Fall Picnic: Hearty chestnut cake with cornichons

I love fall! I like to dress in layers, colourful and warm, and I enjoy coming home after a walk and eat a warm soup or stew, drink a cup of delicious tea and ponder on the recipes I could try with this bounty of fresh vegetables available at the end of summer.

Indian summer. The sun wakes me this morning. I wander around the kitchen finding out, what I could cook - considering harvest time. Plums, pears, grapes, figs? As I dig through the cupboard in the kitchen my plotting continues. Chestnuts. Chestnut flour, that’s perfect for a cake with pears or figs! Or better something hearty for a picnic in the sun? That’s it. Just take your picnic basket, fill it with reassuringly hearty  snacks for a cosy SUNday walk.
