Soup and Bread…the cookbook!

December 16, 2009

With much excitement I picked up several copies of the Soup and Bread Cookbook last Wednesday at the Hideout release party. I know I’ll be pouring over these recipes again and again for soup-inspiration!

The letterpress cover with spiral binding, the design by Sheila Sachs, and the beautiful illustrations by Paul Dolan are ubercute and perfectly capture the classic-cookbook-look. Reminds me of my grandmother’s duct-taped Betty Crocker cookbook + Betty Draper + McSweeney’s. This cookbook also gives a lovely portrait of the diverse set of soupers that volunteered to make gallons and gallons of soup to raise money for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Soup and Bread is something special, and I am proud to have been a part. You can find our recipe for Spring Vegetable Soup on page 94.

The Soup and Bread Cookbook makes the perfect gift for those who love reading, using, collecting, & eating from cookbooks! You can buy one at the Hideout, Chicago’s Downtown Farmstand, Renegade Handmade, Green Grocer Chicago, Swim Cafe, Quimby’s, and Women & Children First.

ALSO AVAILABLE ONLINE at the official Soup and Bread blog.

*note: This is not a vegetarian cookbook, but its delicious veggie soup recipes are plentiful!

I look forward to the new 2010 season of Soup and Bread! We signed up to make soup again on February 10th. Come eat my cooking in person and support a great cause. You might even end up in a VL webisode.
