Roasted chestnuts or ‘castañas asadas’ is a popular street food in Spain during the Winter. This was a street stall at the Gran Vía in Madrid. These people were happy for me to take some photos and of course I bought some roasted chestnuts! Living in Dublin I had been missing them…

    Love this shot, great tomes and subject matter. In New York City ( my home town) they sell these as well in the winter. Many a time I purchased a bag of these warm fellows just to warm my hands waiting for the bus. Oh they tasted great as well.

  • thank you Richard, I enjoyed those chestnuts so much, it’s a very old tradition in Madrid
