This review is from: 200 Super Soups: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook (Hamlyn All Colour Cookery) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This does very much what it says on the tin. The pictures are lovely, the instructions clear and there are some very tempting recipes. Even the print size, for once, is easy to read, and the paper is good, sturdy quality, important in a kitchen book that gets a lot of use. My only cavil is the organisation, into sections like "speedy soups", "winter warmers", "something special", "around the world" and others. In the first place, several soups could fit into two or even three of these. I think a more sensible way to organise would have been in terms of ingredients - vegetarian, meat-based, fish-based etc. But this is a minor point against a very good resource. It doesn't expect you to have a stockpot on the go and is good at suggesting alternative ingredients, so the recipes are very versatile. Very cheap, for the quality.
