"Otaru Western Confectionery LeTAO" is famous for "Double Fromage". I would like to introduce the sweet "Lucotta" made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the brand, which is also very delicious.
What is Lucotta?Unlike "Double Fromage", which uses Italian mascarpone cheese, this cheesecake allows you to enjoy traditional Italian ricotta cheese. "Lucotta", which was completed by repeating trial production, is said to have been named with the meaning of "elaborate" by multiplying "LeTAO" and "ricotta cheese". The purchase price at the online shop is 1,944 yen (tax included, shipping not included).
It arrives by frozen delivery, so it takes about 5 to 8 hours to thaw it in the refrigerator before eating. The diameter is about 11 cm, so it's best to cut it and share it with 3 to 4 people.
Sandwich cream with ricotta cheese and custard cream alternately with omlet dough. I've noticed it since I put the knife in, but it's fluffy anyway. The soft omlet dough and the smooth cream are united and delicately disappear. It is wonderful that even if you put many layers of dough in your mouth, it will not spoil the fragility.
The taste is also light. A perfect balance of fresh flavored cream with ricotta cheese and rich custard cream. It has a refreshing sweetness without the dull aftertaste that is often felt in cheese sweets. I mentioned earlier that 3-4 people would share it, but it seems that even one person will eat about half of it. It is delicious that is loved by children and adults alike.
Cheesecake "Lucotta" that makes full use of the goodness of ricotta cheese. There is no doubt that you will smile involuntarily with a fluffy and gentle mouthfeel.
