I served this at our dinner party for 50. I thought it was good and would make it again, but it wasn't a smash hit with the crowd. In fact, I had more green beans left over than any of the other 4 sides. This recipe is definitely best fresh - microwaved leftovers are almost entirely devoid of flavor.
Based upon the other reviews, not quite as fantastic as I expected it to be. I followed the recipe with the exception of adding a few more hazelnuts. Definitely worth making again, but I didn't think it was "knock your socks off" good.
