Some of the recipes require out of the ordinary ingredients and certainly can't qualify as quick preparation. But once you've mastered a whole pot of soup made from fresh from the farm ingredients, you can parcel it out as the week progresses or have a satisfying meal for a slew of family and friends.
We love the idea from one of the book's many contributors to host an annual Soup Day for your family, any designated day of your choice during the year to invite family members to bring their favorite soup for a day of feasting.
Wouldn't the world be a happier and more peaceful place if everyone spent more time cooking, serving up and just enjoying soup! The Soup & Bread Cookbook will inspire you to get the soup bowls off the shelf more often.
This book weaves a great narrative with fantastic soups. We're working on our own Soup & Bread in our community.
So, even though it's not that straightforward a cook book it's full of information and great recipes! Enjoy!
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.
