"Adapted from Best of the Best of Georgia. A recipe supposedly from Elizabeth of 37th restaurant. A nice way to serve this is in hollowed out individual bread rounds as bowls."

    This is really good, though admittedly I did make a loose version that was tweaked. I minced white onion, carrot and red bell pepper since I was out of celery and green onions, and I added garlic powder. I DID NOT use a food processor; I just left the vegetables as they were and it was very nice tasting their individual flavors and textures. Some reviewers said it was bland; I actually used a lot more vegetable than required for the flavor and aromatics. I didn't even add any sherry and it was still wonderfully flavored and balanced. For the chicken broth I used a bouillon cube and water. Nice velvety mouthfeel with good flavor; especially good with parsley and black pepper right before serving. Very picturesque and elegant, looks like it took a lot of precise work but I just threw it together. Easy and fast.

    What a workout! But worth it in the end! Thanks to those who reviewed before me, I did assemble my ingredients prior to starting and it made it a lot easier. I also added extra carrots, and about one teaspoon of minced garlic (I love the stuff). I also used fresh chicken stock, it didn't need extra salt but I added a good dose of Old Bay for an extra kick. Super yummy!

    This was an amazing dish! Very big hit with the family and friends. The only things I changed were to put more carrots in it for more color and I used regular chicken broth and butter instead of unsalted because it was a little bland the first time I made it. Definitely going in my recipe box!

    Good bisque. I made it just as directed, and it did not come close to feeding 12 people. More like 5-6 servings for medium eaters. No one was really 'blown away' by it, but it was quite good. I used king crab that I cooked myself. Thanks!
