Hands down, this is my absolute favorite cookbook. That is saying a lot considering I study cooking and own cookbooks written by legends like Charlie Trotter, Thomas Kellar and Joel Robuchon.

What makes this cookbook stand out amongst all the others is the fact that I have made every recipe in the book and liked them all. Soups are a fabulous item to keep on hand in the freezer at all times. I like to make 2 soups per month and then freeze the leftovers. (I have a quart or two of the Artichoke B

Truly delicious recipes. However, they lose a point for ingredient count and another point for calorie count. Anybody can make good soup with that much cream and cheese.

However, the flu-chasing chicken soup is awesome!
My husband bought me this for a dollar. I wish he hadn't. The recipes look so delicious, but sadly due to severe dietary restrictions I can't eat them. It's very depressing.
I've had this cookbook for a while but haven't cooked from it that much. Part of that is the way it's organized: some chapters are by main ingredients ("A Chicken in Every Pot", "Say Cheese, Please"), some by type of soup ("Championship Chowders", "Childhood Favorites"), and then there are also chapters by season ("Autumn Flavors", "Winter's Brew", "Spring In a Bowl", "Summer Soothers"). This means you have to look in multiple places to find a simple recipe -- is gazpacho in with "Tomato Teasers ...more
I've just purchased and read the book, so have only had time to make one recipe so far. The Corn and Cheese Chowder is delicious! Easy to make and with ingredients that are not difficult to find.

I can't wait to try other recipes--they all sound wonderful. The instructions are easy to follow and the color photographs are beautiful. There are recipes for sandwiches and a few signature desserts as well.
The only bad thing about this book is--I may have to purchase it (I read almost all my books from the local library first). The soups in this book just make my mouth water even to read the ingredients and see the photos. Well, can't that be said of any great cookbook? Wonderful photos. Great detail about all the tips this restauranteur uses in her own Boston-based soup restaurants. She swears by making your own stock--to use store-bought just doesn't yield the same results. Her instructions on v ...more
This is a solidly good collection of soup recipes. We cooked from it for cook book club and every recipe turned out great with very few changes to be made in the future. Try the eggplant parm, indonesian carrot, lima and barley, porcini and pumpkin yellow split pea. Delicious!
This book is PACKED with soup recipes. And a few sides/salads/sandwiches to complement the soup. But really, it's all about the soup. Going to try a few recipes & then update as needed but my required photo minimum for cookbooks is met, and the recipes seem to be pretty varied & interesting.
This cookbook offers a surprising array of flavors and textures in the form of soup--from light first-course soups to hearty soups to be eaten as meals. Lots of more-sophisticated takes on typical go-to soups. The recipes make large batches, if that's what you need.
The soups recipes are yummy and she also suggests different things to serve with the soups. The recipes for the sandwiches, spreads, etc. are also part of the cook book.
I know that I am not going to have time to make any of these soups before the book is due back to the library. It would be worthwhile checking it out again, as several of the soups looked very good.

I am basing my 4 star rating on the varied selection of soups, the beautiful pictures and all the helpful tips.
Delicious sounding recipes and wonderful pictures. Looking forward to cooler weather so I can try some of these.

Yum, yum and yum

I love to make soup and I was planning dinner parties for friends as I was reading this lovely cookbook.
Some interesting recipes in this book. Definitely will be trying them this winter!
Oh, Yum! Fall is upon us and every Sunday is soup making day! I love this season and this is a fabulous book of recipes that will keep you warm all fall and winter. Enjoy!

Update: I've made 9 different soups from this book; every one fantastic. I don't believe there is a bad recipe in this book. And most recipes serve 10-12 so it lasts the week. Soo delicious!!
I can't wait to try some of these soup recipes. Need to go grocery shopping.

Well, I made the artichoke bisque tonight, and I thought it was very yummy.

I had to return this to the library sooner than I wanted, but I'm definitely going to check it out again when I have more time, so that I can try more of the recipes.
I make a lot of soup. And now I will make more!

:) Homemade stock shows up in pretty much every recipe!
:( Cream shows up in most, and tomato and wine show up in many, recipes.
:| I didn't know what a bisque technically is, and I do now, but not because the book told me clearly.
Not sure if "currently reading" is correct category. Currently browsing through and making myself hungry. Corn and roasted red pepper chowder is one recipe that Jason would make with me. On my own I'll probably try cauliflower, potato, and cheese soup and others.
I already tried one recipe from this book and it was delicious. There are great soup, salad and sandwich recipe in this book. I want to recheck it out in the summer to try some of the cold soups that would use the produce from our garden.
Truthfully, I haven't made a recipe from this book. But they all sound good and pretty simple. I'm just gearing up for this fall and winter in Seattle, when warm soup and warm bread will probably be on the menu a few times a week.
The recipes are interesting; the text limited. I have made two of the soups - one was bland and the other was very good. I will have to keep trying!
I've been cooking and this is an interesting sidetrack, a bit folksy on the narrative but then it gives personality to the soups.

Looks like some great soups in this one. So far I mad the bacon cheddar corn chowder. Wow! One of my families favorites already.
