   SET A LARGE, HEAVY POT or Dutch oven on the stove over low heat and cook
   the bacon, stirring, for 2 minutes without browning. Add the white wine,
   increase heat to high, bring to a boil and cook 1 minute to burn off the
   alcohol. Add the chicken, shrimp, broth, garlic, onions, celery seed and
   aniseed and decrease heat to medium. If using dried tarragon, add it now.
   Cover and cook 3 minutes. Add the broccoli and milk and cook, uncovered,
   another 2 minutes. Taste the soup for salt and pepper and add as desired.
   To serve, use a slotted spoon to transfer the bacon, chicken, shrimp and
   broccoli to soup bowls. Return the broth to a boil and add the butter. Turn
   off heat and add the chopped fresh tarragon leaves. Serve the soup in a
   tureen and ladle it into the garnished bowls at the table.
