There is a soup for every occasion, and this book contains over 200 useful recipes for them--all explained and deceptively easy to make. Marguerite Patten draws on her wide experience and tours of the world in search for new recipes, as well as traditional favorites. Soups ranging from jou wantze t'ang (meatball soup), vichyssoise and Arabic bean soup to the farmhouse soups which reflect British traditions. There are recipes for soups which can prepared, cooked and served in 30 minutes, economic vegetable soups and soups for special occasions. The book also provides ideas for interesting garnishes and breads to accompany homemade soup.
