cod cheeks test kitchen: red pepper bisque

by brendan on September 13, 2006

i get a weekly email newsletter from cuesa (the center for urban education about sustainable agriculture)about the goings on of the farmers market at the ferry building in san francisco that usually includes a few great recipes that i never try. i decided this week to try out the recipe for red pepper bisque – you can find the recipe here. there is not much to say about the making of it as it was incredibly easy and turned out delicious (and i forget to take a picture, doh!). my testers agreed it was pretty good, and like the kick it got from adding a little extra cayenne pepper. i also used some home made chicken stock that had been waiting it’s turn diligently in the freezer, and i think that made a big difference. it was great for a foggy san francisco evening, and then next night, after a bit of reduction, did double duty as a sauce for a pork tenderloin. . . me likes to reuse things in the kitchen!

the meal was followed by some crispy cornish game hens, but we’ll talk about those a bit later. . .
