Chestnut, the most nutritious autumn nut

After a walk in the mountainous parts of our land, where many chestnut trees grow and villages are named after them, it’s time to indulge in our favorite autumn nut.

One can add them in a cake, whereas their cream can be the basis of delicious sweets of all kind. We like them both roasted and boiled, accompanied with couverture or any chocolate cream. A perfect companion for the cold autumn and winter afternoons.

Chestnuts are a superfood. They are full of nutritious ingredients that boost our body. Let’s find out more about them!
