the three amazing desserts, if you've got a hankering and you're already in Tokyo.
All three will be available for a limited period of time at Pierre Hermé's flagship Japan store, Bar Chocolat in Aoyama.
