Cookbook author Beatrice Ojakangas truly proves there is a soup (and bread) for every season in this collection of recipes. Arranged by season, the offerings run the gamut of chilled fruit soups to hearty stews. Each soup is paired with a bread. The breads run from hearty loaves to popovers to muffins to crackers. Everyone can find soups and breads in this volume to satisfy their hunger. The volume contains an index of recipes and an index by ingredients. If the volume had offered at least some illustrations, I would have given it a perfect star rating. The absence, however, weakens a cookbook in this day and age. I received an advance review copy from the publisher through Edelweiss for review purposes. The opinions are my own. I plan to purchase my own copy of this book as it seems a great way to eat lighter flavorful meals.

    As far as I am concerned, soup + bread = perfect dinner. This book had many wonderful recipes. I made a wonderful Moroccan soup w couscous for a dinner party and everyone adored it. Yum.

    I am one of those nerds who like to read cookbooks. For me, the thing that constitutes a cookbook that is fun to read is a bit of history, a bit of narrative, some instruction, and great recipes. This cookbook fell a little short on those counts and wasn't a great read, but the recipes turned out really fabulously. Ojakangas built this book with soup and an accompanying bread to go with it, so the net result was that there were an equal number of soup and bread recipes.

I made a few recipes from the book, but I'll discuss just two of them here. By now, those who read my reviews know that I love to make bread... not the super easy way. I've been experimenting with some fairly complicated artisan breads. So what ended up being outstanding bread from this book? A simple Amish White Bread recipe and Old Fashioned Cream Scones. The bread came out with a fine moist crumb and the cream scones were beautiful and went fast. Both recipes were family favorites and didn't last long. You can go to my blog for more on the recipes I made from this book (marychrapliwy.blogspot.com). Overall, this was an excellent cookbook with recipes that were as tasty as they looked in the book.

Bread recipes are scattered throughout the book and are paired with select soups. There is also a chapter on soup basics, such as how to make broths and stocks, and an introduction to baking bread. However, the recipes may be too advanced for the novice cook, and some of the ingredients may be hard to find or expensive. Dieters should beware that the soups are not necessarily healthy or low in calories, fat, or carbohydrates. However, for the intrepid foodie, this book does contain a variety of interesting and unique soup and bread recipes. Anna C. / Marathon County Public Library Find this book in our library catalog.

    Really fantastic! I've marked so many recipes to try. Many of her recipes are close to ones I'm already using - but seem to always have a brilliant tweak - an additional ingredient or companion bread that sounds wonderful. Very nice prose.

    You can tell that autumn is approaching as there is a veritable windfall of books offering up recipes for good winter warmers like soups (even though, of course, soups can be enjoyed all year round). This fairly thick book is no exception, promising the soup lover 75 different soups and breads to accompany them, with inspiration drawn from all around the world. An obvious combination, you will hopefully agree, yet something often overlooked by other soup-orientated recipe books where, perhaps, a You can tell that autumn is approaching as there is a veritable windfall of books offering up recipes for good winter warmers like soups (even though, of course, soups can be enjoyed all year round). This fairly thick book is no exception, promising the soup lover 75 different soups and breads to accompany them, with inspiration drawn from all around the world. An obvious combination, you will hopefully agree, yet something often overlooked by other soup-orientated recipe books where, perhaps, a few breads might be given as a bit of an afterthought to serve up with the soup "main course." Here the recipes solely do the talking, aided by some nice photography (of course!). Introductions and arty "theme-setters" are kept to a minimum. First you get the basics, the building blocks for many soups and breads and then everything is split into four big chapters, one for each season. A word of caution, you would be well advised to browse sequentially through this book at least once and resist the temptation to just dip in and out. Many nuggets of good, actionable information can be found and it is worthy of a read. Of course, something has to come along and burst a bubble of perfection. Our usual niggles, in other words, namely the lack of a clear preparation and cooking time and the reliance on sole U.S. measures. Why, why, WHY! One can sort of forgive the false economy of not giving each recipe its own colour photograph, one can understand differences over design but think of a harassed or uncertain cook, give them a break and also remember that there are foreigners who might buy your book and be unfamiliar with cups and ounces as measures. This pre-release review copy was missing the index and the usual other stuff found at the end of a book so we don't know if one should be insulted by the inclusion of a conversion table or not. Hopefully there is a very detailed usable index to aid navigation and cross-reference otherwise you are sunk! The range and selection of recipes is quite pleasing, although the instructions are rather terse and perhaps less beginner-friendly. All in all a fairly pleasing attempt with some pleasant packaging, but the higher the price the fussier the buyer can justifiably be and thus this overall package might be slightly-overpriced - it might come solely down to whether you "click" with it or not and whether you particularly need another soup-orientated book or not. As it is, we will give this book the benefit of the doubt as it is sufficiently different to make it a warranted four YUM (star) thing but with the various omissions and quirks it might not deserve a five YUM award. In any case, it is worthy of closer consideration. The Soup and Bread Cookbook, written by Beatrice Ojakangas and published by Rodale Books. ISBN 9781609613624, 320 pages. Typical price: USD23.99.

With such a variety available from the rich Roasted Red Pepper Soup to the basic stock recipes. This is the cookbook for any soup lover like myself. It even goes so far as to match the soups with a bread side. Not being the best at making bread I was interested to see if I would be able to manage the recipes included in The Soup and Bread Cookbook. Divided into seasons the soups were suited to the warm summer and the blustery winter nights. I made the Roasted Red Pepper Soup and tried my hand at the Herbed Biscuit Muffins. The soup was as easy as could be and so delicious that there were no left overs. My family has experienced my bread making attempts in the past and were dubious about trying the muffins. With a little trepedation I watched the basket travel around the table and each to one. Then sighed in relief as the basket soon became empty. For my mother I made her favorite, Fresh Pea Soup and the Egg Salad Sandwiches. She actually asked me if I would make it again soon, as she liked it so much. My nephew how like myself despises peas tried it and told me he liked the way it tasted. I am ashamed to say I only had a sandwich but was surprised how easy the whole wheat bread was to make. I also made the rye bread to make Rueben Sandwiches with. Both were better than any bread I have bought in the store. Thank you for making it so easy. I now have beef, vegetable and chicken stock canned on my extra refrigerator's shelf for future use and a new confidence in my abilities to make bread. With the holidays soon to be upon us I look forward to trying a few of these recipes for visiting family during the holidays. Especially the yeast rolls and Cinnamon Raisin Walnut Bread. I hope to can some of the soups for easy use for the family when our schedules are so hectic that a quick meal doesn't have to be unhealthy and full of preservatives. Unsure of the time frame to keep these soups I only made only what I could use within the month. The still tasted as great as the day I made them. I have not tried freezing any of the breads yet so I can not give an opinion of freezing them. But they truly were so easy that it is simple to make them as I need them. I hope you will try the Soup and Bread Cookbook. The recipes are so easy to follow. Anyone can look like an experienced cook. Just stand back and accept the praise that is sure to come your way.

Bea Ojakangas is a living legend in my hometown of Duluth, Minnesota. She had a restaurant for a time in our neighborhood. It was called Somebody’s House and served terrific sandwiches and other comfort foods. Thus, I was thrilled when I was offered an advanced copy of her book, The Soup and Bread Cookbook. This is what I learned about her from a feature article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “The year was 1957, and a young cook, wife and soon-to-be first-time mother living on a military base in England entered her recipe for cheese bread into the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Beatrice Ojakangas didn't win first place that year -- the top prize went to Mrs. Gerda Roderer of Berkeley, Calif., who received $25,000 for her "Accordion Treats," a delicate horn-shaped walnut cookie. But Ojakangas' bread took the second grand prize and helped launched an enduring career that has included 27 cookbooks on a wide range of subjects, from whole grain breads to casseroles to pot pies to her specialty, Scandinavian cooking and baking. Ojakangas first appeared in Taste in a 1978 profile, the first of seven such features during the intervening 32 years (she was also a frequent contributor to the section in the 1990s). She may not have won the top prize, but in retrospect, Ojakangas may be the Bake-Off's biggest success story. After all, how many other food careers were launched with a single recipe?” The University of Minnesota Press recently reissued one of her popular cookbooks, The Soup and Bread Cookbook, which was first published in 2013. Actually, the University Press has declared that her cookbooks will never go out of print, because in part, she is the only Minnesota cook and cookbook author who is a James Beard prize winner. I gave this particular cookbook to my sisters for Christmas this year. What I like about this particular cookbook is that the recipes are grouped by season. As I have learned from my own cooking, soup is seasonless when seasonal vegetables are used. And that is the point of her grouping by season. We are using the vegetables, etc. that we know are available during that particular season. I recently made her Cream of Tomato soup that was linked with her recipe for grilled cheese sandwiches. Ah, you say, I know how to make grilled cheese, but have you ever made it with sliced apples and basil? The whole thing was so satisfying and comforting. I am ready to try some other recipes.

When I read about the Walleye chowder I could see coming off the lakes of Wisconsin with my fresh catch and creating an a fantastic pot of soup. Even more amazing is the expansive list of breads that are available to match with the soups. There are some great "comfort food" type breads like flower pot bread and buttermilk corn muffins. You will also find a variety of breads that you have never tried before like Lavash or Cracker Bread. Sometimes the author even provides you with a more delicious treat by using the bread to make a Panini or a Avocado Tomato Wrap which was delicious. Nothing tastes better together than fresh bread and a delicious bowl of soup, and this book takes care of all the planning work for you.

I found the instructions clear and most recipes are very simple. Some soups have a delicate flavor while others are very hearty and filling. The author suggests pairings of specific soups and breads but encourages experimentation. The recipes are also grouped by season to encourage the use of seasonal ingredients. Scattered throughout the book are pages devoted to hints grouped by topic such as creating and cooling stock and variations on a basic roll recipe. I like that the author gives instructions for both manual and the use of a bread machine on many bread recipes. The vivid photos will make your mouth water. My favorite recipes include: Roasted Red Pepper Soup paired with Herbed Biscuit Muffins (p. 25-26), New Potato and Chive Soup paired with Onion-Dill Buns (p. 66-67), Spiced Zucchini Soup paired with Sun-dried Tomato & Pesto Bread (p. 125-127), Rosemary Focaccia (p. 36), Cheddar Cheese Onion Scones (p. 62) and Lavash (p. 181) I received a digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is a compilation of soup and bread recipes paired up as simple meals. The book is divided up by the seasons: Springtime, Summertime, Autumn and Winter. The book begins with the basics: Stocks, broths and "basic breads". Various tips for making broths, and tips for bread. It covers various seasonings and toppings for bread, how the different additions affect the bread flavor and consistency.

Enjoy Yam and Sweet Onion Soup & Buttermilk Corn Muffins in the Autumn, and snuggle under a blanket in Winter with some Onion Barley Soup with Mushrooms & Honey Bran Muffins. My final word: I love the idea of this book. I'm a big fan of soup and bread for dinner or lunch! There is a great variety of soups and breads to be found, and the book abounds with beautiful color photos. I also love the way that it is divided by seasons. That makes it so simple to pick something for dinner!

And, something that is most appealing personally, some even include cultural notes for how the meals are normally served and what they can signify! The photography is gorgeous, including some really appetizing looking full table spreads to show off some of the recipes. The images generally include at least two pieces in them (one soup and one bread), which does help to make up for the fact that there are only so many photos. Of course, you can only show so much when your recipes are almost exclusively soups and breads.

    This cookbook has great ideas for seasonal soups. While I'm not a talented baker of bread, I was also able to recreate the bread recipes I tried with ease. I particularly liked the potato and leek soup and the cream of brie soup. The instructions on soup and bread making basics would also be very useful to novice cooks. While not all the recipes are super healthy, most can be lightened up with a little common sense and ingenuity--such as using skim milk or Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream.

    Of course, I haven't made all the soups and breads in this book (and probably never will) but I have tried her egg and lemon soup (cf. avgolemono) and it was very good. I did not make the pitas suggested with it (too hot for baking) but given how my supermarket likes to hide them in a different place each time, I may do that before long.

    Ah, bread and soup, one of my favorite things on a cold day! This cookbook has many tasty photographs and ideas. The recipes are clearly explained and offer a wide variety. Everything from French Onion Soup to Swedish Yellow Pea Soup (sounds and looks exotic). However, I think this would be best for intermediate to expert level in the kitchen. Some recipes call for 10+ ingredients. Sadly, not a lot of people (my age anyhow) know what to do with yeast.

    ARC provided by Netgalley - Rodale Books I enjoy cooking so this was a really nice book to read. I originally wanted to read it for the bread recipes alone but they have some lovely soups that I want to try out. The farmhouse style pictures really helped with my enjoyment of the book as well. I think the great thing about this book was that it was divided by seasons which is really helpful. I can see this book becoming a great go to book for me.

    Some solid recipes worth trying, not every one is stellar. I judge all soup recipe books on the complexity of some of our family favorites, and those in this book, such as french onion were too simple and bland. Worth a borrow from the library.
