4.0 out of 5 stars My soup bible!, 13 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Soup Kitchen (Hardcover)
I have owned this book for a few years now but have recently rediscovered it. (Am on a bit of health kick and eating LOTS of soup!) I can totally understand the couple of negative reviews this book has received. The lack of pictures of the actual soups is annoying (lots of lovely pictures of ingredients but not the finished products) and that always chalks up a big black mark with me as pictures are the key to an inspiring cookbook. Also some of the recipes are irritatingly "cheffy" and use ingredients which your average home cook just won't have access to. (Yes, you Heston and your latue de mar seaweed!)However, these grumbles aside, the vast majority of recipes in this book are actually pretty simple but somehow seem to elevate themselves above your average humble bowl of soup. I am a particular fan of Thomasina Miers' Tortilla Soup, Skye Gyngell's Cauliflower Soup with Dolcelatte & Spiced Pear Relish, and Sophie Conran's Root Soup with Cheese Scones (cheese scones hot out of the oven are a revelation!)If you are looking to buy one book on soup, then let it be this (plus 70% of profits go to charity so you can't really go wrong.)
