Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

From Chicken Broth with Matzo Balls to Strawberry Sambuca Soup, Reiss serves up over 100 kosher soups from around the world in this short, focused collection. The recipes are straightforward and simple; rarely do the instructions take more than half a page. One notable exception is the delicious Asian-inspired Shredded Duck Soup, just one of the book's many exotic preparations. Others include Chocolate Soup, billed as a perfect Passover dessert, Thai Chicken and Coconut Soup with lemongrass, and what could be a college hit: Beer Cheese Soup, garnished with popcorn. Throughout the volume, Reiss's instructions are helpful and laid-back: "I like the consistency to be a little looser than baby food, but it's all about how you like it!" she writes about Roasted Acorn Squash Soup. Enthusiasm abounds; every other recipe is finished with an exclamation point: Serve! Enjoy! She includes ingredients that help the cook take shortcuts: canned pumpkin in the Easy Pumpkin Soup and canned corn and beans in Mexican Rice and Black Bean Soup as well as the orthodox addition of non-dairy coffee creamer to Creamy Chicken Rice Soup. Most of her recipes, however, use fresh market vegetables, and the comprehensive vegetarian soup section reflects a genuine love of produce. Laid out with easy to read nutrition information, serving sizes and storage notes, each recipe is marked parve, dairy, meat and/or Passover, for quick menu planning. Without lofty goals or excess words, Reiss ladles out a simple book that will appeal to families keeping kosher, people with food allergies, or anyone who likes a good bowl of soup.

Format: Paperback
Soup--A Kosher Collection is an excellent book! I never realized kosher soups were so easy to prepare and so delicious. Ms Reiss has included a recipe for every occasion; there is a huge selection of soups for meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans. Everything from old favorites such as chicken soup to new gems like curried red lentil soup or saffron garlic fish soup. The blueberry and rosemary soup was a fantastic surprise! I just bought the book and have made 12 of the over 150 recipes. Each recipe I made was a big hit with my family. The chocolate soup was a great treat. Ms Reiss' easy to follow recipes are accompanied by excellent definitions and cooking tips. I already bought a few copies for holiday gifts this year.

Format: Paperback
After tasting several incredible soups at the book launch (including chocolate soup and avocado soup- yum!), my family bought Pam Riess's Book, and started off by making one soup that sounds especially good. The Pear Soup with Pecans, Feta and Balsamic Reduction was simple to make, looked beautiful and tasted unique yet wonderful. Recipes include many chicken soups, dessert soups, vegetable soups and much more. The book inlcudes tips on how and when to serve the soups which are useful and accurate. Overall this soup book is a great addition to not only kosher kitchens, but all kitchens.

Format: Paperback
This cook book has a large variety of soup recipes, with great instructions, interesting ingredients, freezing tips and nutritional information. I always make the melon gazpacho in the summer! I've given it as a gift to non-kosher and non-Jewish friends, because it's just so useful.
