Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F.

2.

Cut the chestnut shells and bake in the preheated oven until the shell is cracked and the chestnuts are tender (about 30 minutes). Remove from the oven, let cool and peel.

3.

Peel and chop the shallots, celery, parsnip, and garlic. Saute in hot butter for 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Add the chestnuts and saute briefly. Deglaze with the broth and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove approximately 1/3 of the chestnuts from the soup and puree the remaining soup.

Replace the chestnuts and stir in the creme fraiche, cognac, and heavy cream. Bring to a boil. If the soup is too thick, add extra broth. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Serve sprinkled with pistachios.
