Truth be told, we’ve never been big fans of chestnuts. The taste is sweet and nutty…but the pastiness always puts us off.
That is until Restaurant Guy Savoy laid this puppy on us last month. Fresh, glazed nuts (insert joke here), with sliced porcini ‘shrooms floating in a bath of chestnut “milk” brings out all the flavor whilst tempering some of the graininess of the nut itself.
In all, it is the apotheosis of nut-dom, perfect for the season, and guaranteed to put you in the holiday mood.
It helps to be in the “giving” spirit, however (either to yourself or that special someone), as a bowl of all this nutty, earth-yet-light richness, comes to $60 in the Bites and Bubbles Lounge.
Just thought you’d like to know.
