5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book, Delicious Recipes 16 Aug 2009
We stumbled across this little treasure completely by accident, and have never looked back!

With hugely diverse soups from Creamy Courgette & Dill, Wild Mushroom with Sage, Creamy Chicken & Saffron to Malaysian Prawn Laksa, Moroccan Harira or Spicy Sausage & Bean soup, as well as the more unusual chilled soups to fruit base soups, there is genuinely something here for everyone. Our favourite sections are "Meal in a bowl", "20 minute treats" and "Asian flavours". The Thai/Vietnamese recipes in particular are so simple yet authentic, and all ingredients can be found in most supermarkets.

We are working our way through every recipe one by one, and have genuinely found them all to be so delicious that we've given up "scoring" them for future reference! This is a great find, and is an excellent book for anyone from the novice cook wanting a wholesome meal to the home chef looking to make a deliciously different start to any dinner party.

My only comment would be that "500 soups" is a wee bit of a misnomer. There are actually 90 base soups, each with 5-6 variations, but it's still impressive and is definitely value for money!!

Good soups, ingredients are easy to obtain (unlike some soup books), clear instructions and nice photo's. All in all a welcome addition to my extending soup books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 14 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great little book, I lost this once during moving house and missed it soo much I purchased another one. I love the fact that it gives you a basic soup recipe and then suggests several variations. It is a absolute must for any soup lover. I currently have organic veggies delivered and find that I often have some left over, this book provides me with lots of ideas on how to use them effectively in different soups.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book at a great price 2 Jan 2010
What a fab book. Contains so many different recipes under different headers, i.e cold/summer soups, low fat etc. Never realised soup was so easy to make, much better than buying it in tins? Hooked on making soups myself and trying out all the different variations. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 27 Nov 2011
By Jo
This book has a great selection of soups for all tastes. I bought it having borrowed a friends copy - I was using it so much I didn't want to give it back! The portion sizes are big enough (unlike so many recipes in books) and I have thoroughly enjoyed making several of the soups so far. The pictures are also very appealing and pretty close to the final product. I would definitely recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars As what they say 2 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First, I bought this in second hand, but was like new, the book is nice and had many recipes, but as I always saw in cook books, there are many similars, there is a section called variations, where the put in a full page for one soup small changes that you can do... (90 pages of variations), but well, do you really imagine 500 soups being all differents? :) still didnt tried any, but I was reading the recipe and most of them sounds pretty good..
