Oyster and Wild Rice Bisque

Wintertime is oyster season in New England, so this chowder-like soup inspired by Nantucket's Christmas celebrations makes perfect sense for the holidays. Here's an easy way to create a dinner party for 16 in about half an hour: Make a double batch of this bisque and serve in a large tureen with small bowls so guests can serve themselves. Add a couple loaves of good crusty bread and you're all set.
