Millennium Fruit Soup Cookbook - David Woods
After looking at some of the recipes I must admit are a few that pique my interest. For instance, The Fire and Ice Melon Soup. Watermelon, cantaloupe, zucchini, honey are all ingredients that one wouldn't first think of when making a soup. But this chilled soup blends these flavors to create a refreshingly good, versatile, and quick dish which can be served as an appetizer, light lunch, or even a dessert.
The book starts with a rundown on the ingredients used in the recipes. There are some exotic fruits used in some of the recipes so this is a nice touch. In addition to two stock recipes to be used as bases for some of the soups, he also provides several ideas for easy to make croutons to use as a garnish.
Mr. Woods serves up over 90 recipes for fruit soups in his paperback book. Many are chilled soups that appear to be fast to assemble, perfect for summer when everyone is on the go. Who says soup is a cold weather dish? Not David Woods, and he proves it in this excellent, well laid out book.
