Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have quite a few books on making soup, but nothing like this one. This thing is liking take a course in Soup 101. It's sorta half talking all about soup, and half recipes. Truly, if you love soup and are always trying to find new ways to make different and better ones, and, can't get enough of talking about soup and learning new tips and ideas, this book is for you big time. All my other books are all about recipes, which this has an ample of amount of. But the opening chapters really do begin as if someone doesn't even know what soup is. It's interesting, hard to put down, full of lore and tips about cooking soup, and, has some great recipes in it as well. Some well known and trustworthy, and some a little more daring. Even my Mom has learned something new. All in all a terrific book on soup you will not find anywhere else that I highly recommend.. : )

I visit a resturant at least once a month and found that I love their soups. When talking to the cook about the receipes for his soups, he told me that they come from this book.. Now, I can make the same soups and they are so very tasty!

Format: Paperback
The person making the comment above has clearly not even looked at the book. ""Cans of soup" are nowhere mentioned, and every recipe is about making soup from scratch. It is very sad that a fine piece of work should be slandered like this.

This is a book about creating delicious soups from ingredients that are already in your pantry and your garden. Soup is just about the most wonderful dish there is, and this book will start you on the journey of discovery.

I love this cookbook. I use it all the time. The soups are delicious and the recipes are easy to follow. The ingredients aren't expensive and can be bought in most food stores and supermarkets.
