Cream Of Chestnut and Whiskey Tart – Ardeche Recipes
Chestnuts are different from other nuts in that they are low in fat and have high starch content which means they are a perfect way to recharge after a days ride and this recipe for a simple chestnut tart went down a treat with my brother and sister and good friend Alphonso who had had just home in from a tough JOGLE 2010.

- 1 X 500 g tin chestnut puree

6. Decorate with a little cacoa powder dusted from a sive and serve warm with whipped cream or a good scoop of vanilla ice cream.
