Description
Filled with passion, warmth, and vitality, James Peterson's exquisitely researched books have earned him a reputation as one of the finest food writers of our time, with two James Beard Foundation Awards to his credit for his classic Sauces and Vegetables.In Splendid Soups, Peterson uses clear, step-by-step guidance to explain the essential techniques for making broths and consommés, and then moves on to soups based on vegetables, fish, meat, and other main ingredients. Capturing the heart and soul of the world's finest cuisines, 400 recipes offer an exciting and rich contemporary repertoire to explore, from the exotic Indian-Style Shrimp and Coconut Soup and the elegant Poached Duck Breast with Vegetables to the pungent Vietnamese Spicy Soup with Rice Noodles and the intriguing Chicken Tagine with Apricots, Raisins, and Almonds. In addition to bringing together the best soup-making techniques and recipes from around the world, Peterson shares the underlying soup-making guidelines that can be used to personalize recipes and create delicious signature dishes. Encouraging a deeper understanding of the ingredients and techniques of national and regional cuisines-including what foods work well together and when to add them to the cooking process-these guidelines liberate the cook from recipes and offer new ideas that will inspire a lifetime of culinary discovery. Throughout the book, helpful text boxes share tips on everything from how to make a base for vegetable soups to how to fix a soup that isn't working out as planned. In addition, Peterson shares indispensable advice on choosing ingredients and selecting the proper pots and utensils, along with crucial thoughts on how to transform a soup from mediocre to magnificent, serving suggestions, and more-all delivered in his engaging and witty style. Whether it's a classic Gazpacho brimming with the fresh flavors of summer or a sinfully indulgent Foie Gras and Truffle Soup, he shows how to bring out the very best that soup has to offer. Filled with exciting ideas and fresh flavor combinations, Splendid Soups is an enduring resource that belongs in every fine cook's library.
