The team who brought us the exhilirating book, Juice!, and the irresistible collection of recipes, Ice Cream!, has now turned to Soup! Seventy recipes fill this lovely invitation to nourishing, comforting eating.
Classic Soups kick off the book, but they're never ordinary. Among them are French Onion; Mixed Mushroom; Leek and Potato; Chicken Soup with Tarragon; Pea and Ham; and Tomato.
Smooth Soups feature Broccoli, Yogurt, and Stilton Soup; GInger Pears; and Carrot with Dill and Feta Pesto;
The book tantalizes by swinging between favorites and surprises:
Chunky Soups include Minestrone; Smoked FIsh Chowder; Italian Meatball Soup with Fennel and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes;
A chapter each of Spicy Soups, Chilled Soups, and Special Occasion Soups offer recipes that are velvety smooth, sweetly chilled, or hot and spicy.
The book opens with Handy Hints and Techniques plus a look at Soup Kitchen Equipment.
The final chapter is a line-up of soup Accompaniments. The recipes are for Cheese Straws; Crostini; Walnut Pesto; Pumpkin Seed and Parmesan Wafers; and a dozen or more go-alongs. This is zesty inspiration.
