Soups are warming, comforting, and filling. We eat soup when we're feeling tired, cold, perhaps a little under the weather - they are the ultimate comfort food. And everyone most definitely has their favourite. This book includes everyone's favourite along with a whole host of other innovative flavour combinations made using interesting fresh ingredients. All of the basic preparation techniques are explained, together with notes about the equipment required. There is also a chapter on garnishes - such as croutons, salsas and pickles.
