  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 6 cup chopped Celery
  • 1 lb Celeriac
  • 2 pear, medium (approx 2-1/2 per lb) Pears
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice Ground
  • 3 tsp Thyme
  • 29/48 each Bay Leaf
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 6 oz Camembert Cheese


  1. Melt butter over medium high heat in a 4-quart stock pot.  Add the coarsely chopped yellow onion, celery, celery root, pears and salt; sauté for 5 minutes until onions have softened.  
  2. Add the chicken broth, allspice, thyme sprigs, and bay leaves.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the celery root is tender.  Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaves.  Puree in a food processor or blender in batches and return to the pot over medium heat.  Add in the cream and heat until hot. 
  3. Serve with 1 oz sliced Camembert per serving and garnish with fresh chopped pear (optional).  Once served the cheese should be mixed into the bisque to melt.  Makes about 8 cups; 1 serving is about 1 1/3 cups.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
