curried carrot bisque

4 80

This recipe was submitted by the seductress Virginia of NYC.

This recipe was given to me by the chef of the Kitchen Witch–one of the finest restaurants located in Greenwich Village in the early ’80’s, which sadly enough has since closed. It was one of our favorite choices on the menu. I was very fortunate to have seduced the chef Stanley with my wit and appreciation and pry the recipe from him. Curried carrot bisque has never failed to seduce and tame anyone who has tried it; that includes man, woman, child and the occasional four legged furry gourmand dog lucky enough to taste it.
