This book was a Winter 2009 pick of the week by Gremolata's Dean Tudor.

This cookbook is by Carla Snyder and Meredith Deeds, both food writers living in the US Midwest. This is a nice database of classics and contemporary soups, along with international preps such as pho, harira, minestrone, or African peanut soup. It is arranged by major ingredient. There are separate chapters for meat, veggies, beans, cheese, poultry, fish, and styles such as chowders, cold soups, and dessert soups. At the beginning there are notes on soup stocks, and at the end, there are notes on garnishes and toppings.

As is standard with any Rose cookbook, the ingredients are expressed in both avoirdupois and metric measurements, the typeface is clean and lean and large, and there is plenty of white space for adding your own notes. Audience and level of use: basic soup primer. Some interesting or unusual recipes/facts: veal burgoo, chilled curried pear soup, chicken-squash-sausage soup, lasagna soup, arugula soup with salmon and roasted grape tomatoes, guacamole soup. The downside to this book: there are some colour pix of the soups, but really, you cannot see much, just the garnish and the top layer. This is true of all soups, so why bother? It just adds to the expense of the book. The upside to this book: nifty collection.
