Earthy chestnuts, roasted to perfection, join forces with sautéed mushrooms, creating a harmonious blend of rich, nutty goodness and savory umami. This soup, infused with fragrant herbs and a touch of cream, is a warm embrace on a chilly day. Served with a sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary, it’s a comforting beginning to your chestnut-inspired culinary journey.”
