Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is full of yummy, mouthwatering recipes and tons of helpful tips for a souper experience in home cooking. (Brenda Junkin Plain Dealer (Cleveland) 2009-03-18)

Packed with easy-to-use recipes that produce reliable and flavorful results. Beginners will find [it] easy to follow, and the books should stoke the imaginations of veterans. (The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) 2008-12-17)

From chilled soups to chowders, this book is filled to the brim with delicious recipes. A personal note to Hot Guacamole Soup with Cumin and Cilantro: Your days of missing from our soup repertoire are numbered. (Jeff Houck The Tampa Tribune 2008-11-30)

This cookbook brims with great recipes and is highly recommended. (Larry Cox Tucson Citizen 2009-01-29)

I found a lot of new and interesting ideas when I leafed through the new 300 Sensational Soups. These recipes cover a lot of ground... But what really grabbed my attention was the wealth of creative recipes. (Michael Hastings Journal Now 2009-01-14)

There were many good soup books published in 2008, but this one was my favorite because of its variety and creativity. There are 300 soups in here to choose from, and many of them would make a perfect meal, perhaps with some crusty bread and a tossed green salad. Given the current economic climate, soup for supper is an excellent idea. (Sara Molton, "Good Morning America" food editor ABC News 2008-12-23)

Ten chapters cover soul nurturing, with soups for every season, from traditional comfort food to exotic adventures in a bowl. Tips are included with the 300 recipes: San Marzano tomatoes, imported from Italy, are thought by many to be the best canned tomatoes in the world. Mushrooms will be much happier if stored in your refrigerator in a paper bag. In the "Gilding the Lily" chapter there is even a brownie crouton recipe that can be used for this rich and easy luscious recipe from the "Just Dessert Soups" chapter. How about this for a midnight snack! (Lois Freedman Desert Leaf 2011-03-01)

I've never been much of a soup person. That is, until about a month and a half ago when I got this insatiable craving for soup. Suddenly, I can't seem to get enough. About two weeks into my soup phase, I ordered 300 Sensational Soups thinking maybe I could make some soup and skip the canned stuff. Being as I never really liked soup, I was a bit intimidated at first so I just started making whatever made me salivate while reading. Then, I got a bit more adventurous as I came to realize how easy it was to make these delicious recipes. I can't see myself buying canned soup anymore -- especially when there are some really tasty things I can create in half an hour to forty-five minutes. When it comes to soup, nothing compares to homemade. (Tami Brady TCM Reviews 2011-03-11)

There are great summer soup recipes, and even some great recipes for parties.

I received this book as a gift, and made one of the recipes for company the night before Thanksgiving.

I have made about a dozen recipes from the book now and so far the soups have all been sensational.

I LOVE this book!!! I purchased it and had made several of the recipes when, to my delight, I watched Sara Moulton on Good Morning America choose it as one of the 10 best cookbooks of 2008. I could not agree more and admire Sara Moulton very much for finding this book among all of the books out there. These authors have written several cookbooks and I always look for new ones from them. I have never been disappointed by them. I highly recommend the Middle Eastern Lentil Soup with Garlic, which I served my family last night. I have also tried a more "comfort food" style by making the Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken-Corn Soup with Tiny Dumplings. To date I have prepared about half a dozen of the recipes and my family are all big fans. I am very much looking forward to their next book.

I got 300 Sensational Soups from the library and was doubtful I'd find anything new or exciting. It is soup afterall, not always the center of a meal. Was I ever wrong! This book has great recipes I've never seen before, and has actually inspired me to make a soup dinner at least once a week during cold weather months. In addition to the great recipes, there are tips in the margin that are actually helpful! (in some other books, the tips only fill up space). There are also soups such as Day After Thanksgiving Soup, which come in handy. At at the end of the book there are recipes for toppings and garnishes that will make your soup sing: Chile Cheddar Croutons, Fluffy Dumplings, Crispy Shallots. Are you hungry yet? I ended up buying the book and will probably cook my way through it. This would be a great gift for a cook on your list. And an excellent pairing would be 300 Sensational Soups and one of the Artisan Bread books by Jeff Hertzberg MD and Zoe Francois.

This book is so amazing, I just cant stop!!!! In just one month, I have made about 10 soups from this book, and they all have been fabulous! My favorite so far is the Chicken Paprikash Soup with Spaetzel. I like the soup better than the real thing, and believe me, I am a Paprikash fan! Have loved the Wedding Soup, the Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice, Carrot Celery and Leek Soup with Cornbread Dumplings (made the dumplings in a separate pan with chicken stock, refrigerated the extra dumplings separately so they wouldnt get too soggy for leftovers), the Arugula Soup with Salmon and Roasted Grape Tomatoes was a REAL gourmet treat that was also easy! I truly cant and dont want to stop making soups from this book! This book is of the same excellent quality as this team's other books which I also recommend - Eating In the Foods You Love to Eat Out, The Big Book of Appetizers, and the Mixer Bible.

Its rare for me to hit a cookbook as hard and steady as this one. I have a virtual library of cookbooks, but I can't leave this one alone!

When food editor Sara Molton of Good Morning America did a segment called, "The Best Cookbooks for 2008", she selected and led off with "300 Sensational Soups," and said it was her favorite. I have to agree. This cook book is fantastic. There are soups for every season, even dessert soups! We have potlucks just about every month where I work, and without fail I make something from this book to bring. It's always a hit. Soups range from hearty to light, again depending on the time of year. Cold to warm, and if your feeling adventurous, there's a whole section of soups from around the world.

Whatever I'm in the mood for, or the occasion, this soup book has it. You can't get a better recommendations then one from Sara Molton, but I sure hope you also take one from an all American housewife like me.

Talking about this cookbook is making me hungry, I think I'll go make some soup.

For anyone just looking for a cookbook on how to make everyday standard soups, this isn't it. For people who want original ideas - grab this book. You will make soups that will make your family and friends rave about. Not only that, but they will create conversations - who has heard of chocolate soup with brownie croutons? My personal favorite is the African Peanut soup. It is hearty (almost like a stew), easy to make and it is delicious. My family goes on and on about how good it is. Our friends start with a bit of trepadation (sounds kind of exotic they say) and end with "can I have another bowl please". These soups are great by themselves or as a course. However, if you serve one of these as a course, don't make a big main dish as your guests will fill up on the soup.

I received this book as a gift, and made one of the recipes for company the night before Thanksgiving. The recipe was easy to follow, and everyone really loved it. Huge success. Nice selection and variety of soups in this book. I have several more recipes earmarked to try. If you like soup, I would highly recommend this book.

I love soup and I am always looking for new soups to try. Saw this featured on GMA and thought I'd give it a try. So far , so good. Love the Potato Tarragon soup and also tried and enjoyed a roasted tomato soup too. This week I am trying a creamy sweet potato soup with maple cream. Yum. I can't wait. I am hoping to try a new soup every week. Even my friends are begging for the soups. Yay! Great for people looking to try new things!
