And now, having read the recipe in the NYTimes, I know why, this is about the most complex lobster bisque recipe I have ever seen. Way to complex for lazy old me to try and create at home. Anyone want to give it a try.
It is really good. I love this stuff. At one time Hamburger Hamlet had the best burgers in L.A., that may not be true today, but still, every once in a while, a half pound Hamlet Burger (Number 11) prceeded by a bowl (not a cup) of this nectar is a close approximation of life in Heaven.
