300 Sensational Soups

It's cold, it's rainy (some of us are even experiencing snow)...so what could be more timely than this cookbook filled with every kind of soup imaginable. The title says it all ... 300 Sensational Soups by Carla Snyder & Meredith Deeds

I must admit that I don't relish soup when it's hot, but if you do, there are even some wonderful recipes like Cold Avocado Soup, Chilled Curried Pear Soup (which I just might have to try anyway), Shrimp Cocktail Soup with Horseradish Sauce, Gazpacho, Bloody Mary Soup...in fact 18 chilled soups for those of you experiencing summer weather, or like me, saving them for next summer.

There are even 22 dessert soups. Seriously, who could resist dishes like Gingered Creme Anglaise Soup, Blueberry Soup with Yoghurt Swirl, Raspberry & White Chocolate Swirl Soup with Brownie Croutons...I mean...come on...how cool is that!

There are soups for every taste...sweet or spicy, brothy (14 stocks!) or thick and hearty. Here are a couple that I'll be making more than once!

Lamb & Lentil Soup
We really couldn't get enough of this one with it's subtle curry flavor.

Pappa al Pomodoro

This was a perfect use of the wine focaccia I over baked.

I'm not sure which wonderful soup I'll try next, but you can be sure that this book will be well worn by winter's end.
