Canlis, Seattle, Washington. Bisques are creamy, rich soups based on a flavorful puree. The foundation of this one is a generous amount of fall's wild mushrooms, one of the more prized culinary treats each year in the Northwest. At Canlis, the chefs often use chanterelles, hedgehog mushrooms, or morels when they're in season, though the bisque is also delicious made with cultivated varieties such as shiitake mushrooms. The flavor and texture of the bisque will vary with the type (or types) you choose to use. It's made extra-rich with heavy cream at the restaurant, but you could lighten the bisque a touch by using half-and-half instead. Source: The Best Northwest Places Cookbook (Volume 2), Cynthia C.
