Great Comfort Food Recipes
on January 6, 2011
Lorraine Wallace is the wife of Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, known by his fans as "Mr. Sunday". Lorraine's delicious soups became the meal of choice every Sunday when he returned home from a long morning at his anchor job. As he raved about them on-air, everyone wanted the recipes. This cookbook is the Wallace's response to the requests.
The book includes soup recipes by season with lots of colorful photos. All the recipes look delicious and nourishing. The only one I've tried so far is the hearty lentil soup which was great and I look forward to trying many more. Other offerings include Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup, Senate Bean Soup, Hot and Sour Soup, Mexican Albondigas, Tortellini Meatball Soup, Greek Lemon Soup, Frogmore Stew and several kinds of chili, to name just a few. Lorraine also includes her recipes for basic stocks. Most of the recipes seem easy to make and include commonly found ingredients or those that could be substituted (canned or frozen clams instead of fresh, for example, for the clam chowder recipe).
I did enjoy this cookbook and also liked that the author included some family photos and lets the reader catch a glimpse of the Wallace's family life.
I was given a copy of this book for review by the publisher but the opinion is mine alone and wasn't solicited. If I didn't like the book I would say so.
