Soup cookbooks...Any Favourites?

debe5t's picture

Looking for a soup cookbook,nothing fancy,mostly interested in winter soups.


I usually make my soups from my mind (which can be dangerous) and some how they all taste similar.

Jean (and I) have the Lynn Rosetto Kasper book and it is great. I'm too lazy to go look at the title, but will when I next get up--knees are unforgiving joints, you know!!

Thanks that would be good.My whole body is fighting a war against me.  :-) So I do understand the lack of enrgy etc.to jump up.My mind wants to but the rest of  me does not co-operate.

I have been having some success with "New England Soup Factory".  I have your problem, DIY and they all tend to be alike. Needed some inspiration.
I have only made 3 soups from it so far, and be aware that you need to halve the recipes unless you are feeding a crowd, they are really tasty.

Phew,I thought it was just me whose soups all taste alike.Thank you for that! The Soup Factory sounds interesting.I am also toying with the idea of joining 'The good cook' book club,but have been involved with Doubleday clubs before so I am a little hesitant.

Oh, the Good Cook Club is a good one. But you need a strategy. I join and choose the 4 most expensive cookbooks that I want for the $1 each. Then at the same time I take advantage of the ability to buy one more for 50% off, and this counts torward your two required purchases. These 5 books, with shipping usually cost about $35 (the half price book is usually about $18, in my purchasing--shipping is a killer). Then I buy one more when I see what I want and terminate my membership.

Oh, it has been years ago. I got things like Baking with Julia--other big name books at that time. But that is just my strategy. Get the books you want.

And in Canada they have the special on now with four books for $1 and the selection is very good.

I did a class before Christmas on soups from British chefs, a compilation. Every soup was delicious and I made four in less two hours from scratch. I'll check out the name; it's a red cover.

OK, it was Soup Kitchen. Excellent book.

So you can un-join and rejoin and keep getting bargains forever?

They don't contact you right away, but eventually do. I looked at the offerings right now and I think they have cut 'way back. Just not the "big" cookbooks they used to have.

They actually contacted me within a couple of months after I cancelled. I was very surprised.

I don't know if it would be of interest to you, but my daughter bought me the Williams Sonoma Soup book and I like it.  I have made soups only from articles in the past.  You may be a more advanced cook for this book but you may find something new or different.

Thanks Tones.I do not know how advanced you could call me if everything I make from my head all tastes the same.......pea soup and beef barley should not taste the same.  :-)

There's a great Canadian one called "Good Soup, Empty Bowls". It's recipes from Chefs around Toronto. It's an annual benefit for homelessness that takes place at the Gardiner Ceramics Museum...
