This indulgent chestnut cream spread is made according to a recipe that dates back from 1885 and from chestnuts harvested in Ardèche, a region in France whose chestnuts are so famous that their regional authenticity is protected by the AOC. It's delicious with yogurt, pudding, cake, and ice cream--or straight from the can.
Word from the Expert
I use this chestnut cr̬me in my Mont Blanc pastry recipe because it has the most luxurious and authentic chestnut taste. -Christophe Schmitt, curator of the France Box
