Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent and very practical  Oct 31, 2007
I spend a tremendous amount of time in the kitchen and I am always trolling for new cookbooks that are approachable, practical and produce good results. I had been researching books on soup for a while and I spotted this one here on this site and decided to give it a try. I am very glad that I did so.

While this is a cookbook primarily about soups ans stews, there are some additional things in this book that count toward the 262 recipe-count. These include breadsticks, biscuits and other accompaniments. As soups and small breads go together, this is a nice touch. Fortunately, the collection of this type of recipe within this cookbook is short and appropriate.

The book is laid out in a very clear and approachable manner, providing the reader a very straightforward representation of the recipe in question. The recipes are well-written, easy to follow and are formatted for ease of reading. The only improvement might be to make the print larger, but then it comes to nitpicking.

For the recipes I have tried or flagged for trying in the near future, I have been pleased that most do not require exotic ingredients or things that are hard to find. This makes this cookbook a lot more practical for the average home chef. The end results are hard to beat as well.

There is something about a hearty, hot bowl of soup that warms you to the core on the coldest of days, and this book delivers an excellent collection of recipes that should please anyone wanting to make excellent soups without buying expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. If soup is your thing, this is the book you want.
Clear, concise and tasty...  Jan 27, 2007
I have slightly above-average cooking skills, and must employ them at least 5 nights a week for my 6'4" husband and 9 year old daughter who both eat like they have hollow legs. This book is extremely easy to use, which is essential for my time-strapped evenings.

After a brief introduction about technique and tools, this book is organized by food type, i.e. meat, poultry, seafood, vegetable etc., with additional brief sections about garnishes and bread-sides. The recipes are not exotic, meaning you won't need a specialty grocery for every recipe. They are however intensely flavorful, utilizing plain, old-fashioned techniques like sautee and simmer to bring the flavors together.

The editorial review of this book complains about its lack of sophistication in the descriptions of each recipe, but I prefer the simplicity. The page layouts remain uncluttered and (more importantly) un-intimidating, which is important at 6:30 pm just walking in the door from work and faced with a hungry kid and a blank kitchen!

Included in this book are several standards like chili, beef stew, chicken soup, and vegetable ministrone in addition to some surprising and refreshing ideas such as cold avocado soup with cashews, white chili with chicken or turkey, and lamb shanks with gremolata. All retain their simplicity, flavor, and ease of preparation.

There is nothing more heartening than the bouquet of steam rising from a pot of fresh, homemade soup in these cold winter months... unless it's watching your family smile around their spoons!
good recipes, no fluff  Sep 16, 2006
I really like this book, for , as stated by others, it is a hearty collection of soups and stews, with a great variety ranging from vegeterian to meat-filled to cold and even some fruit. I have some definte favorites, especially the smoked salmon chowder (just straight up chowder, nothing weird like peas or cocktail onions like another recipe I have seen!), but I do have to say that not all recipes have worked out for me. It could have been my taste, but I think a little more instruction, or perhaps tips/recommendations, from the author on the selection of certain ingredients would have helped the bad recipes turn out better. I would definitely recommend this book, especially with soup season starting up soon!
I'll admit..I'm mainly a soup person only in the fall and winter months when it's cooler and you don't mind a nice pot of soup simmering on the stove for several hours. Soup and winter just goes together even though this book contains many lighter receipes that can be enjoyed all year round.

This is a follow-up to the Big Book of Casseroles and contains receipes for over 250 soups, stews, and chowders. Some very elegant soups perfect for a formal dinner party to go along with stick to your ribs soups for tailgating before a big game. There's old classic favorites such as Chicken Noodle, Motzah Ball and Clam Chowder to go along with more exotic soups such as the Thai Ginger Chicken Soup and Spicy Cuban Pork Stew. One of my favorites is the Chicken with Buttermilk Thyme dumplings which is just fantastic in the dead of winter like it is now. There are several potato soup recipes which I absolutely love including the baked potato soup.

The recipes are fairly simple to make and most of the ingredients are availabe from the grocery store but a few will require a visit to a gourmet food store if you really want to do it right. This book is a soup-eaters dream!
My favorite cookbook for the past year!  Jan 27, 2005
I love soup, but I don't like to spend all day making it. Maryana has "boiled down" every recipe to the simplest yet tastiest way to make it. Try the Sunriver Soup for is delicious. I have had this book for over a year, and have made over 20 of the recipes...they have all been fantastic. Both of the Gumbo recipes are super, the seafood one is divine. The Gazpacho is perfect, and I love the Mexican Chicken and Corn soup too. I like how she doesn't require a million and one ingredients but just selects the perfect combination of spices for each soup.
