Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Author (A Passion for My Provence) and cooking school owner (Chez Lydie en Provence) Marshall explains the secrets to soups in this winning volume. Her love of her subject matter is evident in her helpful technique advice and her fond recollections of rewarding soup experiences, such as the rare pleasure of her mother's bechamel-enhanced soups, made with butter and milk friends that smuggled into WWII Paris. This book offers friendly reading, with anecdotes of acquaintances who have contributed their favorite soups, and it boasts 150 recipes in chapters on broth, vegetable soups (this chapter is seasonally subdivided), seafood soups, and meat and poultry soups. From hearty Ribollita to Lobster Bisque and two versions of gazpacho, there are soups-many with international flavor-for every occasion. In the final three chapters, Marshall provides recipes for salads, breads and desserts. This dilutes the book's focus a bit, but ideas for interesting accompaniments, including Goat Cheese Fritters, Tuscan bread and Cherry Clafoutis, enable readers to create complete meals.

From Library Journal

For many years, Marshall (A Passion for Potatoes) ran a much-loved cooking school in New York City, but she now spends most of her time in her native France, which she wrote about in Chez Nous: Home Cooking from the South of France (retitled A Passion for My Provence for the paperback edition). Here she presents her favorite soup recipes, which include not only French classics such as La Mouclade (creamy curried mussel soup) but also many inspired by other cuisines, from Guatemalan Avocado Soup to Mexican Chicken Soup. Some are homey, others are elegant, and most are easy. There are also chapters on salads, breads, and desserts to round out the meal. Marshall's recipes are always delicious; recommended for most collections.

Get out your pots and pans! Lydie Marshall has written another superb cookbook. Even if you think you don't like soup, you'll enjoy reading Madame Marshall's charming, often amusing, stories about her childhood in France, her family, neighbors and friends that accompany each recipe. (There's even a soup from her French cats' veterinarian's wife!) The recipes are easy to follow, the steps simple and clear and the results uncommonly delicious. The soups are divided into five sections: broths; vegetable soups; bean, pea and lentil soups; seafood; and meat and poultry soups. The recipes range from standard classics like Mediterranean fish soup with garlic mayonnaise; borscht, gazpacho and pistou to a sublime porcini consomme, Mexican chicken soup with tortilla chips and youska, a Russian potato and lox soup. There are 53 vegetable soups, categorized by season. She has even included an excellent as well as surprisingly efficacious "day after" soup for when you've overindulged the day before or feel a cold coming on. Also included are selections of salad, bread, and dessert recipes that go well with soup. I especially liked the chicory salad with bacon, croutons and poached eggs and the salad greens with fried potato and onions. Calvin Trillin has written a delightful laudatory ode of an introduction. The book's covers are laminated and it has a knock-out gorgeous dustjacket that looks so delicious and happy and warm, you almost want to eat it! This is one case where the cover truly does reflect the book. A must for anyone interested in healthy gourmet cooking and good eating!

Soup of the Day is a fabulous cookbook. Its delicious, numerous recipes offer an appealing variety. Its clear directions are easy to follow and most soups may be prepared with minimum preparation.
I've already used it as a gift to eight friends, both men and women with varying degrees of culinary skill -- all are delighted. Most enjoy selecting recipes for "recreational" cooking on the weekend.
People who enjoy background stories will appreciate Lydie Marshall's delightful commentary.
