Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm a soup fanatic. So, you almost have to stop me from shaking as I turn the pages. 365 soup recipes! Really? Yes, really. It's printed on a nice premium white gloss stock. It has great page feel. Vibrant color images by Erin Kunkel add to the allure of the recipes. It's all soup, so you need to keep it entertaining. The way in which the cookbook is divided into days and months does that. They have found a perfect way to keep a single subject cookbook interesting from start to finish." (The Cookbook Man (cookbookman.com))

Without question, this is my new favorite cookbook. But, I offer a warning to others...if you don't like variety and if making decisions is difficult for you then please go buy a can of Campbell's or a bag of Bob's Red Mill 13 Bean Soup. There are 365 soups in here and a sense of adventure is REQUIRED. This book is for people who enjoy cooking and feel a sense of accomplishment when they build something wonderful from scratch. However, even if you aren't good at making decisions, just make the soup that has already been assigned to the day - problem solved!

What I really enjoy about the book is it has taken me out of my comfort zone. We have 4 children and as many large families already know, getting into a routine (e.g. Spaghetti every 3rd wednesday, fish sticks & mac 'n' cheese Fridays, etc.) is sometimes necessary to maintain your sanity. However, everyone needs a little spice in their life!

Since most of the recipes call for fresh ingredients, making these soups as a spur of the moment decision is probably not the best idea. Now, chances are you can find a soup in the book that fits whatever is already in the pantry/fridge. But, you may not find a soup that you're in the mood for and not having the right ingredients on hand will just lead to frustration. What I've been doing is picking one soup per week to make and placing it on the calendar. I plan my shopping trips accordingly and wait in anticipation the whole week!

I usually don't find reviews to be helpful when they state generalities like, "There aren't enough pictures" or "There aren't enough vegetarian options"...this is all a matter of opinion. Here are some details about the book that you might find helpful:

I love this book. My wife and I have tried about 15 of the recipes. One is more delicious than the previous. All are so easy to make, with readily available ingrediants. Clear instrutions that make the novice cook feel like they have produced a masterpiece. I bought a copy for each of my grown children, and now they are "texting me" about how they and their friends are enjoying the results. Really terrific book. I am not a foody, per se, but there is something special about what this author has put together. GREAT gift, too.

A nice bowl of soup need not be restricted for those cold evenings when you just want something quick and possibly filling to warm you up. A soup is neither just a means of using up old vegetables and ingredients into a form of warm gloop. It is a lot more, much more.

Here this book could be viewed as a work of religious art for soup lovers. A mass of 365 different recipes and not a variation on a theme (tomato soup, cream of tomato soup, tomato and vegetable soup, etc...). It might not be hype to describe it as a masterpiece or a critical reference work within its genre.

The book's own introduction sets the scene perfectly. "Hot, cold, smooth, chunky, creamy, broth - soups come in myriad forms... This book will encourage you to make soups on any day of the year... draw on seasonal ingredients--asparagus and peas in spring; corn, peppers, and tomatoes in summer; cruciferous vegetables and hearty greens during the fall; and root vegetables in winter."

Split into months and then presented as effectively a daily calendar, you get a great at-a-glance of soups that could be recommendable within the month. Of course, there is no law saying that you should only eat winter soups in winter and vice versa, but it is a nice navigation and presentation method that works well in this instance.

Each recipe is cleanly and simply laid out, a sidebar with a general overview before one gets a separate ingredients list at the top. The cooking instructions are methodical and not arduous to follow.

It would have been nice to have seen some typical preparation and cooking times broken out into a separate section so that it could be determined whether the recipe would "fit" a meal plan based on available time.

I've tried a number of recipes and almost all of them have been very good. Most of the recipes are at a good level of effort for me - relatively simple to put together, but interesting enough to be worth the effort. I'm particularly fond of the recipes that combine very simple ingredient lists into something that's surprisingly tasty at the end. A few favorites - the chilled avocado soup garnished with shrimp and salsa, and a sundried tomato soup garnished with crab. The one downside is that this type of recipe depends very heavily on ingredient quality, so they aren't exactly cheap to make. On the other hand, I've almost always found them worth it.

I also have to say that we haven't tried as many of the more "traditional" recipes, and most of the recipes are for relatively small batches. So this might not be the recipe book for someone interested in soups that fill their traditional role of cheap, easy meals for feeding a large number of people. However, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to push their boundaries a little bit and try some interesting new dishes.

When I first looked at the book, I thought the calendar-style layout was a bit gimmicky. After working with the book for a while, though, I have to say that I love it! It gives you a good starting point when you aren't sure what you want for dinner - flip to the current day, and then page around and you will find a number of very different in-season recipes, one of which is almost sure to fit the bill. All in all, this is one of my favorite cookbooks, and my go-to cookbook for days when I want to try something new that'll be tasty but not too much work.
