SEASONAL FOOD OF THE WEEK

Chestnuts

Chestnuts

Our Top Three Chestnut Experiences:

  1. Nibbling still crunchy, pleasantly bitter chestnuts picked from the ground during a wander in the park.

  2. Following our nose to a stand on a London street (wet with rain and reflecting streetlamps like oil) and warming our fingers on a small (much smaller than last year) paper bag of roast chestnuts.

  3. Tucking into special, rarely made treats like Chestnut and Chocolate Cake (see recipes).
