Description: "In [this book, the author] approaches her subject in two ways. First, she demonstrates, at a time when our regular expenditure of food has soared, that more and more we must seek good, hearty, nutritious food that is both easy to prepare and economic to provide— home-made soups answer these needs perfectly. Second, she offers recipes from different countries in Europe and the US for soups that are not only nourishing and delicious but are sufficient in themselves to be enjoyed as a meal. In addition, she includes a special chapter on cold soups [including Russian Yablochni (Яблочни)], and a further exotic one on 'Soups with a Difference'—ranging from English Apple and Spanish Chestnut soups to [Sudanese Peanut] soup. Finally, she adds 'A Collation of Sandwiches' where she suggests how our lunchtime soup and sandwich, essentially an American combination, can be given both variety and richness."
