MARK,
Is your place open to the public, or just club members?

I'll post the soup recipe on Weds. & the photo too if some can tell me how to upload it to a website that will store it, or do I mail it to Tim? The cedar planked salmon was good too I bought some shingles in homee depot, soaked them in water for 20 mins, brushed with olive oil, seared the fish, grilled the planks on a very hot grill then placed the salmon on the plank & wrapped the whole thing in foil. First time doin it & it had a very slight hint of cedar 7 smoke NICE!

Any chance I could get a recipe for the Gorganzola Red Wine Sauce? Had a filet with this sauce in Chicago - best I ever ate!

From Chef Rizzo
Tomato Mushroom Bisque:
yield: About 1 gallon

2qt chicken stock
1 qt crushed tomato
2 dozen ripe plum tomato
1# button mushroom - chop stem , slice mush
1# portabella - clean gills,save stem, slice
1# ****ake- sliced, save stems
1# oyster - sliced , save stem
2 large onions - chopped
1 large head garlic- roasted, chopped
2 baking potatoes - peeled , chopped
1/2 can tomato paste
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup white wine
sugar to taste
salt and pepper to taste
hot sauce to taste
fresh basil
In a heavy bottom pot heat your oil, sautee your onions and garlic till soft. Add all of your reserved mushroom stems and sautee until golden brown. Add your tomato paste and cook until dark red, few minutes. Add your white wine and reduce by half. Then add your plum tomato, stock, potatoes, and crushed tomato. Simmer and season with S&P, sugar, and hot sauce. Then in sautee pans you must carmelize all of your sliced mushrooms. When the soup has simmered and the potatoes are soft you must puree in a blender. Be Careful use a cloth to cover your blender and pulse it in the begginning. Hot Liquid, OUCH! When finshed strain through a Medium sized colander. Reheat, add your sliced mushrooms, taste and reseason. Finish with some warm heavy cream before service.
