Arome Bakery 東海堂 - The Chestnut Season

Among all the commercial chain bakeries, I always go for Arome as my top preference. I especially love their Uji Matcha series and have enjoyed so much with their sponge rolls. This season, they come up with chestnut variations in their typical ways of tart, dessert cup and cake rolls.
My favourite would be this buttery tart filled with muscovado sponge, swirled with a creamy mont blanc-like chestnut cream and topped with a slightly syrupy chestnut. 
The dessert cup with Azuki bean, muscovado jelly and golden chestnuts is surprisingly filled with an aromatic houjicha panna cotta, it is an exciting combination with the chestnut puree.
Finally, the soft and spongy cake roll never fails to impress me. It is also added with muscovado and filled with a smooth Hokkaido milk based cream, plus some contrasting bites of chestnut.
In addition, the Japanese peach tart is so fresh and sweetly pairs with their signature Hokkaido cream, a layer of peach jelly and flaky pastry tart.
