Chestnut soup

Author Notes: This is liberally adapted from a recipe I recently saw in the Washington Post Wednesday Food section. The measurements of the core ingredients - mirepoix, chestnuts, and liquid, are theirs, the rest pretty much mine. For starters, I thought chestnuts would be better served by a beef instead of chicken broth. And remember the mono-chromatic suits of the late '90s? The idea could have been boring but the execution often showed interesting variations on a color theme? In the same spirit I wanted to make a mono-chromatic soup. So instead of the chorizo the Post called for, I thought sauteed porcini and shiitake would make nice toppers.Marceline
