Sunday, October 9, we had ourselves a good old fashion chestnut festival. This was held up in Schloss Tirol where many tourists came to eat chestnuts and watch Megan, Tomer, Nik, and I roast some chestnuts.
It was really fun. We ended up roasting 188 kilos of nuts altogether, which is about 415 lbs. Roasting the chestnuts is a true art. If left on the fire too long without shaking, they become burnt. If they are taken away from the fire and put back on, they explode. We had an average of about four chestnuts per pan explode on us while roasting, which was mostly caused by Tomer, Megan, and me because Nik actually knew what he was doing. All in all, it was fun and we had a blast throughout the whole day.Chuck Solan
