I got a pet Italian grocery store in Burbank,  they have all the stuff 
you normally need to go to NYC to find.  My Brooklynese father loves 
this place, it's the "taste of home" he's been looking for all these years.

Chinese markets should have chestnuts this time of year too.  On the 
other hand, any excuse is a good excuse for an excursion to Somis!  Well 
"nuts to you" my dear, hope you found treasures.
