There were many good soup books published in 2008, but this one was my favorite because of its variety and creativity. There are 300 soups in here to choose from, and many of them would make a perfect meal, perhaps with some crusty bread and a tossed green salad. Given the current economic climate, soup for supper is an excellent idea.
Desert Leaf - Lois Freedman
Ten chapters cover soul nurturing, with soups for every season, from traditional comfort food to exotic adventures in a bowl. Tips are included with the 300 recipes: San Marzano tomatoes, imported from Italy, are thought by many to be the best canned tomatoes in the world. Mushrooms will be much happier if stored in your refrigerator in a paper bag. In the "Gilding the Lily" chapter there is even a brownie crouton recipe that can be used for this rich and easy luscious recipe from the "Just Dessert Soups" chapter. How about this for a midnight snack!
TCM Reviews - Tami Brady
I've never been much of a soup person. That is, until about a month and a half ago when I got this insatiable craving for soup. Suddenly, I can't seem to get enough. About two weeks into my soup phase, I ordered 300 Sensational Soups thinking maybe I could make some soup and skip the canned stuff. Being as I never really liked soup, I was a bit intimidated at first so I just started making whatever made me salivate while reading. Then, I got a bit more adventurous as I came to realize how easy it was to make these delicious recipes. I can't see myself buying canned soup anymore — especially when there are some really tasty things I can create in half an hour to forty-five minutes. When it comes to soup, nothing compares to homemade.

Preface

Introduction

Soup is not just another meal — it's comfort in a bowl, love on a spoon, satisfaction simmering on the stove. Nothing makes a house feel more like a home than a pot of freshly made soup. And all this goodness comes together so easily. Whether you make it all from scratch, starting from the stock up, or you purchase stock and a few other ingredients for a quick and easy meal, soup will never fail you.

While 300 soups is a lot of recipes, there is no end to the possible combinations. You'll find that many of the recipes can be made with items that are already in your pantry or refrigerator and can be cooked and on your table in under an hour.

Our book begins with the Stock Basics chapter, which has recipes for the foundation of all soups: stocks. Here we guide you through the ins and outs of making your own stock. You'll be surprised at how easy it is and what a flavorful difference it makes. We include many different kinds of stocks, such as mushroom, veal and roasted vegetable, as well as the more familiar chicken and beef stock recipes. We hope you'll experiment, using some of the more unusual stocks in place of beef or chicken stock in your soups.

To make the book easy to use, we've divided the soup recipes among 10 chapters, such as Fresh from the Garden Vegetable Soups, Hearty Soups for Meat Lovers and Chow Down Chowders, so you'll always know where to turn when you crave a particular type of soup.

Because soup is embraced by every culture, we've included a comprehensive selection of international soups: iconic soups such as French Onion, Mulligatawny, Pasta Fagiole and Tortilla Soup, as well as some you might not be familiar with but will soon come to love, such as Vatapá, a Brazilian black bean soup, or African Peanut Soup, made with coconut milk and sweet potatoes.

While you may be accustomed to thinking of soup as an appetizer or a main course, soup also makes an excellent dessert! Our Just Dessert Soups chapter includes more than 20 recipes for mouthwatering dessert soups made with fresh fruits and chocolate.

And because we think almost every soup benefits from a garnish, we've included an entire chapter of toppings and garnishes called Gilding the Lily. For instance, Split Pea Soup is wonderful on its own, but when paired with Pumpernickel Croutons, it becomes something truly special. We hope you'll look at this chapter every time you make soup and experiment with all the possibilities.

We loved feeding our families these comforting soups, and we hope that once you begin cooking with our recipes, these soups will become your family's new favorites as well.

    Love this soup cookbook! You will too.

    My husband loves soup so I got this book to try some different recipes. He is in 7th heaven and I'm happy not making the same old, same old soups. I love trying new recipes and this one fits the bill with practical and innovative recipes.

    300 Sensational Soups

    This cookbook is wonderful. My husband and I have tried at least four of the recipes, and one is better than the next. We used the section in the back of the book for embellishments and have just made the spaetzels so far. The crouton recipes look wonderful, as well, but we have not tried those yet. We would highly recommend this soup cookbook.
