Featured book in the Home Style Books, a division of Book-of-the-Month-Club, Inc.
This charming little book gives recipes for a wide range of soups based on freshly made chicken stock. Some are first courses, like Stracciatella, a delicate soup from Rome that takes minutes to make. Others are substantial enough to be meals in themselves, including Chicken Soup with Chickpeas and Couscous, Oriental Soup Noodle Lunch for One and Minestrone with Smoked Chicken. There are such elegant creamed soups as Glden Chicken and Sweet Plaintain Sopa, which combines the flavors of Key West and Cuba, and Cumin Scented ream of Sweet Potato Soup. In addition, there are recipes for wontons, fluffy kasha and other soup accompaniments.
