Chestnuts are another one of those foods that represent fall to me. Bonnie Benwick featured them in her Dinner in 35 Minutes recipe this week, Chestnut, Rice and Pancetta Soup.
• Chestnut Puree, a condiment that you might find room for on your Thanksgiving table.
• Chestnut-Maple Cheesecake, a dessert that freezes well for whenever you have some surprise company.
• Roasted Chestnuts, to simply enjoy them in an unadulterated form.
• Savoyard Chestnuts and Apples, a French-inspired side dish.
