kuri gohan {chestnut rice)

Breakfast, kuri gohan.
We cook rice with chestnut. Chestnut is autumn fruit in Japan, we usually have it in September, October. We make sweets, some dishes with it, and what I miss most is mont blanc: a cake using marron glace and cream. Once I tried to make it here using the French puree but it didn't taste the same. This is one of the things I miss a lot in Japan.

Thank you very much to everyone who made it to our Open Studio and the Advent fair at Steiner school. It was lovely to see you again!
