this can easily be dressed up with a puff pastry top, but is nice ganished with chives

Top Review by Lorac

Excellent! We had this tonight for a simple Sunday night supper. The brandy adds a richness and flavor that make this bisque superb. I made the recipe as directed using a combination of white and "baby bella" mushrooms. I reserved 1/4 pound of the sliced mushrooms which I added with the cream and topped each serving with a garnish of fresh chopped chives. Thanks chia, I have added this to my book of "Magic Tricks".
