Hamlyn is a trusted well-known name when it comes to cook books and although this series is rather small, being only pocket sized, they are jam-packed with tasty soup recipes that I found easy to follow and great tasting. In fact, I cannot stop making them!
From speedy soups, healthy soups and soups from around the world, this book covers a tasty meal for all your tastebuds. And with Winter around, this is just the right time of year for the Winter Warmer selection. Although, with our British weather, that could almost be any time of the year! However, joking aside, there are even chilled soups and an old-fashioned "London Particular", a favourite of mine.
Layout of Book
The recipes are straightforward and easy to understand. The ingredients (metric and imperial) and servings are in a column on the left hand side of the page, with the method next to it. The facing this, on the opposite side of the page is a bright full colour picture of the finished soup. And they are absolutely tempting pictures!
All in all, this is a great addition to my cook book shelf, and I am very keen to collect more of these pocket-sized tasty treats!
For £3 it's a massive bargain and you really can't go wrong - I've already gone through it and post it marked all of the soups in numerical order of how I want to cook them! Bring on delicious lunchtimes! :D
|Length: 1:22 Mins|
The 240 page book is broken down into the following sections:
Introduction - 10 pages
Speedy Soups -38 pages (18 recipes)
Chilled Soups - 22 pages (10 recipes)
Winter Warmers - 42 pages (20 recipes)
Something Special - 42 pages (20 recipes)
Healthy Soups - 34 pages (16 recipes)
Around The World - 42 pages (20 recipes)
Index - 4 pages
As you'll see from the above, only 104 actual 'full recipes' are included in the book. However, the book gets around this by detailing that if desired you can add a few additional ingredients into many of the recipes and then count this as another recipe (i.e. for the 'Oriental Mussel Soup' there's a small additional paragraph at the end that tells you that you can add saffron into it to make it 'Saffron Mussel Soup'). Hence two soup recipes on one page! Bit of a cheat really!
Each recipe is set over two facing pages of the book. The first page contains the ingredients, how many people it serves, preparation time, cooking time, and easy-to-follow instructions for how to create the soup.Read more ›

I love this little soup cookbook. It is fairly small in physical size but it contains 200 recipes - a decent amount for any cookbook.
The book is split into six sections which include:
- speedy soups
- chilled soups
- winter warmers
- something special
- healthy soups
- around the world
I like that there is one recipe to a page and that every soup recipe is accompanied by a very clear, full colour photograph which presents the soup so that it just calls to you to make it.
Each recipe is straightforward and easy to follow. There is a clear list of ingredients which are measured in both metric and imperial. It tells you how many portions you can expect from the recipe and how long both the preparation and cooking time will take. The instructions are clearly written and easy to follow.
There are so many delightful recipes in this book that it is hard to pick out particular favourites, but near the top has to be both the tomato and balsamic vinegar soup and the sweetcorn and celery soup.
As well as the recipes there is also an informative introduction which explains soup terms such as consommé, broth, chowder etc. It also provides easy to follow stock recipes for beef, chicken, fish and vegetable stocks.
The paper has a shiny coating which makes it easy to wipe if you get any splashes on it. Unfortunately if you accidentally spill oil or grease onto the page and don't remove it quickly enough it will leave an oily mark, but I think that is the case for most cookbooks.Read more ›
