The Soup Book

Written by

DK Publishing, Sophie Grigson


05 September 2019

Who’s the author? Featuring soups from Raymond Blanc, Dan Barber and Alice Waters, The Soup Book is a collection of recipes from some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs and cooks. Put together by DK Publishing and food writer and celebrity chef, Sophie Grigson.

What’s it about? “Anyone can make a good soup”, says Sophie Grigson, editor of this fail-safe, comprehensive guide to soup, and she’s not wrong. The Soup Book shows that using whatever ingredients you have at home and whatever the season, really anyone can put together a tasty, nourishing bowlful.

With step-by-step photographs of all the basic techniques, from making stock to chopping onions to preparing pulses, and ingredient-led chapters divided by the seasons, you’ll find that you’ll be able to use these delicious recipes any time of the week or year, and even use them as the starting point to creating your own concoctions. Each recipe comes with estimated timings, handy tips and freezing times so you can batch-cook for the month ahead.

Recipes we love: Butterbean Soup with Rocket Pesto, Shiitake Chicken Noodle Soup, Beef and Green Bean Soup, and Keralan Prawn Soup.

Perfect for: Anyone interested in learning how to cook more with fresh vegetables and seasonal ingredients, budding cooks seeking to grasp the basics, and those of you who love good, nourishing bowl food.
