Last weekend, it was unseasonably warm here and I wanted to make something summery for dinner. I decided on this chilled crab bisque and was excited to give it a try.
I like to play with recipes but I usually follow them closely on the first pass and did so with this one. Bummer. It called for more cayenne than I would have liked, I think maybe the idea was to give it some kick to contrast the chilled soup, but it didn't work so well. I'll have to make it again following my intuition. I've always enjoyed chilled soups at restaurants but haven't been able to pull them off well on my own. Any tried and true recipes out there?
