300 Sensational Soups Book Review
I got 300 Sensational Soups from the library and was doubtful I’d find anything new or exciting. It is soup afterall, not always the center of a meal. Was I ever wrong! 300 Sensational Soups book has great recipes I’ve never seen before, and has actually inspired me to make a soup dinner at least once a week during cold weather months. In addition to the great recipes, there are tips in the margin that are actually helpful! (in some other books, the tips only fill up space).
There are also soups such as Day After Thanksgiving Soup, which come in handy. At at the end of the 300 Sensational Soups book there are recipes for toppings and garnishes that will make your soup sing: Chile Cheddar Croutons, Fluffy Dumplings, Crispy Shallots. Are you hungry yet? I ended up buying 300 Sensational Soups book and will probably cook my way through it. This would be a great gift for a cook on your list. And an excellent pairing would be 300 Sensational Soups and one of the Artisan Bread books by Jeff Hertzberg MD and Zoe Francois.
