Synopsis

Nothing beats a good soup - unequaled in taste, nourishment, and versatility, a soup can be an elegant first course, a hearty meal in itself, a surefire cure for the common cold. Filled with the simple pleasures of home-style cooking and 150 proven recipes, this book contains everything you ever wanted to know about making this favorite meal. All the secrets to concocting the perfect bowl of soup are right here, followed by an array of recipes sure to suit every occasion and satisfy every palate. There are delicious vegetable soups, such as Tomato and Bread Soup with Pesto, Cool-as-a-Cucumber Soup, and Polenta Potato Soup. The hearty meals include Turkey Noodle Soup with Old-Fashioned Egg Noodles and Poor Man's Bouillabaisse. The smooth cream soups boast Calico Cheese Soup and Fresh Tomato Bisque. There are savory stews, chunky chowders, peppery chilis, and spicy gumbos, as well as fruit soups filled with nature's sweetness. There is even a section of shortcut soups that can be made quickly with ingredients straight from the grocer's shelf. Clearly written and easy to use, the book also tells cooks how to choose the best equipment, select and store ingredients, and make the perfect pot of stock or successfully substitute canned broths. Always the baker, Marilyn Moore concludes with a few special recipes for breads and crackers that go especially well with soups.
