Serve with my flatbread.
There is an absolutely fabulous Italian grocery store in the concourse of the Food Network building in Chelsea , New York. They carry a lovey range of imported dry goods, canned goods, cheeses, olive oils, balsamic vinegars chocolates and candies! Whenever we are in New York City I stock up! My best find has been dehydrated chestnuts! I’m sure we have something similar in Toronto, but it’s so much more romantic going all the way to Chelsea for my chestnuts! As an added bonus, there is a fantastic kitchen wares store in the same concourse…I’ve picked up a few lovely souvenirs there!
If you are using dehydrated chestnuts, then you will need to do this few days in advance (about 5 days). Soak the chesnuts in water until they are fully hydrated.
