I have owned this book for over a year now and it is the most used cookbook on my shelf. Every time I cook a soup from it, I get compliments and empty bowls. Most of the recipes are quick and simple to make and if you don't have the exact ingredients, still tend to work well. As a final bonus, my children's vegetable intake has doubled since starting to cook these soups. A must buy!

I have owned this book for... ooooh... well it seems like forever but I'm guessing since 1996! This is esily the most used recipe book on my shelf, and I have a few. Never have I offered a soup from this book without a chorus of praise, I've altered some of the recipes, I object to buying a chicken just to make stock for a soup for example, so I've used Chicken Oxo. Where I've made a predominantly vegetable soup which has asked for Chicken Stock I've used Green Oxo. So appreciative have my friends been of the soups from this book that I must have bought 6 or 7 copies of it just as presents. Buy it, use it, love it... but be adventurous and change the odd thing here and there and see what you think of the alterations, the book even has a grid at the back for you to record the changes you have made and your verdict on the outcome.

We now live on soup, and almost always home-made - thanks to this excellent book! The recipes are often easy to follow, and there are things for all occasions and tastes - including chocolate soup... Wouldn't be without it!

I love this book! I am an avid fan of CG soups anyway and rarely buy other brands, and while this book offers recipes of the CG soups that are usually on offer, it also has loads more fantastic, exotic and, in some cases highly unusual, recipes. I will be busy soup-making for the foreseeable future! Well done again, Covent Garden Soup!

I've sent copies of this book as gifts to all foodie family and friends including my chef son in San Francisco, where it's a fave rave. Superb recipes, easy to follow, friendly style, wish the pages wiped clean easier ....

I can only say that any foodie will be delighted and inspired by the soups in the book. You can take the theme and develop it and produce tailor made specials to suit you and your family. My favorite is the spicy peanut soup, it is a real winner. My best tip is to make a large pot of stock and freeze in meal size bags. then when you want to make a soup it only takes a short while with not too much preparation. My children love the soups and keep trying to persuade us to try new ones.

A real winner!

As you'd expect these guys know everything there is to know about soup. Whatever ingredient you've got lurking in your fridge, they've got an excellent recipe which uses it!

Loads of stunning recipes, all of which work first time. Old favourites, and other things you wouldn't have thought of. Full of inspiration!
