Gingerbread and chestnuts

Recipe: gingerbread and chestnuts

Gingerbread recipe for the end of year celebrations, to pair with foie gras, with Roquefort for a more daring union. I used chestnut flour, to change the taste and color. With gingerbread spices you can go as you wish, use the spices you like, test the taste, gingerbread is the discovery of mixed tastes and smells, you can consume it with sweetness as with salty, no ban for gingerbread, it can be kept for several weeks.
