    Cook's tips

    To cook fresh chestnuts, cut a slit in the skin, cook in boiling water for 10 minutes, then peel while hot. This dish could be served as a vegetable accompaniment to roasted meat.

    Drinks recommendation

    A fruity red wine with oak flavours will match this winter warmer.
