Cookbook Review: A Feast of Soups

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. Yes, really. It doesn’t look like anything special, does it? It looks like something you’d find at the Goodwill, doesn’t it? Or your gramma’s basement.

We got it for a wedding gift with a large soup ladle. That’s my kind of gift!

But, A Feast of Soups is a treasure trove of information. In fact, author Jacqueline Heriteau gives you all the low down on making soups from scratch. She doesn’t just give you recipes. She gives you an education.

While I’ve only made a handful of her recipes, I would never give away the book. It is a constant tool in crafting a better soup.

This is one wedding gift that will never be regifted.

  1. My go-to book is my Better Homes and Garden collection — the one with the plaid cover. Reliable recipes and a nice smattering of different things so if I’m in need of inspiration I can usually find something there. Also, my Better Homes and Gardens slow cooker book. Couldn’t live without it.

  2. Whole Foods for the Whole Family – I haven’t made a ton of recipes out of this one either, but it’s a great source of inspiration using real ingredients!

  3. The soup book sounds like a good book. I have the Whole Foods for the Whole Family book, too.

  4. Thank you for the recommendation! These are the kinds of posts I love. When I clicked on your link Amazon had a used copy available for $3 and I have amazon prime so I ordered it. I can’t wait to see it.

  5. Marcella’s Kitchen by Marcella Hazan. Every single recipe in it is like my mama used to make!

  6. My favorite cookbook is Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites – no kidding. So many recipes that my kids will eat. I even make them one at a time occasionally instead of a whole month’s worth.
