The chestnut is a universal fruit. It can be used as either the main ingredient in, or as a substitute component to, practically anything edible – just like bread. Here, you can find a number of recipes for making appetizers and soups by using chestnuts either as primary ingredients or as indispensable elements, which provide meals with the kind of peculiar flavor that makes the modification of tried-out, old recipes worthwhile. Keep experimenting – it is worth taking the risk! Bon appétit!
