Chef Bill-I am Chef #718230's friend who hosted the dinner party and served your soup in bread bowls (homemade from scratch of course)--I totally agree it was AMAZING! I used a blend of snow and king crab that I shelled myself to add to the quality of this dish. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was, and relatively easy to make, especially if I had used imitation or canned. Thank you!

This is DELICIOUS Uncle Bill! I'm gonna blame you if I get fat, as this is truly irresistible.

Crab and corn is my favorite combination, and I've been looking for the perfect soup recipe.
This was it! Creamy, filling, and delicious. I added Cajun seasoning for the spices for a little kick. Fresh corn is a must, though I did use canned lump crab. I'll be enjoying the leftovers soon. Thank you for a great recipe!
