The Whitney Roasted Pumpkin Bisque
Serves 6

Ingredients
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 leeks, sliced and rinsed
1 celery stalk, diced
1 small onion, diced
3 ½ cups fresh  diced, peeled pumpkin
1 bay leaf
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 fresh sage leaves
2 quarts chicken stock
1 tablespoon kosher salt
½ cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons honey
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 Tablespoons  dry sherry
[Chef's Note: Tie the bay leaf, thyme sprigs and sage leaves together with buthers twine, or wrap into a sachet using cheesecloth, so that it can be removed easily at the end of the cooking time.]

Equipment
Medium soup pot
Immersion blender or counter top blender

Preparation
In a medium soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the leeks, garlic, celery and onion. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the pumpkin, herbs and stock, brown sugar, honey and bring to a boil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until the pumpkin is tender and cooked through.
Remove the wrapped herbs . Purée the soup with a handheld immersion blender until no lumps remain. If necessary, pass the soup through a sieve. Return the soup to the pot and add the sherry. Bring the soup back to a simmer. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve in warmed soup bowls with croutons or a swirl of cream.

    It's not just the styles that have changed with weddings over the years -- it's also the technology. Disposable cameras used to be the norm, but now there's an even simpler way for the bride and groom to get some candid photos of their special day.
