I have never tried the chestnut paste but it does sound wonderful. I
have read that chestnuts are the only nut that are very low in fat, I
too was surprised.
I'm going to Rome and Florence this Summer. Although it is extremely
easy to eat ff there I would like to visit a couple of vegetarian
restaurants. I have been to Marguta (sp) in Rome which is absolutely
fantastic. Anyone know of others in Rome, Florence, Sienna. Like I
said the food everywhere is wonderful and very easy to eat vegan but its
always nice to go to specific vegetarian restaurants as well. I am
absolutely thrilled to be able to go back. Italy is my dream come true.
