In the olden days, after the usual family supper chestnuts were roasted in the open hearth. “Panellets" (small, tasty almond cakes) and other sweet small cakes were eaten, and accompanied by a sweet, white wine. The chestnuts were roasted and placed on a table where everyone could eat as many as they wanted.

To renew and remember this tradition, nowadays in many schools in Spain children are invited to taste the typical roasted chesnuts, almonds and sweet potatoes as well as the cakes made with these products. Sometimes, the teachers who deliver them are disguised as “villagers”.
