• Who wrote it: Courtney Allison, Tina Carr, Caroline Laskow, and Julie Peacock
• Who published it: Clarkson Potter
• Number of recipes: 150
• Other highlights: The enthusiasm in this book is contagious. It makes me want to text three buddies right this second and convince them we should start our own soup exchange. Besides all the help working through the logistics of a soup swap, I love the soup-love stories from each author and their often-hilarious email exchanges as they organize the weekly swap.
There's a good mix of standby soups here (chili, chicken noodle, lentil soup) as well as some more off-beat soups for those nights when you want something a little different (Thai fish curry, Sun-Dried Tomato Soup, Saffron Seafood Chowder), plus ideas for sides and salads. Especially useful is the info on storing, freezing, and reheating the soups.
