Organized by ingredients such as vegetables, beans, grains, and fruit, the recipes include old favorites like French Onion and Chicken Matzoh Ball soups, as well as less familiar brews such as Jamaican Pumpkin soup, Shrimp and Scallop Seviche, and Poblano Corn Chowder. In addition to a chapter devoted to chilis---Braised Pork Chili with Black Beans and Corn is a particular winner--the authors provide notes on ingredients and techniques, historical asides, and a series of tongue-in-cheek sidebars, offering, for example, the Periodic Table of Soups and Baby Names for the New Millennium ("Art E. Choke" is one). If these digressions aren't always apt, there are always the soups, with several pièce de résistance examples--Peking Duck; Lamb, Artichoke, and Rosemary Stew; and Saffron Mussel soup--guaranteed to please. A final section on stocks provides basic soup building-block information, and Things to Do with Leftover Soups offers next-day options, should any of the delicious bowls not be devoured instantly. --Arthur Boehm

However, these are very expensive and time-consuming recipes. If you follow them exactly, you'll get excellent soup. You'll also spend lots of money on ingredients and about two hours chopping, chopping, chopping to make the vegetable stock, then more chopping to make the actual soup. I nearly lost my mind (and about 35 minutes) grinding a pound of salted peanuts into a paste with a blender, only to realize: Couldn't I have achieved this by buying natural, unsugared peanut butter? Couldn't I have purchased that vegetable stock from Imagine Foods? (Maybe not. After the aforementioned hours of chopping, you might not want to risk [messing] up the whole dish with a substitution. And when you need 12 cups of stock, buying it makes it even more expensive).
Anyway, I would recommend this book to a friend. Especially a rich, single friend.
To me, soup makes me feel better, warms us my house and my soul. Maybe it reminds me of being a kid or of my grandmother -- either way I think it has the same effect on everyone!
(PS: Did you know that "lentil soup dates back to 8,000 BC"?)
Anyway, In the How to Use this Book section, you will learn Good Cooking Requirements, Ingredient Familiarization, Organization, Taste, Time, and most importantly -- Love!
(PS: Did you know that "Hands are for whenever tools don't work; Fingers are for whenever hands don't work; and as far as your Tongue is concerned -- if the soup doesn't touch your tongue often enough, it's unloved!")
The Daily Soup Cookbook starts off with recipes containing veggies, tomatoes, and rice, then goes on to grains, pasta, bread, corn, potatos, the very thoughtful -- music recommendations while cooking your soup, beans, chili, another thoughtful entry -- movies to rent while eating your soup, lentils and peas, nuts, coconuts, cheese, a periodic table of soups (a must see, I could never explain it), fruit, the very clever -- Soup Personals (another must see), roux (pronounced roo), and finally, Really Delicious Soups that Didn't Fit into Any Chapter!
My favorite parts of the book include: Things to do with Leftover Soup (very helpful for families), Baby Names for the New Milliennium (i.e., Girls: Saffron, Pumpkin; Boys: Stew, Penne, and the best -- Art E. Choke); and of course, the fact that this all started in a small East Village, NY kitchen.
For an East Coast chick like myself -- this book is like a warm, aromatic bowl of soup!
