  • About

Itinerant chestnut vendors filled the streets of Taipei in winter, animating the alleyways with their calls and the sweet, dusky perfume of roasting chestnuts, stirring in me memories of Fifth Avenue and the winters of my childhood. While Chinese, like New Yorkers, love munching them plain, a good many chestnuts find their way into poultry stews such as this one. Warming, satisfying, and seductively hinting of wine, it is a lovely dish at any time of year.
