These Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts and Pancetta take only 15 minutes to cook, making it the perfect side dish! Recipe with step-by-step photos.
For me, Brussels sprouts is an essential side dish at Christmas. It happens to be an ingredient which is abundantly in season from about autumn and well into the late winter, and I try to cook with it often during this time of the year, although it really does become the star of the show at Christmas.

As soon as the weather in Switzerland starts to take a dip, the roasted chestnut carts magically appear and I know that my favourite dessert will soon be in all of the pâtisserie shops.
Roasted chestnuts alone are a gorgeous treat, especially since they also perform a double function as lovely hand warmers, but one of my favourite ways of enjoying chestnuts is in a simple Mont Blanc dessert.

It has been a few months since I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and cook with Mimi Thorisson in her home in south-western France. I find myself frequently reminiscing about the recipes we cooked, what we chatted about while we were sitting at her vast dining table, and the recipe notes which I exchanged with the other ladies in the workshop. I think often of her impossibly beautiful children with their impeccable politeness, not to mention their envious appetite for everything their mother would put before them.

Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas celebration with your friends, family and loved ones.
Christmas in our home today started with a leisurely breakfast … until the children realised that they could open their Christmas stockings once they had finished their meal. I had never seen them chomp down their toast and scull their milk so quickly!
As soon as the street vendors start setting up their chestnut-roasting stations in Zurich, I know that Christmas is around the corner. I adore these roasted beauties, their sweet and fluffy interior making for the perfect street snack when you need something warm and filling. Sometimes when the air is bitingly cold, a little bag of roasted chestnuts is the perfect excuse to warm your hands while you are waiting for your tram.
