'Soup Glorious Soup' by Annie Bell goes from dinner party sophisticated (delicate consomme served in wine glasses) to supper sneaky (seven ways to sex up Heinz tomato soup), with great taste bud-tingling ideas for savoury side orders, such as pan-fried goat's cheese toasties. In between are over 100 bowl-brimming recipes which prove that soup is not just a dish with heart, but can be the satisfying heart of a meal. --Mail on Sunday YOU Magazine
In her new book, Soup Glorious Soup, cookery writer Annie Bell turns her expert hand to her favourite dish, offering more than 100 hundred recipes, from the humble to the elegant. Based on walking down a traditional row of shops, the chapters include The Greengrocer, Fishmonger, Butcher, Baker and Cheesemonger and showcase the best of their products. The final section of the book offers a selection of inventive extras and embellishments, as well as croutons and rarebits, and imaginative modern twists, plus the key to all good soup making the stock. --Choice Magazine
The other day I was sent Annie Bell's new book Soup Glorious Soup and I can thoroughly recommend it as a new addition to your cookbook collection, or as a good foodie Christmas present. Annie is particularly good at giving readers ideas for extra accompaniments and embellishments which can really enhance the flavours and character of a soup. --The Independent
