I’ve loved chestnuts ever since I tasted them at the Kortright Centre for Conservation in Woodbridge, Ontario. I was five years old, and my dad’s company was having their annual Christmas party there. Our tour guide took us outside into the snow, and roasted a handful of chestnuts over a camp fire. Once they were done roasting, everyone in the group had the opportunity to taste them. I was handed a warm golden nugget, that had been dipped into hot salty butter.
I remember being fascinated by the smell and taste of the chestnuts. They were sweet, nutty and unlike anything else I had ever eaten before. Now I looked forward to enjoying those flavours every winter.
