* Chop the celery

* Put the cooked chestnuts in a pan au bain marie, and cook it for 5 minutes so the chestnuts are heated. take out of plastic wrapper. I used the brand: Allaire certified by AB ( Agriculture Biologique). You can also cook chestnuts yourself but I though this was easier ;)

Chestnuts really remind us of winter. They are delicious cooked and contain no cholesterol , no gluten and little fat, even less calories than  other nuts like almonds and walnuts. it is also the only nut that contains Vit C! (from wikipedia).

* Boil the water in a pan, with the 2 bouillon cubes. add the celeriac,the shallots and the celery. turn heat low when boiling.
