Love! Dec 5 2011
By Soup Fanatic - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this is superb. I have made almost every recipe and they are all to die for. My favorite is the broccoli creme soup. The book has colorful pictures that make it easy to use. Love it!

Good recipes - but even better as a reference guide Jan. 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A colleague gifted this to me during a cookbook purge. I have only made a couple of recipes from it so far, but they were both excellent. What I really liked about the book was the reference information at the beginning of the book. It is chock full of advice on the basics of making good soup. And I also really liked the measuring charts. For e.g., recipes often don't explain how many potatoes you need to make 2 cups of diced potato. This book offers guidance on these matters, which is really useful - especially if you want to make a different number of servings.

I especially liked the leek/potato soup recipe. This version includes roasted/peeled bell pepper, which at first I was tempted to skip. I am glad I did not, because the smokiness of the pepper added a lovely note to the soup without overwhelming it. The only thing that surprised me is that it talked about straining the solids, then puréeing them then adding them back to the soup, I just used an immersion blender, which struck me as being much more straightforward.

A bit deceptive on the description May 8 2012
By Dirty Martini - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book description states: "The New Book of Soups contains all the recipes you've come to enjoy from the original Book of Soups plus 30 brand new recipes..."

Their use of the words "contains all the recipes you've come to enjoy" is deceptive in that this book DOES NOT contain ALL of the recipes from the original Book of Soups (August 2005 edition).

I own the original Book of Soups, but purchased this one for the additional recipes they claim to have added.

But, when searching for Cream of Celery or Cream of Asparagus (variations found under the Cream of Broccoli soup recipe in the older Book of Soups) they are not to be found.

I did not do a side-by-side comparison of the two books, but if two recipes were left out, I'm sure there are more.

I'm disappointed with this "New" Book of Soups. It was not worth the purchase if you already own the first version.
