 NOTES : If you have never roasted chestnuts, take a lesson from the street vend
 ors of Paris and New York, who know that crowds will gather whenever the vendor
 s begin to sell their wares.  Toasted over an open fire, chestnuts are absolute
 ly delicious.  In the kitchen, you'll be pleased with the way their sweet nutty
  flavor enhances a menu.
