New to Chestnuts...What to do with them?

Paula76 | | Dec 21, 2008 03:34 AM

Hi there. As I am originally from Argentina where Christmas is a 40-degree affair full of cold salads and not much in the way of 'traditional' foods, chestnuts do not exist over there (as far as I know...maybe in southern Patagonia but they are certainly not widespread). I have been living in the UK for a few years and I think I tried them once and liked them. However, I have never attempted to cook with them but as I have become increasingly obsessed about food and cooking in the last couple of years and I am in charge of making the starter and dessert for Xmas day, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to how to incorporate chestnuts in the meal, how best to cook them, etc...All tips will be much appreciated!

Thanks!
