I've made Wild Mushroom Bisque several times in the last month. I love the soup from Au Bon Pain and tried to make my own version at home.

You will need:
-3 tb butter
-4 cups of wild mushrooms: shitake, crimini, baby bella, or button...you can use a combination of some too
-1 large onion, roughly cut (a small one worked perfectly fine for me, and at times, it was cut into little pieces)
-1 leek, cleaned and rough cut (I didn't use that)
-4 to 5 cups chicken stalk (I used a chicken bullion cube and added boiling water to it to make the broth)
-1/2 cup of heavy cream (didn't use)
-2 tb of flour
-salt and pepper to taste
-fresh thyme, to taste (didn't use)

I added to the recipe "Forrest Blend Seasoning", "Chicken and Steak Seasoning", and possibily "Pasta Rossa". These are seasonings made by Santa Maria. I don't know if they are in the states or not. Just in case, this is what makes them up:
Forrest Blend: mushrooms, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and pepper
Chicken and Steak: pepper, paprika, coriander, mustard seeds, and garlic
Pasta Rossa: garlic, tomato, pepper, chili, and mediterranean herbs (it doesn't specify what type of herbs though).

-In soup pot, sweat the onions, leeks, and mushrooms in butter until translucent.
-Add flour. Cook until tan and nutty smelling
-Add chicken stalk.
-Add the seasonings-Simmer for an hour


-Take it off the heat, and let it cool (didn't do)
-Carefully pour soup into the blender and blend until smooth (didn't do)
-Add cream and fresh thyme to taste (didn't do).
-Season to taste with salt and pepper (did that before I had the soup simmer for an hour)
