Ingredients
  Butter 4 Tablespoon

  Minced garlic 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Ground nutmeg 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Worcestershire sauce 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Tabasco sauce 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Creole seasoning 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Tonys)
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Heavy cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  White crab meat 1 Pound
  Sherry 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Asparagus stalks 1 Bunch (100 gm)
  Ear of sweet corn 1 (Kernels Cut From The Cob)
  Boiled eggs 2
  Chopped green onions 1 Tablespoon
  White shredded cheddar cheese 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)
Directions

In a medium saucepan, add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Add asparagus and cut corn. Cook for 6-8 minutes.

In a deep 6 quart pot, heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium heat (#5-#6).

Saute the Cajun Trinity until well cooked. Add the minced garlic and sauté another minute. Remove from pot and set aside.

In the same pot, melt the 4 tablespoons butter. Blend in the 4 tablespoons flour stirring well. Cook about 2 minutes.

Slowly add the milk blending well with the white roux. Add the heavy cream. Stir constantly with a whisk to prevent scorching for 8-10 minutes. Mixture will become thickened.

Add all seasonings, Cajun Trinity, Crab Meat, Asparagus, Corn and chopped egg yolks. Stir well. (If a thinner consistency is desired, add 1 cup vegetable stock).

Cook another 5 minutes on low heat. Remove from heat.

Add and stir well the 1/2 cup wine.

Serve in a deep flat bowl. Garnish with chopped green onions and a lump of white cheddar cheese; accompanied with crusty French bread or rolls.
