    oooo, another idea! Replace the sour cream with crème fraîche, top with some cavier...and charge twice as much ;-)

    this sounds lovely. I bet jasmine rice would be nice too because it's so fragrant.

    Would you please explain the garnish? It looks like avocado with lobster meat on the bottom layer?

    I've never seen rice in a bisque. Don't think I would like that.. Recipe sounds good otherwise. But, I am always looking to try something new. I;ll give it a whirl.

    I've never seen a bisque with basmati, this sounds velvety, just like a bisque should be. Lobster, cream and alcohol? This has to be a five and I'm a fan!
