Preface

Introduction

Many writers and that elusive, anonymous source known as "an old proverb" get credited for having mused that, "Of soup and love, the first is best." Now that's a recommendation that even the most savvy modern marketer would have trouble topping. It's surely a clear indication of how popular and widespread the concept is, how universal the appeal of soup is and how important soup is deemed to be in achieving personal happiness! "Really?" you ask. "Isn't that a bit much?"

Well, think about it. A good soup does not let you down. It nourishes your heart as well as your tummy and spreads a feeling of satisfaction and contentment as each mouthful is savored and swallowed. A soup warms you up on a winter's day and cools you down in the sweltering heat of summer. After eating a bowl or more of delectable soup, you are guaranteed to feel better than before you ate it. If you desire soup in a hurry, you can quickly have it, and if, having made a pot of soup you decide to "put it on ice" until later, you can do that too. Is it possible to say that you can get all these satisfactions from love? Probably not!

For all you skeptics, perhaps the best way to prove the adage is for you to start making beautiful soups and seeing the effects they have on family and friends. Let 125 Best Soup Recipes be your guide and inspiration; then, with time, you'll find you gain the confidence to combine your own ingredients into soups featuring your favorite foods and flavors.

With some easy-to-learn basic knowledge about soup making, you can build a wide-ranging repertoire. And the good news about soups is that it will not take days out of your life to make them. The old-fashioned image of a long-simmering stock pot, bubbling for hours if not days — to produce a satisfying meal, is gone. Today's soups appeal to the carefree cook because they are quick to make, well suited to our speed — driven lifestyles and our desire for the freshness that fast prepping produces. This make-it-quickly method, which defines most contemporary cooking, retains the foods' best flavors and nourishing properties much more effectively than cooking for several hours would do.

There is an almost limitless number of soups waiting to be made. Some are "thin" such as stocks, bouillons and consommés; some are "thick" and created from stock and pureed vegetables or from stock and grains, pulses, rice or pastas; and some are chunky, showcasing bite-sized pieces of meat, poultry, fish and vegetables, making a meal in a bowl. Some are everyday fare while others are elegant enough for entertaining. Some are piping hot, others achingly cold; some are heavy with fats, others slimmed and trimmed. Complementary garnishes and tantalizing accompaniments provide value-added bonuses. Flavors, textures and looks all get star billing in a beautifully made soup, one that keeps you coming back for more. There's lifetime security knowing you can repeat the pleasure whenever you get the urge.

Now, that's more than you can say about love!
