Bernd Siefert
Von Michelstadt nach Japan

ベアンド ・ ジーフェルト

Michelstadt is very close to my birthplace in Germany.

Today I saw a program on TV about Bernd Siefert working in Tokyo for the
International World Cake Fair in Yokohama. He also teaches how to make desert to Japanese customers.

He made something like a Schwarzwzalder Kirschtorte with matcha green tea and azuki red beans.
