Knock-out nut roast

We're having a vegetarian Christmas. I love a good nut roast. There's only going to be three of us, and no one to freak out over vegetarian clichés. So I'm looking for a scene stealing nut roast recipe to be the main attraction.

I want layers, I want colours, I want fancy garnishes and flavour explosions. I want to take all those 1970's vegetarian cook books and laugh in their smug, wholesome faces.
I don't want dry stuffing in a loaf tin.
I don't care if it needs a couple of days to prepare. I'm going back to the shire next weekend and there will be very little to do apart from cooking and eating.
My mum would like it to involve chestnuts as she's got a box of them in the cupboard.
The rest of the meal will be all typical British Christmas lunch trimmings, two types of spuds, roast parsnips, Yorkshires, sprouts, boiled carrots, two types of cabbage, peas, bread sauce, stuffing, and gravy, so much gravy.
No celery (yuk!), no hazelnuts (I like breathing). But I am not afraid of substitutions if your favourite recipe fails on those criteria.
So tell me your knock-out nut roast recipes!
