Johanna, they are gorgeous!

I love chestnuts; I don't care what you do to them...Matt's a bit 'eh' about them, but the chorizo would most likely win him over!

And they would have been perfect for last night's Blog Party as well...


LOL! I do see the resemblance with Ramsay's forehead. ;-)I can imagine holding those warm chestnuts on a cold day and later eating them. Love your photo.



This is stunning. Art.


Lovely pic... makes me wanna grab some and run away.. lol!


Ji Johanna,
I made these for a new years day hangover brunch and they tasted great, gone in 5 minutes! My only problem was keeping the chestnuts on the skewers, as they kept on cracking and falling off. I had to make them a couple of hours ahead, I guess drying out was the problem...


ok.. 3 years later (nearly)and i have made this today. I read your blog and love it (My husband is Viennese (i love the Austrian bits!) and we live in Canada)... anyway- i just made this tapas for a party tonight and they are FABULOUS! I used hot Genoa salami, super spiced(balsamic-y) sun-dried tomatoes and put them on a tray with knotted bamboo skewers ! THANKYOU! SO GREAT!
