'What could be better than a recipe book from New Covent Garden Food Co? It's not a book of recipes for the soups they sell, but a series of recipes from their staff which will take you, as the title says, through all occasions. As a traditionalist I did wonder if I would really take to soup at breakfast or as a pudding, but I was soon won round... Some recipes are absolute gems - simple to make and delicious to eat.'
There are so many occasions when soup is just the right dish that New Covent Garden felt compelled to share some more of their secrets in this fourth collection of their recipes. Soup for All Occasions will provide you with novel ways to nourish children, satisfy a huge family gathering or impress dinner guests. A handful of recipes in this collection stretch the definition of a soup. Some are one-pot meals; others desserts or even breakfasts. But the majority are still what New Covent Garden do best - soups that are perfect for nutricious lunches, family picnics, Christmas parties or informal dinners. You'll find inspiration here if you're stuck for a romantic idea for Valentine's Day, if you'll be spending the afternoon freezing on a touchline or if Mum's just announced she's coming round to visit. Whatever the occasion, there's a soup to match: easy to make, good to eat and fun to serve.
