Tasting

    1) Why Turin?

    The chestnuts from Turin are less starchy and possess a more pronounced chestnut flavour. The chestnut of Turin has a slightly elongated shape, and when it is cracked in two, a drop of syrup will appear.



    2) How does one make a glazed chestnut?

    - After peeling, the chestnuts are cooked in water at less than 100°C for several hours.

    - Then the fruit is confit in a bath with 60 to 75% sugar, glucose and vanilla. The operation lasts several days, in baths more and more concentrated.

    - Finally, the chestnut is glazed with a thin layer of sugar, so as not to invade the mouth of sugar and let the flavors of chestnut develop.

    - The chestnut of Turin has a slightly elongated shape, and especially when it breaks in two, we see a drop of syrup appear.

Craftsmanship and the art of candying

Our glazed chestnuts are grown in Turin, renowned for its excellent chestnut groves. We choose chestnuts which weigh roughly 22g: this size is considered to be ideal to create an intensely flavored sweet treat. La Maison du Chocolat is inspired by traditional methods when creating its glazed chestnuts. The chestnuts' natural water must be replaced with a syrup: the nuts are immersed in successive syrup baths, infused with vanilla beans, and the concentration of syrup is gradually increased. Glazed at the very end of the process, these glazed chestnuts retain their natural flavors and are covered in a thin coating of candied icing sugar.
