Editors Note: Mikado sticks are a favorite Japanese kids treat. Today, we are fortunate to have Sharon Heinrich, a food blogger from Paris talk about how she made these sticks at home. Sharon’s Instagram account was recently named by Food Republic as one of the 10 pages you should follow in French culinary.
My name is Sharon Heinrich. I am 37 years old and I have been living in Paris for 5 years now. I am a researcher in the field of Pastry & Chocolate. I always enjoyed making cakes and desserts for my colleagues and with time I turned this into my main profession. After moving to Paris, I started my blog that is dedicated to Paris, Confectionery and everything between them. Working on my blog enabled me to meet some of the best Pastry Chefs & Chocolateris in Paris and some amazing and delicious delis in the city.
I am happy to share my knowledge in this tasty field with you. As a pastry chef by training and as a researcher in the culinary field, specializing in Paris´ Patisserie & Chocolaterie, I can say that this field is my home field :). The variety is huge and you should know where to go: where can you taste the best Macaron? Where to eat a quality Croissant? Where to get the best Mille-Feuilles cake in Paris? Where to drink the unforgettable hot chocolate? And where to eat BONBONS of chocolate which are sold like jewelry? On my tour I´m happy to share my knowledge with others!
About this Mikado recipe:
When i visit my family i always bring some goodies from Paris. One of the things that my nephew and niece will always get from me is the MIKADO. The original mikado – POCKY- was created in Japan and it consists of chocolate-coated biscuit sticks. It was named after the Japanese onomatopoetic word pokkin. As the children adore this treat, I decided to create homemade MIKADO!
