※Miyawaki chef patissier comment
This time, I used chestnuts from Kasama City, Ibaraki Prefecture for the first time, and was surprised at the high quality. Compared to the chestnuts that I have used so far, the chestnuts have uniform grains, no damage, and a high yield. I think it is the best ingredient for pastry chefs who use a large amount of chestnuts every season. This time, I used “Tanzawa” and “Tsukuba”, but I definitely want to try other varieties.
