Has anyone made Celery Root-Chestnut Soup?

Cooking longer might have helped. I did do the blender thing, but no luck. Well, we'll see how it tastes!

Thanks for that. I did a lot of squishing but still a great deal of stuff remained behind. I'm curious what result Boulud really wanted. Because he does mention that there should be about 2 quarts of soup, which is the amount of chicken broth you start with, exclusive of all the other ingredients.

I'm a bit perplexed by one aspect of the recipe: the instruction to put it through a fine-mesh strainer. I did this and ended up straining out a lot of the solids, leaving me with a soup that's much thinner than I expected. Was this your experience?
