Starred Review. Druker, executive chef and co-owner of Massachusetts eatery the New England Soup Factory, joins veteran Boston-based food writer Silverstein to weave personal stories of the region with mouthwatering recipes in this instant classic, a must-have for soup lovers. Standards like Beef and Barley, Split Pea with Bacon and Potatoes, and Hot and Sour Soup sit comfortably next to innovative combinations such as Butternut Squash Soup with Calvados, Gorgonzola Cheese and Prosciutto or Yellow Tomato Soup with Jasmine Rice. Aside from the stock-making, which Druker and Silverstein heartily endorse, most of the soups and accompanying sides come together in minutes, producing a quick, hearty meal that few dishes can match for sheer satisfaction. Many recipes highlight just a handful of ingredients (Roasted Yellow Beet and Pear Soup with Blue Cheese; Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup with Dill; Apple, Onion and Cheddar Soup) and call for little else, keeping recipes simple, costs low and flavors bold. Recipes are grouped intuitively by theme (cheese, chicken, chowders, etc.) as well as by season, ensuring that the perfect bowl of soup is never far away.

It starts off covering making stock and then it follows with chapters by topic. For instance Tomato Teasers, Say Cheese Please, A Chicken in Every Pot, Under the Sea, Championship Chowders, Old World Flavours, and so on. I've found this arrangement makes it easier for me to choose a recipe based on what I have on hand.
I made the Carribean Chicken Soup with Coconut and just loved it. I am no chef (I like to eat not cook) but making this delicious soup was super easy. Next I want to try Indonesian Carrot, the Spicy Chickpea & Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato & Corn Chowder. I want to put post-its on every page to try them all.
Most of the recipes are on two pages, the first showing a large photo and the second the actual recipe. Ingredients are laid out for a quick read and not too much text in the instructions. The beginning of most recipes have a brief paragraph or a couple sentences to explain the soup's creation, history, etc. For instance the Carribean Chicken Soup is actually a healing soup due to its carefully chosen ingredients.
The back of the book has many sandwich and salad recipes as well with great photos that make you want to make it right now. What goes better with soup than a sandwich?
There are some winter stews such as Hearty & Rich Beef Stew a Vegetarian White Bean Chili and a Veal & Portobello Mushroom Stew.
I can't wait to try more and will report back once I have. I love this book and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Even has a few non-soup recipe's towards the back of the book. Great photos throughout.
