Soup and Bread Cookbook: Building Community One Pot at a Time Flexibound – October 11, 2011
"A book like this makes me think that really, I could live a lovely and fulfilling life and eat only soup." Julia Kramer, Time Out Chicago
"Martha Bayne's new book is a reflection on the cultural importance of soup as much as a cookbook...The book reflects the almost palpable enthusiasm for soup that can be felt at the [Soup & Bread] events." Julia Thiel, Chicago Reader
"Soup & Bread has been a Chicago institution since it took over wintery Wednesday nights at The Hideout...Now, the event’s organizer Martha Bayne has commemorated the event’s success with the new Soup & Bread Cookbook, a guide to some of the night’s biggest culinary successes. Featuring contributions from Stephanie Izard, Hot” Doug Sohn, and Paul Kahan, the book brings together a charming array of soup facts, recipes, and images that make readers just long for cold nights with a bowl of something starchy and pureed." The A.V. Club
"Stunning to read or just stare at for hours." Chuck Sudo, The Chicagoist
"...one of the most thought-provoking (and appetizing!) books I've picked up in a long time." —Tamar Fleishman, Baltimore Examiner
"There are oodles of recipes nine chilis alone but Bayne has added a narrative full of history and stories about soup...the book is a handsome package." Rebecca Lomax, Chicago Journal
"Recommended. We love the story and idea behind the book and its lovely design, but most importantly, it’s full of delicious-sounding recipes that are clear and easy to follow." Apartment Therapy: The Kitchn
"A significant document on the importance of food and community...It’s a book of genuine people from all angles of life sharing food and recipes with each other in an effort to help more others yet." Food on the Dole
PRAISE FOR MARTHA BAYNE'S SOUP & BREAD NIGHT:
"In the past two years, [Martha Bayne's] effort, Soup and Bread, has raised more than $10,000 from patrons and the sale of a cookbook for local hunger-relief programs." Jessica Reaves, New York Times, January 20, 2011
"In the three years since [Martha Bayne] and fellow former Chicago Reader staffer Sheila Sachs founded Soup & Bread, Bayne’s seen hundreds of different soups starting with hundreds of different, delicious broths." Amelia Levin, Chicago Sun-Times, January 11, 2011
"Kind of like the Iron Chef of soup." Centerstage Chicago
"It’s a culi-charity (has that been coined?) event designed to be low-key, easy to participate in, and fun for the community, especially in the middle of a freezing Midwest winter.” Not Eating Out in New York
"Chicago’s most laid-back, nutritious party." Grub Street Chicago

Liked the sound of this as we in the northeast are just having our first n'ester of the new year.
Loved hearing about the reasoning behind the cookbook and 'stone soup'. I also recall hearing of it while reading the fable to our kids.
This is a collection of recipes from soup kitchens in Chicago, Seattle and New York.
New England clam chowder would be my favorite. Such a variety of ethnic cooking in this collection using fresh vegetables and herbs and spices.
Each recipe has a few pages about it's origin. Love the idea of just plain homemade rolls to go along with the soup. Imagine I could add other spices and herbs for flavoring.
I'll be using this book for many meals this upcoming winter.
It's nice to read about the importance of soup and soup sharing in our cultures. Maybe we all need to slow down a bit...put all the modern technology aside even for just a moment...and enjoy the experience of making, sharing and eating soup.
I'm going to get my friends and family together to have soup as a test run for a church event. It really has inspired me to have a community meal to help others.
