Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup by Maggie Stuckey

Book: Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup
Author: Maggie Stuckey
Narrator (if applicable): N/A

Release date (if applicable): October 22, 2013

Synopsis: Ms. Stuckey presents cooks with a nice collection and stories of entertaining with soup. Recipes aren't limited to soup, though! She gives excellent recipes for partnering dishes and desserts. Recipes include such greats as:

  • Red Beans and Rice Soup
  • Red Pozole
  • Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice Soup
  • Nana Mac's Nova Scotia Oatmeal Bread
  • Molded Cranberry Salad with Lemon Mayonaise
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookes
  • Surprise Beef Stew
 Recipes were also separated into seasons for soup all year long. 

My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: What a fun cookbook and delightful concept of "soup nights".  Soup recipes with tasty dishes to partner them with. The book offered many examples of families/friends hosting soup nights as something different.

I like that another reviewer called it a delightful little cook book, but its not just that. it's also a guide on building community and relationships through food.
