Soup is delicious, nourishing, and endlessly versatile. Around the world and throughout the seasons, soup is a favorite pleasure. Who doesn't love a fragrant, steaming bowl of soup when cold winds howl outside? And a chilled bowl of soup can be a light and soothing meal in the hottest months of summer.

Now Lydie Marshall, a beloved cooking teacher in France and America, serves up something for everyone: 140 mouthwatering recipes for soups and accompanying salads, breads, and desserts to make a meal. Lydie offers a wide range of her favorite soup recipes, from classics like New England Clam Chowder and Onion Soup to new favorites like Red Lentil Soup with Curry or Fava Bean Soup with Mint and Feta Cheese. Make a meal of Lydie's Tuscan Ribollita (the twice-cooked Tuscan bean soup), Chicory Salad with Bacon, Croutons, Poached Eggs, and a loaf of Poilane bread, finished with Vanilla Cream with Prunes Soaked in Brandy. All the recipes are here in Soup of the Day -- clear, accessible, delicious.

Soup of the Day is a fine collection of inviting, simple, delicious recipes, written in the reassuring style of a longtime cooking teacher who knows what home cooks want. With a foreword by Calvin Trillin, soup lover and Lydie Marshall fan, Soup of the Day is a welcome kitchen companion.
