FLOR Pâtisserie is a Japanese-styled patisserie serving authentic Japanese-inspired French pastry. ‘FLOR’ is a Portuguese word for flower, and is pronounced in Japanese as ‘fu-ro-ru’. Flor’s confections feature largely fresh fruits, and are lighter in flavour than conventional French pastries.
Other than using traditional Japanese techniques, Flor Patisserie also do not use baking powder, artificial rising/softening agents, stabilisers, or preservatives in their products. The soft yet moist quality of their cakes is achieved from the natural aeration of eggs being whipped to their full peak, the careful emulsification of melted butter through the expert folding action of the chefs’ hands, and the precise timing and temperature of baking in the oven.
