As a popular autumnal seasonal ingredient, chestnuts or kuri in Japanese are used in all sorts of sweet and savory dishes like kuri gohan (chestnut rice) or kuri manju (chestnut steamed buns). Generally, when used as an ingredient for desserts, they are referred to as marron which means brown or chestnut in French.
Autumn is still two months away, but Kagetsudo Co Ltd has released its new line of Marron Pound Cakes for a limited time. Using a combination of two types of chestnut pastes (toasted and steamed), you’ll be able to taste the natural sweetness of Japanese chestnuts.
The pound cakes are sold in packs of nine priced at ¥378 or individually at ¥108.
