"Top Chef" winner Stephanie Izard is a soup genius; this is yet another recipe I could not lose. Her description: Ever since I worked for Shawn McClain at Spring restaurant in Chicago, I have loved fennel. Shawn used it a lot more than other chefs I had worked for and I could see why. It has a beautiful, soft and subtle anise flavor that really shines in this soup. The richness of the lobster and the tart orange really bring it all together.
