   " A delicious, thick, creamy, crab soup from Scotland.
   Partan is the Gaelic word for crab and bree from
   brigh, which means broth.
     Bring the milk almost to the boiling point in a
   heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the rice and anchovy
   fillets. Simmer until the rice is well done. Remove
   from heat and add the crabmeat.
     Puree the soup in a blender or food processor.
   Return the pureed soup to a large saucepan and
   gradually stir into hr stock. Season with salt and
   pepper to taste. Add the cream just before serving.
   N.B. This soup can be served either hot or cold. For
   some reasons, it always seems to taste better hot.
