Autumn is officially upon us and personally, with this crisp gale-bringing season comes the natural instinct to eat more hearty and warming soups: a perfect season for the launch of Great Homemade Soups: A Cook’s Collection by Paul Gayler, the award-winning Executive Chef at The Lanesborough in London.
In this gorgeously presented book Paul shares a comprehensive collection of over 100 of his most appetising soup recipes alongside recipes from guest chefs including Daniel Boulud, Antonio Carluccio, Chris and Jeff Galvin, Tom Kerridge, Atul Kochhar, Pierre Koffman and Susan Spicer.
The book begins with a brief introduction to soups, their classification, the equipment needed, some information on garnishes, accompaniments and soup toppings before detailing in step-by-step Masterclasses how to make perfect homemade soup stocks, the fundamental base to every good soup.
Mouthwatering recipes from around the globe are divided into chapters including natural broths and consommés, smooth and creamy, hearty and wholesome, traditional favourites, wild and exotic and chilled. Some recipes are economical and others are for a more expensive budget, but the well detailed index means you can find the perfect soup for whatever your appetite desires and whatever ingredients you happen to have in your kitchen.
Each recipe is accompanied by stunning and mouthwatering photography by Lisa Linder. So, whether you are wanting something light and fresh such as a courgette and basil soup with prosciutto tartines, or something exotic and smoky like a roasted pepper and aubergine soup with saffron aïoli or perhaps something hearty and warming like a cumin roasted squash and lentil soup with cracked wheat dumplings then this cookbook is for you. There is something for everyone in this book. I know I will certainly be referring to it over and over again!
