Pet Peeve: "Bisque"

Mitzimouse | Jan 6, 2009 06:32 PM

Does this bug anyone else?

I hate when I go into a restaurant and I see items such as "Tomato Bisque" or "Squash Bisque" listed. Being such a food bioche, I politely say to the server, "Oh, so there's shellfish in it?" "No," they reply. "It's a vegetable cream soup." Since when did everything become a "bisque"? By definition, doesn't a bisque have a shellfish base? Have I overstepped my food arrogance?

Look forward to thought!
