Default Ideas for presentation....

In Memphis in May I cook a crawfish bisque for seafood anything butt. Its placed 12-19 place out of a few hundred over the last few years. I've placed it in bell peppers, bread bowels, and regular ramicans. Any ideas on how to serve it in six portions that will fit in a blind box. I do not like bread bowels b/c that could get soggy while waiting to get judge.

Just thinking out loud, how about a 1/2 coconut shell? or some kind of gourd or squash.

How about those little tea cups that Chinese restaurants use to serve tea in?

Maybe you could find some sea shells that would fit.

Maybe some decent sized shot glasses.............Bisque Shooters! One way around the soggy bread would be to put a ramekin inside the hollowed out bread bowl. I just can't see how six would fit in a blind box though. Are we talking about the standard size box?

In SF I learned a little tip while on the Wharf. One of the chowder vendors rubbed room temp butter all up inside the cavity of the sourdough bread bowl. That added flavor but also helped the issue of sogginess. Not permanent, but helps it go farther.

Shot glass set into a bread bowl with the top just below the crust?

Maybe even hang a little crawfish tail off the edge of the shooter. You could even rim the shooter with some kind of rub that would go well with the bisque.

I've been howling out green bell peppers... the color contrast between that and the orange/pink bisque looks good with a sprig of cilantro in the top. I have tought and tried to spruce the bell pepper up like a melon with carvings but the tend to look like a 5th grader did it. I thought of seashells but it might give the wrong impression ...crawfish vs crab or diced shrimp. Anything I turn in at MIM on the river will NOT get return so expensive containers are out of the question but i like the idea of shot glasses (plastic) or even small punch glasses with a crawfish tail sticking out and a sprig of cilantro sticking out like a crawfish cocktail... I will play with that idea... Thanks for the input folks pics to follow SOON.
