Overview


The Soup and Bread Cookbook aims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring — why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based "soup swaps." In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Soup & Bread] has grown to a weekly event feeding 100 people and raising thousands of dollars to fight hunger...In her new book, Bayne shares the recipes that have warmed those many souls." —Joe Gray, Chicago Tribune

"A book like this makes me think that really, I could live a lovely and fulfilling life and eat only soup." —Julia Kramer, Time Out Chicago

"Martha Bayne's new book is a reflection on the cultural importance of soup as much as a cookbook...The book reflects the almost palpable enthusiasm for soup that can be felt at the [Soup & Bread] events." —Julia Thiel, Chicago Reader

"Soup & Bread has been a Chicago institution since it took over wintery Wednesday nights at The Hideout...Now, the event’s organizer Martha Bayne has commemorated the event’s success with the new Soup & Bread Cookbook, a guide to some of the night’s biggest culinary successes. Featuring contributions from Stephanie Izard, “Hot” Doug Sohn, and Paul Kahan, the book brings together a charming array of soup facts, recipes, and images that make readers just long for cold nights with a bowl of something starchy and pureed." —The A.V. Club

"Stunning to read or just stare at for hours." —Chuck Sudo, The Chicagoist

"...one of the most thought-provoking (and appetizing!) books I've picked up in a long time." —Tamar Fleishman, Baltimore Examiner

"There are oodles of recipes — nine chilis alone — but Bayne has added a narrative full of history and stories about soup...the book is a handsome package." —Rebecca Lomax, Chicago Journal

"Recommended. We love the story and idea behind the book and its lovely design, but most importantly, it’s full of delicious-sounding recipes that are clear and easy to follow." —Apartment Therapy: The Kitchn

"A significant document on the importance of food and community...It’s a book of genuine people from all angles of life sharing food and recipes with each other in an effort to help more others yet." —Food on the Dole

PRAISE FOR MARTHA BAYNE'S SOUP & BREAD NIGHT:

"In the past two years, [Martha Bayne's] effort, Soup and Bread, has raised more than $10,000 from patrons and the sale of a cookbook for local hunger-relief programs." —Jessica Reaves, New York Times, January 20, 2011

"In the three years since [Martha Bayne] and fellow former Chicago Reader staffer Sheila Sachs founded Soup & Bread, Bayne’s seen hundreds of different soups starting with hundreds of different, delicious broths." —Amelia Levin, Chicago Sun-Times, January 11, 2011

"Kind of like the Iron Chef of soup." —Centerstage Chicago

"It’s a culi-charity (has that been coined?) event designed to be low-key, easy to participate in, and fun for the community, especially in the middle of a freezing Midwest winter.” —Not Eating Out in New York

"Chicago’s most laid-back, nutritious party." —Grub Street Chicago

Library Journal
If you enjoy community cookbooks, check out this thoughtfully designed compilation from Soup and Bread, a weekly soup dinner and fund-raiser held at Chicago's Hideout bar. Food writer Bayne has gathered stories and recipes from a colorful cast of writers, designers, musicians, and chefs, and she succeeds in preserving their individual voices. Here you'll find culturally diverse, vegan-friendly, and technically accessible soups perfect for feeding a crowd or stocking your freezer. This book's successful balance of utilitarian and gourmet recipes will please many, though its small size and tight binding will frustrate readers who like their cookbooks to lie flat.

    I found this cookbook to be really useful. If you enjoy soup and bread meals on cold winter evenings you'll appreciate
    this collection of recipes. And I love the idea of a soup swap---this I must try!
