Thanks Philippa, for the great recipe. Do you have a go-to chestnut recipe or family tradition? I’d love suggestions on different ways to enjoy this wonderful nut. Let me know in the comments below.
Are you an X or a _ person when it comes to scoring and roasting chestnuts? I discussed this and all things chestnuts on ABC Afternoons with Clare Bowditch. Listen here.
And if you’re looking for another delicious risotto recipe, try my Low and Slow Asparagus Risotto.
If you love chestnuts as much as I do why not try these delicious recipes:
- Chestnut Butter (or with a little dark chocolate this easily becomes chestnutella),
- Necci, two ingredient chestnut pancakes with instant pear bircher muesli,
Or this beautiful recipe for Pork Cutlets with Chestnut and Apple Hash I cooked up with Simon Arkless, head chef of Terrace Restaurant at beautiful All Saints Estate.
