Summer a thing of the past, the weather has cooled, and the chestnuts are roasting away in the plazas. This recipe couldn’t be easier. It is simple with deep roasted, nutty flavours to tender root vegetables. This dish celebrates our love of seasonal nuts made into the most velvety, smooth oil which brings together the culmination of seasonal vegetables with nuts.
