Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Soup Bible is a wonderful collection of soup recipes divided into six sections: light & refreshing, rich & creamy, warming winter, hearty lunch, one-pot-meals, and special occasion. The variety is excellent, and there are soups from around the world. The front section on making stocks is very helpful as it includes not only the standard vegetable, chicken and meat stocks, but also fish stock and stocks for Chinese and Japanese cooking.

Each recipe comes with beautiful end-result pictures as well as pictures of some of the steps involved. The directions are clear and simple. Many of the recipes come with suggestions for variations and all of the vegetarian selections are marked. Most of the soups use easy-to-find ingredients, but the exceptions often have tips on where to find the unfamiliar items.

I've tried several of the recipes with no problems and delicious results. One of my personal favorites is the Tomato and Blue Cheese Soup. I'm looking forward to cooking and eating my way through these soups.

Format: Hardcover
When the days become long, the body becomes lethargic and even the tar is beginning to melt, the last place one wants to be is in a hot kitchen. Summer is the season for quick, light meals that don't take a lot of time, but restore your energy. But if you do have to get into the kitchen, rather than throwing together the customary salad, how about a bowl of soup after that dip in the pool?

Consulting editor Debra Mayhew has combed the four corners of the globe to bring together a collection of wonderful recipes in The Soup Bible.

Stirring in tips for making stock, garnishes, and notes on how to pick the best ingredients, these soups are designed not just for summer, but those occasions that call for something special, as well as those chilly winter nights when all you want to do is curl up with a good book and a warm hearty bowl:

Light and Refreshing: Gazpacho (the ultimate in summer soups), Vichyssoise, Summer Tomato Soup, Watercress and Orange Soup (what an interesting combination)

One-Pot Meal Soups: Seafood and Sausage Gumbo, Spinach and Lemon Soup with Meatballs (traditionally known in Greece as Avgolomono without the meatballs), and Creole Shrimp

Hearty Lunch and Supper Soups: Lentil Soup with Rosemary, Italian Arugula and Potato Soup, Pistou (a scrumptious French vegetable soup), and New England Clam Chowder

Special Occasion: Butternut Squash Bisque, Tomato and Fresh Basil Soup, Spinach and Rice Soup (a nice and sneaky way for parents to add a vegetable in a meal for those picky-eater kids) and Saffron-Mussel Soup.

The book is full of exquisite, mouth-watering photographs and even the soup bowls both rustic and elegant are beautifully displayed.

With over 200 recipes to prepare for friends and family, it's a world tour of soups.

Fresh bread required.

Format: Paperback
I've had this book now for a few years. I've made about half of the soups and I could say with certainty that 50% of them are really great. The other 50% are lacking. The pictures are gorgeous, and I appreciate the photographs (why so many cookbooks fail to include photos for every recipe, I can't guess). But some of the soups are very bland, even though the picture is pretty. I have found myself tinkering with the recipes, trying to add some flavor, and have begun to recognize that the soups without spices are really unexciting. Still, a good buy, lots of options to choose from.

The Soup Bible is an excellent collection of soup recipes. It offers recipes for a wide range of soups including both standard Euro/American fare as well as some interesting ones from more exotic places.
Mayhew's recipes are very clearly written so you don't feel like you're studying for finals before you attempt them. Also, these recipes don't require you to hunt down ridiculously expensive or hard-to-find ingredients.
I've made quite a few of the soups in this book and all have been real successes.

This is a very good collection of a few classic and quite a few not so classic soup recipes which are easy to follow and are accompanied by glossy color photos. You will also find a few garnishing ideas to give some extra dimension and flair if you want to impress your guests. Well worth the price

If you only buy one recipe book for soups, make it this one. It's a fantastic book with easy to follow instructions and lots of great photos. It has a great recipe collection from all over the world and it includes many old classics, too! Try it out!
