One of the reasons I don’t often make a big pot of soup is that there are just two of us and we don’t like to eat the same thing day after day. Shelly Westerhausen Worcel, in her excellent cookbook, Every Season Is Soup Season: 85+ Souper-Adaptable Recipes to Batch, Share, Reinvent, and Enjoy, has come up with solutions to that dilemma, and makes it possible for those with small families or those who shun leftovers to reinvent the soups into different equally mouthwatering dishes.

One thing that is helpful is a page on troubleshooting soup problems, such as too thin or too salty. There are also instructions on storing and freezing soup. Every recipe has helpful hints on adding meat or changing flavors, as well as most have a second or third recipe using the soup in a new dish. All of the recipes aren’t savory; rather, there are also a few dessert soups. All have innovative ways to use up the leftovers. There is also a chapter on soup enhancers such as broth, sauces, croutons, and toppings.

A favorite thing about this cookbook is that there are beautiful, professional photographs that make every soup (as well as the other recipes) look mouthwatering. The soups are garnished and look very appetizing. Other photos include the landscape surrounding where the author lives. Beautiful.

All told, this is one soup cookbook that is unique. The author has a good imagination and makes soups and other dishes that will appeal to everyone. The recipes are easy to follow, and I anticipate using it often.
