This week our recipe for French Fridays is Pear and Chestnut soup. A great pick for this time of year. The allure of a bowl of velvety chestnut soup, topped with some heavy cream, is hard to resist. I’m sure not everyone met this challenge with the same anticipation, i.e. my husband who asked, what I was making? Then gave me his look. You must know the look, every husband has one! The look that said “I don’t think so”. I knew right away that this was going to be my soup!

This post participates with French Fridays with Dorie. To see what other Doristas are doing check it out here. The recipe can be found in Dorie’s cookbook, “Around My French Table”. I could’nt find this exact recipe on-line, however Dorie posted another Chestnut soup on her blog. There is also a half a recipe of the Chestnut-Pear soup here.
