Overview

The definitive collection of recipes for soup lovers everywhere.

A good soup nourishes the heart as well the stomach, spreading a feeling of satisfaction and contentment. Hot soup is warming on a winter day, while cold soup is just as welcome in the heat of summer.

There are 50 international soups, including Vietnamese pho, Italian wedding soup, and Middle Eastern harira. Soups from the sea include such favorites as snapper in Asian broth with habañero and shrimp, and shrimp and pea soup with lemongrass. Each recipe also includes tips and techniques along with garnishing ideas. As well, there are many creative variations and serving suggestions.

There is also the Just (Soup) Desserts chapter, which features 20

Packed with easy-to-use recipes that produce reliable and flavorful results. Beginners will find [it] easy to follow, and the books should stoke the imaginations of veterans.

Journal Now
I found a lot of new and interesting ideas when I leafed through the new 300 Sensational Soups. These recipes cover a lot of ground... But what really grabbed my attention was the wealth of creative recipes.

From chilled soups to chowders, this book is filled to the brim with delicious recipes. A personal note to Hot Guacamole Soup with Cumin and Cilantro: Your days of missing from our soup repertoire are numbered.

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.

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.

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.
