I love to cook, and am an avid "Roaster", partly due to Kafka's roasting book. I have had great luck with this book, especially the recipe for bread soup, and with the bouliabase. There are few secrets, just use good fresh ingredients, and taylor the soups to suit your taste.

I was suspicious of this woman when she wrote a food column for Vogue magazine and praised iceburg lettuce. Always willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt, I tried 4 recipes from this cookbook. They were appalling and even my dog Zeke, the most undiscriminating gourmande on the planet, wouldn't eat them.
(Good dog.)

This cookbook is lovely to look at and has nice vignettes about the author and her love of soup. However, the recipes were not my cup of tea. Too many of them contained either fish of odd ingredients that I would choose to avoid (e.g., oxtail). As a result, I have made few of these recipes.

Because Ms. Kafka was at Vogue for so long, I assumed (wrongly) that this book would be divine. I have made about 5 soups from this book, 4 of which my husband simply refused to eat. Even her basic stock recipes are insipid. Her little family anecdotes are maudlin, but with the advent of Martha Stewart Omniverous er, Omnimedia, and her magazine perfect life and self-congratulatory writing, maybe I'm a tad cynical. Support your local economy and dine out at your favorite restaurant. Skip the soup course.

Kafka presents recipies that are far less challenging then many other serious cookbooks. Her simple prose and straight forward recipies are perfect for the cook ready to move up the culinary ladder.

I could not find a single recipe that I would use. Either they contained odd ingredients or the entire recipe did not sound edible. I absolutely do not recommend purchasing this book.
