5.0 out of 5 stars The Celebrity Chef of Soups, December 12, 2007
This review is from: New England Soup Factory Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes from the Nation's Best Purveyor of Fine Soup (Hardcover)
Move out of the way Charlie Trotter, Patick O'Connell, Todd English, Bob Kincaid, and James McNair, the Celebrity Chef of Soups - Margorie Druker of Boston's New England Soup Factory has published her first cookbook with recipes that will knock you out. I found this cookbook by accident but my family and friends have just loved the 4 soups we have tried so far. The Pumpkin & White Bean soup had my dinner friends clamoring for seconds; indeed, it is the best pumpkin based soup you will ever enjoy. I made the Pasta Fagioi with beef short ribs instead of pork on a cold Sunday, and it wowed our group of 10 friends so much that they stopped watching the Redskins football game and quietly devoured their Fagioli - then asked for more. I am a weekend gourmet chef with 20+ years of kitchen experience - the Veal & Portobello Mushroom Stew was fabulous, again, the best veal stew I have made. It was worth following the recipe! I have given some copies of this cookbook to friends who cook because they will appreciate the ingenuity of Druker. As to the celebrity chefs out there, and I have many of their books, their soup recipes don't hold a candle to this cookbook.
