Chestnuts make an ideal winter snack for any event. A traditional food that has been popular in the U.K. since around the time of Dickens, though worldwide there is evidence of chestnuts being cooked as far back as 2000B.C. The aroma of freshly roasting chestnuts drifts around the room, taking people back to their childhood's. Add mulled wine to one of our chestnut carts and you have a great offering for a drinks reception, or pre meal treat.
Chestnuts (Latin name Castanea mollissima) are very similar to conkers, but are no relation, (please don’t eat conkers, they tend to be poisonous).
Having been cultivated since before 2000BC, chestnuts are a staple food in many parts of Europe and Asia, they prove so versatile, that bread and wine production from the nut is possible.
In harsh winters, communities have managed to subsist on these edible nuts alone. A Greek army was said to have survived a retreat from Asia Minor in 401BC due to their store of chestnuts.
