Synopses & Reviews
Soup is delicious in every season, and this delightful cookbook includes over thirty recipes for fall, winter, spring, and summer soups, as well as related recipes for bread, salads, and snacks. Using tasty ingredients and winning combinations, Chef Gary Goss proves that even beginning chefs can create scrumptious soups! Recipes are charmingly named: "You Cant Elope" (a cold cantaloupe soup) or "Sob Soup" (made with onions). Most notably, however, are Dyer's ethereal illustrations that gracefully accompany the recipes, offering images of dancing celery and sunbathing tomatoes that are sure to keep kids engaged while in the kitchen.
