5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, and easy-to-use book ! Jan. 27 2014
By Jo
I disagree with the first reviewer. I think this book is fantastic. I've tried many recipes, and all soups so far are excellent! This book has pictures - and dedicates 1 page per recipe. The ingredients are simple, and the steps are simple too.
If you want a soup bible - this is the book !

4.0 out of 5 stars Soup Queen Jan. 19 2012
I am an avid soup maker and I love this book. There are several different recipes for each basic ingredient, such as pumpkin or mushroom and so on, which i find really terrific because often soup books will have only one recipe to try. The recipes are really tastey too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper, But Not Worth It May 3 2011
By Seven
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book instead of another one, just because the bood had more recipes and it was $4.00 cheaper that the other one I was considering.
But they make the print so small, that it makes it unpleasant to read it and use.
Apart from that, of course it has recipes that I like and some that I don't care for - it is just like another cookbook.
However, I endded up buying the other one that I had in mind in the first place.
Spent the money twice.
Not very smart.
If you don't mind the small print, it is an OK value. It has pictures for every recipe as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Soup Book! Sept. 4 2006
By Denise H - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book. Its loaded with pictures of each soup. The ingredients are all easy to find. The recipes are 4-6 servings, so you can make a small batch easily or double it for larger batches. Definately worth 5 stars. I just made my first soup and its delicious. This book is going to get me through the long cold winter with yummy, warming soups.

You will definately enjoy this book. Even though I have only made one soup as of this writing, I can just tell that the layout of the book, the easy to following instructions, and pictures make this book a great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best ever lives up to it's title May 20 2006
By Sonia Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
The book contains a complete guide to ingredients and how to use

them. It also gives step-by-step instructions for making your own

stocks from vegetables, chicken, beef, fish and shellfish. There are also instructions on making the creative garnishes they show

throughout. At the bottom of every recipe you will find a the

complete nutritional information listed.

The Contents:

Introduction, which is quite thorough and then a listing of and information on:

Vegetables, legumes, meat & poultry, fish, shellfish, pasta &

noodles, herbs & spices, other flavorings, equipment & techniques, making stocks, thickening soups and garnishes.

Light & Refreshing Soups, Smooth Vegetable Soups, Chuncky Vegetable Soups, Legume Soups, Pasta & Noodle Soups, Chicken & Duck Soups, Meat Soups, Fish Soups, Shellfish Soups

One of the features I appreciate very much is that they show you with photos, such things as how to clean and prepare ingredients, such as raw prawns or squid.....not that I would ever prepare squid...but there you have it if you need it! ;-)

My first try from this book was the Castillian Garlic Soup - I already have several recipes for garlic soup from different regions of Spain, but this one wins overall....!

No step is taken for granted, each recipe in the book will guide you all the way from begining to end, so whether you're a newbie in the kitchen or an experienced cook, it guarantees the end results to be spectacular.

Except that the books are so big and heavy to carry around, I do like this series of Hermes House cookbooks very much. I have resorted to making copies of the pages where the recipes I'm interested in are located and take that to the kitchen instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book with gourmet soup recipes March 30 2011
By tahoe23 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a beautiful book with a picture of the finished product for every soup recipe. Many of the recipes have 2 to 6 additional pictures showing you how to make the soup. This book is for more gourmet and time consuming versus basic soup recipes but it also contains classics such as chicken noodle and many varieties of vegetable. Soups are categorized by Chilled, Light and Refreshing, Hot and Spicy, Creamy Vegetable, Chunky Vegetable, Winter Warming, Legume, Pasta, Noodle, Tofu, Chicken and Duck, Meat, Fish, Shellfish, Egg and Cheese, One-Pot and Soups for Entertaining. There isn't an index in the front or for each section so you need to flip through to find the soup you want to choose. Good index by ingredients in the back though.

Bottom of the page for each recipe contains nutritional information including calories, protein, carbs, fat and saturated fat, cholesterol, calcium, fiber and sodium. No total time for the recipe is listed so you need to read through to determine prep and cooking/simmering time. Note that the book is published in the UK so some of the ingredients need to be translated to the US word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Dec 13 2008
By Gabriel Ostriker - Published on Amazon.com
Since my fiancee and I received this book a year ago for Christmas, it has revolutionized our cooking. We now find that we use up all the bowls in the cupboard before we even fill half of the dishwasher. It's a real problem! Seriously, though, the soups in this book are fantastic. So far we've made fifteen or twenty of them, and I think there was only one we didn't care for. Several of them have been among the best soups we've ever had. The book would be worth the price for the lamb and pumpkin soup alone. Just superb. I'm now buying copies to give for Christmas this year.
