    A Soup Book?

    The foods I struggle most with cooking are the foods I don't eat. I'm not really a soup eater. I would like to do more freshly made soups at work but am not finding many recipes that are conducive in my texts from school.

    Can anyone recommend any cookbook(s) specific to soups? A professional oriented book rather than a home cookbook would be preferred.

    Thanks!

    Here's one that specializes in chicken soup http://www.amazon.com/Whole-World-Lo.../dp/0446676497 written by Mimi Sheraton. She also wrote http://www.amazon.com/The-German-Coo.../dp/0394401387 which is one of my favorites. There are some good German soups in there too. She was also a food writer/critic for the NY Times. I can't think of any other soup specific book I have. I refer to Marcella Hazan and Giuliano Bugialli for Italian soups, Diane Kennedy and Rick Bayless for Mexican soups, Penelope Casas for Spanish, Julia Child's books for French, etc. A quick Amazon search brings up this book http://www.amazon.com/Splendid-Soups...963219&sr=1-12 which looks promising... the guy knows his sauces, so why not soup?

    Which Soup Bible? There seems to be a few of them out there by different authors.
