Winter Wine Land

Could you have asked for a more beautiful weekend?  We spent Winter Wine Land weekend with Dutcher Crossing Winery up on Dry Creek road.  After all of the rain the sun came out and made for a great event. By this morning (Monday) I have already had servreal requests for the recipe for our Truffle Mushroom Bisque that we served.

This bisque goes well with the richer red wines.  The cream on the palate and the touch of truffle oil add an earthy full flavor.  Look for the truffle oil at gourmet food stores and often at Trader Joes

2 tsp Thyme
4 oz Butter
4 oz Onions
8 oz Crimini Mushrooms
16 Tbs Flour
5 cup Stock – chix, veg or mushroom
2 cup Heavy Cream
3 Tbs White Truffle Oil

Sauté thyme, butter, onions & mushrooms.
Add flour & cook 2 to 3 minutes
Add stock & whisk well
After it starts to thicken, finish with the heavy cream and truffle oil
May be served chunky or pureed
