300g boiled chestnuts

300g milk

Half a shallot

Cook the chestnuts already boiled in milk for 10 ', add the saffron and melt. Set aside 8 boiled chestnuts and blend the rest to obtain a nice cream that you will use for the sauce, if necessary add a little more milk. In a separate pan, brown the finely chopped shallot and the diced bacon. Add the chestnut cream.
