Overview

At last, a full-color, easy-to-follow cookbook devoted to soups! No more searching through cookbooks to find a certain soup—all the soups you will ever want to make or eat are featured here in this stunning collection.

This comprehensive cookbook contains over 200 recipes from all around the world: from the classic Cream of Tomato to a spicy Louisiana Gumbo; a rich Italian Wild Mushroom Soup to a hot Jalapeño-style soup from Mexico. Also featured are a Caribbean Vegetable Soup with green bananas, yam and chayote squash and Moroccan Harira with lamb chickpeas and traditional spices.

Divided into six chapters, The Soup Bible includes inspiring soups for every occasion. Choose from refreshing summer soups and hearty winter warmers. Select an intensely flavored soup for a delicious appetizer or a nutritious broth for a healthy lunch or snack. Make a smooth bisque to impress your guests or cook up a chunky soup—big enough to be a meal in itself.

The introduction highlights step-by-step recipes for a range of stocks, from vegetarian to beef and Japanese to seafood, to make nutritious and delicious bases for your soups. Garnishes are suggested for the perfect finishing touches.

Each recipe in this highly illustrated book contains clearly photographed step-by-step instructions and an enticing photograph of the finished dish—which means that even the most intricate soup is within your grasp. Vegetarian soups are highlighted, so you won't have to scrutinize ingredients lists just to find a suitable recipe.

With nearly 800 color photographs, informative text, easy-to-follow steps and a superb collection of recipes, The Soup Bible is essential guide to the art of soup-making and a necessary addition to any kitchen.

I bought this for my daughter-in-law who loves to find new recipes to try. She was delighted with this book. Not only are there great recipes, but the book has beautiful pictures along with easy-to-read recipes.

I bought this cookbook for a friend. When it came, I was amazed at how nice it was. Most books of this quality cost A LOT more than what I paid. My friend was well pleased &amp; excited to try the recipes. Thanks!

I tried the pumpkin soup recipe on Thanksgiving, everyone liked it, some had seconds. Being of Czech decent, I was disappointed that the central European staple "Liver Dumpling" soup was absent. A recipe for Czech fish soup was. I have never heard of Czech fish soup. maybe I'm missing out on something good! This book would be fun to go through and try ALL the recipes, front to back!

From light to hearty, cold to hot, the soup recipes are easy to follow and taste wonderful. Chock full of lunch and supper soups, the recipes are from around the world and there are "cook's tips" for a lot of the recipes. Whether you enjoy light summer soups, or rich and creamy soups, then The Soup Bible is for you. Try it; you will like it!

This book is an absolute steal! My boyfriend and I have made 10 recipes so far, ranging from Zucchini with Dolcelatte soup to Corn and Plantain soup, and all of them have been fantastic.

The Soup Bible is a wonderful collection of soup recipes divided into six sections: light & refreshing, rich & creamy, warming winter, hearty lunch, one-pot-meals, and special occasion. The variety is excellent, and there are soups from around the world. The front section on making stocks is very helpful as it includes not only the standard vegetable, chicken and meat stocks, but also fish stock and stocks for Chinese and Japanese cooking. Each recipe comes with beautiful end-result pictures as well as pictures of some of the steps involved. The directions are clear and simple. Many of the recipes come with suggestions for variations and all of the vegetarian selections are marked. Most of the soups use easy-to-find ingredients, but the exceptions often have tips on where to find the unfamiliar items. I¿ve tried several of the recipes with no problems and delicious results. One of my personal favorites is the Tomato and Blue Cheese Soup. I¿m looking forward to cooking and eating my way through these soups.

Fabulous Borscht recipe. Also a great collection of meals for vegetarians. I have had more gourmet soups on my dinner table thanks to this great collection. You can't beat it for the price.

This book is IDENTICAL to her other book, the Soup Encyclopedia, or whatever it's called like that. The only differeces: hard cover, different title, about 2-1/2 times the size. This book is a coffee table book not functional like the other book. And despite the fact that they are truly identical -- same recipes on same pages, etc. -- this one is copyright 2004 and the other 2003, apparently just for the title. I actually like the contents, but I like them in the smaller, functional book. This 'Bible' is too big to be practical, unless you have a kitchen the size of Cleveland.
