Chestnut Crepes with Walnuts & Cheddar

Chestnut flour is a hallmark of Tuscany’s culinary heritage. The nutrient-rich chestnut wrapped in it’s spiky jacket has been a dietary staple since medieval times. Naturally sweet, the flour lends itself as an excellent base for pancakes. Called Necci in Italian, chestnut flour crepes pair excellently with sharp cheddar and toasted walnuts for a decadent, flavorful breakfast or alongside a crisp salad or bowl of soup.
