Celebrate the use and taste of chestnuts

CHESTNUT Celebrations annually take place at one of the smallest towns in Slovakia, Modrý Kameň, in the south-central district of Veľký Krtíš. This year's festivities will be held on October 11.
"Chestnuts, warm, baked, aromatic... are as much a part of the town of Modrý Kameň as its castle is," said Edita Debnárová from Nový Pokrok, the region's weekly.

CHESTNUT Celebrations annually take place at one of the smallest towns in Slovakia, Modrý Kameň, in the south-central district of Veľký Krtíš. This year's festivities will be held on October 11.

"Chestnuts, warm, baked, aromatic... are as much a part of the town of Modrý Kameň as its castle is," said Edita Debnárová from Nový Pokrok, the region's weekly.

The chestnuts will be presented in several ways: baked or raw, assembled into various constructions and figures, used as ingredients in cakes and pastries, or still as a part of small trees. The event, taking place at the town's Lipové Square, will be enriched by a cultural programme and accompanied by a traditional crafts market.
