I agree with the rave reviews of the recipes. I bought my first New Covent Garden Soup book because, although I love cooking, I had naver made a soup. I fell in love with the first recipe I tried and it wasn't long before I was in possesion of another in the series.
Hence, when I saw this production, I had to get it. There are a lote of recipes I haven't already got and I like the idea of recipes that are seasonal. In, fact, I have just made the chicken and asparagus soup - delicious.
So why only three stars? Well, because this should be a quality product. However, there are recipes that use ingredients that are not in the ingredient list, there are listed ingredients that are not used in the recipes, typos - shoddy, careless and very frustrating. Okay, so you can figure out what to do with the ingredients that don't figure in the method (at least i have been able to so far) but such carelessness is unforgivable.
