Editorial Reviews

Review

"Soup: A Global History is part of the "Edible" series of books.  The series is dedicated to culinary history, presenting the history of an individual food in each book. The volumes are slender, but filled with information, and written by a variety of food historians.  Each one is charming, informative, easy to read, and accompanied with photographs that are historical as well as contemporary.  The books are well-researched, but are light in presentation, and with humorous accounts of the human foibles that accompany food development.  Soup: A Global History is an informative and light-hearted book about soup, slender to the hand, but packed with history, facts, and stories." (Diana Serbe In Mamas Kitchen.com )

“Helped by tasty color reproductions of old soup adverts, Clarkson investigates soups as comfort (chicken), medicine (lentils or, believe it or not, vipers) and weapon (‘Arsenic-laced soup was the method of choice of the serial killer Hélène Jégado (1801-52’).”

(Steven Poole Guardian )

“The Edible series of books, with titles such as Tea, Sandwich, Soup and others, are full of fascinating facts but are almost small enough to squeeze into a Christmas stocking.”

(Delicious )
