by Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourrette
Partial Synopsis from Bas Bleu: These exceptional soups from a New York monastery kitchen vary in taste, texture, complexity, and origin, but all 167 (mostly vegetarian) recipes are deliciously tempting. Brother Victor-Antoine hopes his recipes will "help cultivate the art of soup making."
My Thoughts: A nice big bowl of soup can be such a comfort! While I have yet to try all the recipes, the ones we have made are delicious! With different options throughout the months, lots of seasonal vegetables can be used. Fresh produce from my garden is always the tastiest! This pretty cookbook has quotes and bits of poetry here and there. You can also read snippets of history about cathedrals and saints. A lovely book I can definitely recommend!
