The recipes are divided up by seasons of the year which I like. Winter soups are a lot different from summer soups. I especially like the cold soup selection for summer months and the hearty soup and stew recipes for the winter.
This is a book that I know I'll use often and I found the narratives heart-warming and inspiring.
The basic premise of soup night is that the hostess provides a pot of soup and invites the neighbors to share, including the neighbors they haven't met or know well. Guests bring their own soup bowls and spoons, reducing clean-up for the hostess, and one or more may also bring a loaf of bread. There are variations of the basic idea. Some communities alternate host homes and others always meet at the same home. Some meet monthly year-round; some meet during winter months only. One community operates soup night like a restaurant and uses it as a fundraiser. One hostess buys soup bowls at yard sales so she always has a colorful assortment for her guests; others provide disposible bowls.
The author visited soup nights across the country and interviewed founders, hostesses, and guests about how soup night impacted their lives. Most interesting are the interviews with now young adults who grew up protected by the entire neighborhood because they got to know all the adults through the soup nights of their childhood.
I loved the stories. The recipes were just a nice bonus.<br/><br/>
Though the recipes look great, I was more interested in the stories and the possibilities of sharing soup. Life has become so busy that entertaining can be stressful but a soup supper has so many possibilities, book clubs, bunko groups, girls night, meetings of any sort. I have told everyone and anyone who will listen about this book and the great ideas and stories coupled with the soup and accompaniment recipes.
Can't wait to try my first SOUP SUPPER!
