No. 60: Châtaignes grillées on an open fire…….


It’s chestnut time of the year in France, and I love roasted chestnuts. In French they are called both châtaignes and marrons…I haven’t figured out the difference between them, or when to use which word. Most signs around Paris say “marrons chauds”, but a French chef friend of mine always says “châtiaignes”. Which ever it is, they are all over town these days…at the top of every metro stop, by all the major tourist attractions, and even on the bridges.

At 1-2€ for a newspaper cone filled to the brim, it’s the perfect healthy snack for a cold day.
