Great little cook book.,
This review is from: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook 200 Super Soups (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)Excellent series of cook books. Mostly simple straightforward recipes that sound good and look great in the photo's.
The book is actually 100 recipes with a variation of each, giving 200. For example, Cream of Sweetcorn Soup's variation is Cream of Sweet Potato and Sweetcorn Soup, and it's as simple as swapping the potato for sweet potato fried in a little onion and butter, the rest is the same. Not all variations are that simple, but small changes can create a very different end result.
Out of all the books in the series I have read, around 10 so far, the variations in this book were more elaborate than in other books, giving almost a full 200 separate recipes. My example above really was the simplest one I could find.
Prep times are given and range from 10 to 30 mins, most being around 15-20 mins.
Sections are speedy soups (38 pages), chilled soups (22 pages), winter warmers (42 pages), something special (42 pages), healthy soups (34 pages) and around the world (42 pages).
Great book at a bargain price.
