My name is Esther, the food nut and book rat behind chocolat et marrons grillés. Why that name? Well… those two things are the things that bring the fondest and warmest childhood memories… Hot chocolate after a school day, either hot, or simply chocolate pieces nestled between two slices of crispy french baguette. The smell and warmth of roasted chestnuts held on my lap, wrapped in a kitchen towell, enjoyed after long winter hours playing in the snow… Priceless childhood memories, nostalgia that food can bring. That’s what chocolat et marrons grillés is all about…

I was born and raised in the Spanish side of the Basque Country where food is a way of living. Now I live in Upstate New York, in the small hamlet of Holmes with my lovely husband Eduardo and 5 year old son Alex, and let’s not forget about our chickens and guinea pigs.

Hope you enjoy what you find here, food, life style and photography… Please join me!
