    The court bouillon with the dash of curry was amazingly fragrant. The end result was a creamy soup with a nice light flavour of scallops dairy and tang, really very nice. It didn't thicken as much as I would have thought but that might be because you used low fat milk. You put less butter in the finishing than she suggests and it was still plenty rich. Spencer really liked it. Trying to freeze it to see how that works out with the dairy.
