Here’s what the press has had to say about this beautiful new book:

“A book like this makes me think that really, I could live a lovely and fulfilling life and eat only soup.”  – Time Out Chicago, which named the Soup & Bread Cookbook one of “10 essential cookbooks for autumn”

“One of the most thought-provoking (and appetizing!) books I’ve picked up in a long time.” — Baltimore’s Examiner.

“Every noble thing in this world begins with bored bartenders in the dead of winter in Chicago. . . . Adorable.” — Grub Street Chicago

”In the spirit of those plastic-bound church cookbooks, the bulk of the recipes are tried and true favorites from regular people . . . . [It's] a handsome package.” — Chicago Journal

” The book reflects the almost palpable enthusiasm for soup that can be felt at the events, from Bayne’s informative essays to Paul Dolan’s charming illustrations to the recipes themselves, which preserve the writers’ individual voices.” — Chicago Reader
