Crab Bisque with Celery Root Flan

A friend and fellow food writer/cookbook author posted this a day or two ago: "For the next 2 weeks, I'm going to cook whatever I want and I'm not going to write it down, save the receipts, or set a timer.

I was thinking "pork tenderloin" but when I got to the meat & seafood department, those big, plump Dungeness crab really caught my attention. At under $5 per pound, they were impossible to resist. Just Wednesday, I'd been talking with guests at Tom Douglas's Cookbook Social about Dungeness crab, particularly with one couple who pull up plenty of their own crab throughout ...
