Two festive sides with marrons

Christmas before the Christ was the story of the longest night on Earth, grilling marrons in the fireplace. Just what we need in this cold. This colorful braised veggie dish…

… and nutty, baked chestnut croquettes.

This perfectly cooked crunchy red cabbage are a traditional Alsatian recipe, with apple, red wine and lots of time (see here).

Baked and coated in a sesame “dust”.
