5.0 out of 5 stars If you could only have one book about soup - this is the one to have., 13 Mar 2014

Marguerite Patten is a national treasure. This book is crammed with recipes for every type of soup you could imagine. But more than that, she has explained every technique, how it is done, why it is done in a particular way, and how you can change ingredients in any recipe. She is not averse to suggesting the use of tinned ingredients when you are short of time, and how the microwave can be used in the preparation of some of the soups.
There are soups for all seasons, for family meals and for more formal dinner parties. Vegetarians and vegans will find many of the recipes are ideal for them. Patten also gives lots of ideas for garnishing the soups.

Unlike many of the 'celebrity chef' type cookery books which are so popular these days, there are no carefully 'styled' glossy shots of the soups, - no lifestyle commentary, just a wealth of practical information from someone who really knows her subject and how to convey it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, 15 July 2013

This review is from: The Basic Basics Soups Handbook: All You Need to Know to Make Delicious Soups and Broths (Paperback)
I needed a basic book that is simple to follow. I could burn a salad on any kitchen. This book is brilliant. So easy to understand and follow. I love it. It's not filled with all fancy stuff so if that's what you want go elsewhere. If you want good solid recipes and instructions for delicious hearty soups then this is for you. It's a great place to start for people like me who really don't manage to do anything right in the kitchen. I've made a couple already and they were delicious. Would definitely recommend this book.

This review is from: The Basic Basics Soups Handbook: All You Need to Know to Make Delicious Soups and Broths (Paperback)
Perfectly useful for us, we make qite a lot of soup in the winter time.
We grow out own vegetables so it is a good way of using up surplus veg.
