Format: Paperback
Charming little book with a years' worth of soup recipes, arranged by season -- the "Soup Calendar." If you're looking to make something besides your usual chicken noodle soup or chili, this is a good starting point for ideas and inspiration. Some of the soups may be a little sophisticated for children, but for the most part, the recipes aren't complicated nor do they use hard-to-find ingredients.

Some cookbooks are fun to look at, but less appealing once I start surveying the ingredients list and preparation requirements. Not this one. The author doesn't insist on home-made stock or fresh herbs. Although the author includes several home-made stock recipes, she acknowledges the value and quality of store-purchased stockes, and lists Swansons and College Inn as some of her favorites. She recommends easy-to-find items, like McCormick spices, rather than sending you off to hunt down unpronounceable ingredients in an ethnic market.

The recipes are very good and for the most part, not too complicated. There are many purees, and there are quite a few chunky soups shown with thick shavings of parmesan across the top. There's something for everyone in here -- Basic Beef & Barley and other meat-based soups. Thick, creamy purees are the ultimate comfort food in my book, so I particularly like the fall soups featuring root vegetables. Some of my favorites are:

Fall:
Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Cider Cream
Creamy Stilton Soup with Sauteed Pears
Sweet Potato Soup with Orange Creme Fraiche

Spring:
Heavenly Asparagus Soup wwith Tarragon Cream
Carrot Soup Scented with Sesame and Chicken
Pumpkin Soup with Toasted Walnuts and Rosemary,

Not everyone will like every recipe in this book -- but most folks can find some things appealing, and plenty of inspiration otherwise.

I am a novice soup maker, but with the Sunday Soup recipes I have created two of the tastiest soups I have ever had, (Cauliflower w/Crispy Prosciutto and Tomato & Fennel). I can't wait to serve the Tomato & Fennel at my next dinner party. The soups are categorized by seasons, which makes for easy shopping, and optimal tastiness. I do recommend owning an immersion blender for the recipes; I picked up the affordable Cuisinart SmartStick, and it works like a charm.

I received this book as a Christmas gift and after trying the first "winter" soup, have been going back to this book every weekend for a new wonderful recipe to try. These soups are absolutely delicious! It's certainly not a reference book--don't buy this if you're looking for a book to have on hand to be able to tell you how to make basic chili, or chicken noodle soup--but it is a great place for ideas, both for the experienced cook and the not-so-experienced one.

Pros:
* Attention to detail--the author has notes about where to find less common ingredients, exactly which parts of the vegetables to use, and ways to add or remove ingredients or spices
* Great organization. Not sure what to try? Just pick the current season and look at the soup calendar.
* Variety. Some meat and potato soups, some chowders, stews, creamy soups, chunky soups, vegetables, whole-meal, traditional, exotic, etc.
* Accurate serving size predictions and time-to-make estimates.
* Beautiful pictures.
* Recipes are not too difficult, but not too basic.
* Delicious. I was skeptical on a couple that didn't include very many spices or seasonings, but mmmm. I would never have thought I would like something called celery bisque, but it was gobbled up faster than I could ladle out bowls in my house.
* Includes ideas for bread to serve with it, and other serving additions.
* Includes tips about preparation, and how much of the recipe you can make ahead.
* Doesn't demand home-made stocks or broths, but does give recipes on how to use these if you have the time and energy.
* Relatively healthy. I was surprised how few recipes called for cream as a thickener.

This is a fantastic book about soup...simple soup suppers to make on a Sunday...the soups are elegant enough to serve to friends and hearty and simple enough to make you want to make them...what I truly love about this book is the additions...what to serve with your soup be it salad, bread or wine...

While most of the recipes look interesting and delicious, I have made only two: Sweet Potato Soup with Orange Creme Fraiche and Gorgonzola Sandwiches with Apples and Pecans. The soup was thick and rich with the Orange Creme Fraiche as a luxurious complement. The sandwiches were good when made with the Granny Smith apples, but even better (I thought) when I used Bosc pears instead.

A friend made the the White Chili with Chicken and it was perfect for our winter weather. The chili was spicy enough to have a kick but not 'hot' enough to make my eyes water

The directions are thoughtful, clear and detailed, even a novice soup maker like me can follow them confidently. Three alternatives for soup stock allows the cook to be realistic about the amount of time and effort she/he is willing or able to invest. The comparison between sweet potatoes and red sweet potatoes (sometimes called yams) was very helpful. There are even directions to make your own Creme Fraiche. Finally, the recipes, especially for go-with salads, breads, and sandwiches, allow for individual adjustments and taste.

I have one quibble with the cookbook: the time of preparation indicated. It took me all morning to cut up the vegetables required for the Sweet Potato Soup and then the afternoon to roast the potatoes, assemble the soup and cook it. If I had had a sous chef to do the preparation, perhaps I could have done it in the 20 minute prep time and one hour start-to-finish time indicated.

Overall, Sunday Soup is a wonderful collection of familiar and fresh recipes for delicious soups and salads, breads, and sandwiches to go with them. I intend to continue making them throughout the year.
