Chef Sawsan’s Pumpkin Bisque Recipe

We enjoyed having Chef Sawsan Galal from Rockport’s Sally Webster Inn at our Harvest event on November 17th, where we featured food from our Seaview Farm Store and a cooking demo. Chef Sawsan demonstrated a simple and delicious pumpkin bisque (using roasted pumpkins grown by Seaview Farm!).

Pumpkin Bisque is a great Fall/Winter soup that will also serve you well when entertaining during the holidays!
