"I tried out for the show "Master Chef" this past October in New York Ciy. One of my fellow contestants made a Pumpkin Soup with Applewood Bacon. He made it to the next round but sadly I did not. This is my rendition of his soup. I made it my own by using Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato and made it richer by turning this into a Bisque. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Please share your comments."
