Marron = Kuri = Chestnut



I`ve heard two different words for chestnut here including marron (which is French) and Kuri (which is Japanese). It was very difficult to explain the word in English especially since it starts with a body part.

Chestnut Okowa, which is basically sticky rice with vegetables and chestnuts. Next to the vegetables with sesame seeds we have grilled egg with scallops (cooked inside). Very interesting. And for dessert, grape jell-o.
