Previously owned the 1999 edition, which I did not find as inspiring as the 2007 revised version. This is an excellent book, beautifully produced. The photography is absolutely superb - a joy to see. I now have a list of about 50 soups to make!! Best soup book on the market, by a long way.
I have only recently just bought my copy of the soup bible, and believe me if you like making fresh soup rather than having it out of a can then this is the one for you. The recipes are fantastic and easy to follow with great colour photos that are very helpful and certainly whet the appetite. Whats more all the techniques are explained step by step and all recipes use fresh ingredients which makes for wonderful soup. Love soup, love this book! Gaz
