    Hands down, this is my absolute favorite cookbook. That is saying a lot considering I study cooking and own cookbooks written by legends like Charlie Trotter, Thomas Kellar and Joel Robuchon. What makes this cookbook stand out amongst all the others is the fact that I have made every recipe in the book and liked them all. Soups are a fabulous item to keep on hand in the freezer at all times. I like to make 2 soups per month and then freeze the leftovers.

Soups are a fabulous item to keep on hand in the freezer at all times. I like to make 2 soups per month and then freeze the leftovers. (I have a quart or two of the Artichoke Bisque in my freezer at all times, it is my favorite.) All I have to do when last minute company stops by is thaw out a quart and make the garnish. They get a gourmet flavor and homemade meal with very little fuss on your end. Soups are also great for bringing to sick friends and relatives, new parents, care packages and potluck dinners. People are always asking me to bring soup wherever I go. In fact, one of my closest friends started having an annual soup party thanks to me. And as much as I love taking credit for the cooking, it all started with this cookbook. I HIGHLY recommend adding this to your collection. It will soon become a favorite.

    Growing up, soup was always our first course at dinner. There is nothing better than hot soup on all kinds of days. Game days, reunion days, first day back to school day, & especially I-don’t-feel-well-day. Marjorie Druker and Clara Silverstein in their New England Soup Factory Cookbook provide recipes for the different seasons. Some sound yummy, but others I do wonder how the ingredients translate to soup.

Under the heading yummy soups/stews I would place Hearty and Rich Beef Stew, Chili Con Carne, Beef and Barley Soup among others. Under the I Do Wonder heading Artichoke Bisque ( even though I love artichokes), Curried Mussel Bisque, and Wild Maine Blueberry Soup (love Maine Blueberries too!) would be found. The photography is superb, and The New England Soup Factory is an extremely successful place to get many kinds of soup in Boston, MA. The authors’ include some sandwiches and salads too as well as some ‘anecdotes ‘ along the way. 31/2-4 stars.

    Had this is print some years ago. Am now replacing the print version with the Kindle version. Some of the recipes are quite rich and some have ingredients I can't find locally, but it's worth it for the chicken soups alone. Had this is print some years ago.

    I've had this cookbook for a while but haven't cooked from it that much. Part of that is the way it's organized: some chapters are by main ingredients ("A Chicken in Every Pot", "Say Cheese, Please"), some by type of soup ("Championship Chowders", "Childhood Favorites"), and then there are also chapters by season ("Autumn Flavors", "Winter's Brew", "Spring In a Bowl", "Summer Soothers"). This means you have to look in multiple places to find a simple recipe -- is gazpacho in with "Tomato Teasers I've had this cookbook for a while but haven't cooked from it that much.

This means you have to look in multiple places to find a simple recipe -- is gazpacho in with "Tomato Teasers" or in "Summer Soothers"? A badly organized table of contents is one of my cookbook pet peeves. I think I've only made one of these recipes so far, but it was great: Grandma Florrie's Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls. This was some of the best matzoh ball soup I've had. I like her trick of using club soda to make the matzoh balls extra light. Though mine fell apart a little, I think that was mostly user error and they were still great. I omitted the veal bone and the broth still had plenty of flavor. I'm looking forward to cooking some more of these soups. I already have a bunch tagged with post-it notes: Spinach, Feta Cheese, & Toasted Pine Nut Soup, Artichoke Bisque, Cheddar-Corn Chowder with Bacon & Scallions, and Sweet Green Pea Soup with Fresh Mint. I'll report back!

    This is a solidly good collection of soup recipes. We cooked from it for cook book club and every recipe turned out great with very few changes to be made in the future. Try the eggplant parm, indonesian carrot, lima and barley, porcini and pumpkin yellow split pea. Delicious!

    Truly delicious recipes. However, they lose a point for ingredient count and another point for calorie count. Anybody can make good soup with that much cream and cheese. However, the flu-chasing chicken soup is awesome!

    My husband bought me this for a dollar. I wish he hadn't. The recipes look so delicious, but sadly due to severe dietary restrictions I can't eat them. It's very depressing.

    I know, I don't usually review cookbooks, but this one I really love and want to share. Sadly, I lost all of my cookbooks when we lost our home in the California wildfires-- many of which were out of date and could not be replaced. So, my sons sent me this soup cookbook, having remembered their childhood during which I loved making warm soups for winter nights, or even taking 4 different soups up to the mountains when we skied so everyone could have their favorite!

Well, this cookbook is absolutely wonderful!! I have tried many of the recipes in this cookbook and they are easy to make, yet the quality for dinner parties. We keep at least 3 in the freezer at all times.  I've just ordered 3 more copies, to be sent this holidays to my boys so they can enjoy them in their own homes. What a fabulous find!

    Wow! This book is so tasty looking. There are so many great recipes for soups, basques, stews, and sandwiches. I think my mouth watered the entire time I was reading it! I am most excited to try: 1. Lobster bisque 2. Artichoke bisque 3. Spicy shrimp and rice soup (although I might need a substitute of some sort for the shrimp because I am not a huge fan...) 4. Day off sandwiches (the picture!! YUM) 5. Russian Mustard dressing 6. Grandma Florrie’s Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls But seriously, there are so Wow! This book is so tasty looking.

I might have to add this book to my small but treasured cookbook collection!

    Many didn't appeal to my taste but some others sounded great. Definitely going to try the good for what ails you chicken soup (name not right but you get the idea). I make chicken soup frequently during the colder months and a variation, especially one that teases so many taste buds and soothes so many ills, sounds great.

    Maybe I shouldn't have read this while I was hungry, but all of these recipes sound delicious! I even got a few ideas for sandwiches and salads. The personal stories at the start of each chapter add fun flavor to the book without taking up a lot of space.

    My favorite cookbook! The recipes in this are so delicious and easy to make. Some of the recipes make an enormous amount of soup though, so be aware of the amounts before you start making anything.

Her instructions on various stocks/bases are clear and easy-to-grasp, so I'd think it would be a good experiment; plus, they freeze well and are ready to go the next time you want a good base for a fabulous soup, chowder or stew. Man, the winter will be infinitely tastier with this around. Gonna have to find this to purchase, as I said before. Yum!

    I've just purchased and read the book, so have only had time to make one recipe so far. The Corn and Cheese Chowder is delicious! Easy to make and with ingredients that are not difficult to find. I can't wait to try other recipes--they all sound wonderful. The instructions are easy to follow and the color photographs are beautiful. There are recipes for sandwiches and a few signature desserts as well. I've just purchased and read the book, so have only had time to make one recipe so far.

    I can't wait to try some of these soup recipes. Need to go grocery shopping. Well, I made the artichoke bisque tonight, and I thought it was very yummy. I had to return this to the library sooner than I wanted, but I'm definitely going to check it out again when I have more time, so that I can try more of the recipes.

    Oh, Yum! Fall is upon us and every Sunday is soup making day! I love this season and this is a fabulous book of recipes that will keep you warm all fall and winter. Enjoy! Update: I've made 9 different soups from this book; every one fantastic. I don't believe there is a bad recipe in this book. And most recipes serve 10-12 so it lasts the week. Soo delicious!!

    I know that I am not going to have time to make any of these soups before the book is due back to the library. It would be worthwhile checking it out again, as several of the soups looked very good. 641.813 DRU I am basing my 4 star rating on the varied selection of soups, the beautiful pictures and all the helpful tips.

    All recipes are very time-intensive and require many ingredient, including uncommon ones you will have to buy specifically for this soup. I thought this would be awesome, since I love New England Soup Factory, but it's not useful at all. I occasionally thumb through it, then decide to make something from another cookbook or go buy the soup.

I will adjust my review and rating after I've had a chance to make a few of the recipes - there are a number of them that I really want to try soon. Some of the soups seem to include a wide variety of spices that sound like they would be really good together. Can't wait to taste them! 3 stars for recipe difficulty and other content.

    Truthfully, I haven't made a recipe from this book. But they all sound good and pretty simple. I'm just gearing up for this fall and winter in Seattle, when warm soup and warm bread will probably be on the menu a few times a week. Truthfully, I haven't made a recipe from this book.

    Not sure if "currently reading" is correct category. Currently browsing through and making myself hungry. Corn and roasted red pepper chowder is one recipe that Jason would make with me. On my own I'll probably try cauliflower, potato, and cheese soup and others. Not sure if "currently reading" is correct category. Currently browsing through and making myself hungry.

    I make a lot of soup. And now I will make more! :) Homemade stock shows up in pretty much every recipe! :( Cream shows up in most, and tomato and wine show up in many, recipes. :| I didn't know what a bisque technically is, and I do now, but not because the book told me clearly.
