I’m wrapped up warm and hunting for sweet chestnuts with the kids in the little woodland next to my house. We always get loads around this time of year and we love to pick them and then make a bonfire toroast them on.
Chestnuts are a big ingredient in Italian cookery, much more so than they are here. In fact, chestnut cake is one of the traditional cakes we bake for Christmas and it is made using chestnut flour.
