DIRECTIONS

  1. Saute onion and carrot in 2 tablespoons butter until fragrant and soft. Set aside.
  2. In a pot, melt 4 tablespoons butter and add flour, whisking constantly over medium heat until roux becomes light brown.
  3. Slowly add chicken broth, whisking constantly to ensure mixture stays smooth.
  4. Add onions and carrots, cover, and simmer for 1/2 hour.
  5. Add cream, wine, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, chili flakes, cayenne pepper, salt, and lobster or crab and simmer an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Garnish with aged cheddar, and serve with fresh biscuits.

Wine Pairing: A dry, oaky Chardonnay would pair nicely with the Crab Bisque
