Chestnut soup with caramelised onions, dill cream and pickled chestnuts. A dish that takes you…
Fluffy vanilla bean waffles kissed with cinnamon and fresh nutmeg, topped with fresh berries and too much (does such a thing exist?) maple syrup!
This is a perfect recipe for both warmer and cooler weather, a perfect combination of warm waffles with cool fresh berries.
Tip: for making your waffles into the shape pictured here, use a square waffle maker and spoon mixture carefully into the moulds, ensuring not too much, so when settled, the batter doesn’t squish into the sides.
This might take a few goes to get right, but is super easy once you get the hang of it.
