Hot and Good are the Chestnuts

With autumn arrived the appreciated nuts.

The smell overruns the streets of downtown, their time has come, they are good roasted and hot … we are speaking, of course, about Chestnuts! No one resists the nut that symbolizes autumn. Chestnut has an ancient tradition in Portuguese gastronomy and has often replaced potatoes and bread at times of scarcity, giving rise to a huge variety of dishes in traditional cuisine. They can therefore be cooked in different ways but there is no doubt … Chestnuts are delicious roasted. Wrapped in paper cartridges, bought from street vendors, chestnuts are the perfect companion at the end of a work day, a leisurely lunchtime or a city tour. They line up at “Praça 8 de Maio”, in downtown Coimbra. And if you have the opportunity, be sure to accompany a meal of Chestnuts with a glass of “Jeropiga”, the perfect match.”
