Descriere: Few foods rival the feel-good factor of soup, whether a hearty minestrone on a chilly evening, a cooling gazpacho in the heat of summer, or the comforting tomato soup of childhood memory. This rich collection brings together 100 soup recipes from some of Britain's leading chefs and food writers. From Jamie Oliver's Chickpea, Leak and Parmesan Soup, to Rick Stein's Classic Fish Soup with Rouille and Croutons, here are recipes for every mood and meal. And as every culture embraces soup of some kind, the influences at work here are wonderfully varied--Ken Hom's Tomato Ginger Soup, Terence Conran's Borscht, Nobu's Seafood Miso with Chorizo, and Sam and Sam Clark's Chestnut and Chorizo Soup, to name but a few. Soup is surely the ultimate seasonal food, and, reflecting this, the book is organized by time of year, so that ingredients are easy to find and at their full-flavored best.

Here it is newly bound to enrich one's life." --Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures on the Wine Route "Simple French Food has the most marvelous French food to appear in print since Elisabeth David's French Provincial Cooking....

A mingling of French, Caribbean, African, Spanish, and Native American influences has created the unique culture of New Orleans, from Mardi Gras to the blues. And like the city itself, the cuisine of New Orleans is an exuberant, creative mix, evoking the legacy of three continents. Step into any Cajun or Creole kitchen and you will experience an extraordinary blend of Old World and New. In The Best of New Orleans, food expert Brooke Dojny has selected the finest dishes of south Louisiana in their most classic guises. From a base of French culinary principles, enlivened by a dash of American ingenuity, come thick spicy gumbos and jambalayas, barbecued and blackened seafood, fiery andouille sausages, superb Sweet Potato Pie and luscious Bananas Foster. Each recipe includes advice on special cooking techniques, and a glossary describes and defines everything from file powder to cayenne, grillade to courtbouillon. Color photographs of the finished dishes and of New Orleans itself capture the joie de vivre of this most irresistible of cuisines.
