Win a copy of Everyday Easy 100 Soup Recipes, by Simon and Alison Holst!

On a cold winter’s evening it’s hard to imagine anything more comforting than a bowl of hearty soup, something to really ‘warm the cockles of your heart’, as Alison’s mother would have said. Hot soup really does make everything seem just a little bit better.

This collection includes over 100 of Simon and Alison’s favourite soup recipes, from the slowly simmered (Alison’s speciality) to soups that can be made surprisingly quickly, perfect for satisfying after work weeknight meals (leftovers are great for lunches too!).

There’s something for almost any budget too – most soups are remarkably economical. They are fantastic for turning unassuming (and often cheaper) ingredients into something much greater than the sum of the parts.

A simmering stock pot has been a feature of kitchens for centuries and sometimes soup is the forgotten hero of the comfort food world. But soup isn’t only for cold nights! There’s a soup for every occasion in this new book. From cold soups such as gazpacho in summer, laksas and other Asian-style soups, which are delicious at any time of year, to thick farmhouse-style soups, something to tempt you regardless of the weather.

    This is a lovely idea. With winter being so cold, it would be lovely to have some great soup dishes on hand.

    Oh my goodness, this would be the perfect book for my friend – she’s nuts about soup (as am I!) – she’s single-handedly trying to implement a soup loyalty card at the cafe at her place of work….and I think she may well be almost there!!

    There is nothing better than home made soup, would be great to be inspired to try more varieties for it is all too easy to fall back on old tried and true favourites. One can always rely on the Holsts.
