Amazon.com Review

Williams-Sonoma, purveyor of choice gourmet products and kitchenware, has also created a collection of succinct yet comprehensive cookbooks. Part of the series, Soup offers 40 all-occasion recipes that reflect the company's signature good taste. Well-chosen formulas for what is surely the world's most satisfying food include classics like Chicken Noodle Soup, Shrimp Bisque, and French Onion Soup; simple soups like Garlic Stracciatella; and dinner-party specialties such as Three-Mushroom Soup with Sherry. Recipes for summer and winter soups like Curried Corn Soup and White Bean, Pasta and Swiss Chard Soup take advantage of seasonal bounty, while a concluding section entirely devoted to chicken soups such as Tortilla Soup with Chicken and Avocado gives readers more of soup in its most comforting form.

Accompanied by color photos that show the soups in all their glory, the global recipes are completely doable, and should appeal to a wide range of cooks. Throughout, sidebars (like "Garlic Croutons") offer useful information on techniques and ingredients; a glossary and basics section are also helpful. Though small in size, the book provides an inclusive store of superior recipes and instruction. --Arthur Boehm

I was given this book as a gift 2 years ago and I can't say enough good things about it. I was a little shy of soup making at the time, but have been so amazed that every single recipe I've made from this book has been fantastic. I attribute that to well-written recipes, they really are fool proof.
I think you'll be happier with this book if you own a hand blender, as nearly every recipe calls for some pureeing, and it is SO much easier with a hand blender.

I think that this is a great soup book. All of the soups are very accessible in the variety of ingredients that they require and the 5-8 soups that I've made have been supurb. There is a soup for every occasion, and several for every season. If you enjoy soup, like to have easy recipes on hand as well as a few that make you feel a little like a real chef, this is the book for you. One of the three recipe books that I look at on a regular basis.

That is what a coworker said after I gave her a bowl of the Tuscon Tomato soup. This is a great book. The recipies are easy and delicious. I have made 6 of the soups so far and can hardly wait to try more!

"Yo Diggity", would be the phrase that comes to mind when I'm searching through my cook books and this one catches my eye. That or "booya". I can't decide. I love soup. A lot. I like making soup too and this book has really good recipes that are easy to follow. For the recipes that call for chicken, beef or vegetable stock,...if you like homemade stock better,(who doesn't) but don't know how to make it,..HAVE NO FEAR! SOUP will teach you. It has recipes for all kinds of soups,..miso, hot and sour, shrimp bisque, chowders,.. all kinds. This book simply excites me.

I have a huge collection of cookbooks and with most of them I will only use a few of the recipes. This cookbook has stood the test of time and is truly one of my favorites. I have tried the majority of recipes in this book, they are great and easy to follow. I am constantly referring back to them. I am getting pretty well known for my delicious soups thanks to this collection of recipes. As most cooks do, I have changed some of the recipes slightly to suit my taste. I did see a few reviews talking about this being a small book. Yes, it is a small book but packed with great recipes and totally worth it. I have used this book so much that I may have to purchase another one, some of the pages are really worn out which is a sign of a great cookbook. As far as I am concerned this book is an investment!

I have been cooking for many years (40+) and have always had a special foundness for Soups, I bought this book on a lark, as I make soup quite offten and wondered what I could gain from this book. The recipes looked delicious and easy to make and the Photo's were so colorful and tempting I couldn't resist it. From French Onion and Chicken Noodle to Tuscan Tomato Soup, Greek Avgolemono, Carrot with Ginger Soup, Italian Garlic Stracciatella, Peach Soup and so on.....I found so many new ideas for preperation and new ingredients, I haven't stopped cooking Soup since this spring. I have literally cooked my way through the book, and have not found one bad recipe. INCREDIBLE FUN, INCREDIBLE RECIPES, INCREDIBLE BOOK
