Located high up a narrow valley along a seldom traveled road in Nijo-mitsuyoshi, Nobuko Itabashi has been baking homemade pies and cakes for sixteen years. Using recipes adopted and modified from time spent in America and Australia, she does every step by hand and using only trusted seasonal ingredients. It’s like grandma’s baking, assuming your grandmother was an extremely talented baker! Not at all interested in expanding business, her goods are not available in shops or online. Instead she ships them frozen to individuals by courier or they can be picked up in the morning by reservation. Her repertoire includes over a dozen pies and tarts from a classic Apple Tart (pictured here) to Caramel Nuts Tart, Espresso Chocolate Tart, Italian Pear Tart and more. Can’t decide? Relax, she offers a mixed box with eight or twelve kinds of pie included. Then, there are her cakes!
