This doesn't mean that if I want a special chowder, I won't go to Jasper White's book '50 Chowders', since all the recipes I have made from White's book have been simply out of this world good. It also doesn't mean I won't go to my little book of vegetarian soups by Paulette Mitchell or to other little books of soups by Michael Congdon and by the New York staff of `Daily Soup' or even the `Twelve Months of Monastery Soups', since I may be especially interested in a vegetarian soup, a thick full meal soup, or an especially light soup for July, since all of these are good soup books. I will also still go to Daniel Boulud or Tyler Florence for their chestnut soup recipes, even though the CIA includes a recipe for chestnut soup. But, I will pay very close attention to the CIA's chapter on creamed soups before I make chestnut soup again.
The only real competition for literary soup supremacy is James Peterson's `Splendid Soups'.Read more ›
With a Cuisinart or similar appliance, none of these things are very hard, especially if you keep stocks around. If you don't, buy a package of stock at your grocery store, which I do when I don't have the time to roast and simmer. I've seen more specialized books (there's one very good one devoted to chowders, whose name escapes me right now), but this is the best general-soup book I've used.
If you only buy one cookbook, make this it, you'll never be sorry.
The instructions are pretty clear and easy to follow, and it's just generally a nice book to have around.

OK book, some good recipes. I must say I was somehow disappointed, I expected different recipes, not the same old ones, but it is still a good book. Thanks.Published 2 months ago by E. P. Loeber
