A Christmas season staple, this soup makes a comfortable, warming lunch of dinner all winter long.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, add the onion, celery and carrot and fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until the vegetables have softened but not coloured.

Add the apples, chestnuts and hot stock and then simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the apples and chestnuts are tender.

Leave to cool slightly before blending in a blender until smooth.

Divide between 4 bowls and swirl with a little cream and a sprinkling of chopped chives before serving.
