I usually don't read introductions to cookbooks, but Gunst's description of how this book came to be is an interesting read. Faced with an unreasonably harsh and long New England winter, Gunst found herself having soup for breakfast, lunch, dinner and "afternoon-pick-me-ups." With all the winter isolation ahead, Gunst and a friend (aptly named Hope) created a "Second Sunday Soup Swap Supper" event for a group of neighbors and thus a new soup communing group was born.

Soup Swap contains instructions for hosting your own soup swap party and three adhesive stickers to label your soup jars or containers. There is a section on creating your own broths and stocks along with a collection of suggested side dishes, garnishes and toppings. Along the way, Gunst gives tips on how to transport and store the soups. This book is definitely a great collection and includes sections on vegetable soups, chicken and turkey soups, meat soups, and seafood soups and chowders. Most recipes are accompanied by beautiful photographs.

Stay tuned for a celebration of this book at Coobook Club's #SoupSwapParty starting September 11, 2016.
