    Ok, so I've pretty much read this book from cover to cover (which I don't always for cookbooks), and now all I want to do is spend the next few months making soups. I want them all!!! Except the fish lol. The book is gorgeous. There are plenty of pictures of the food - not quite for every recipe, which I prefer, but enough, and it can be forgiven since the rest of the photos are from the refugee camp that the author frequently visited, bringing food every week until the idea of the cookbook was Ok, so I've pretty much read this book from cover to cover (which I don't always for cookbooks), and now all I want to do is spend the next few months making soups.

There are plenty of pictures of the food - not quite for every recipe, which I prefer, but enough, and it can be forgiven since the rest of the photos are from the refugee camp that the author frequently visited, bringing food every week until the idea of the cookbook was born. Besides, it's soup... You kinda know what it's gonna look like :). The majority of the recipes also seem fairly simple, without a ton of impossible to find ingredients. And each recipe includes a quote, or a blurb from the chef about why they wanted to participate in the project. So cool!

    This book evolved out of trips made by writer and photographer Barbara Abdeni Massaad to Syrian refugee camps forty-five minutes from her apartment in the Bekka Valley, Lebanon. At least once a week, during the winter of 2014-2015, she put food in the trunk of her car for numerous refugee camps in Lebanon.

At least once a week, during the winter of 2014-2015, she put food in the trunk of her car for numerous refugee camps in Lebanon. There were many who shared her dismay and concern for 3.8 million people who have been displaced throughout the region and live in temporary camps, in need of food and shelter. She enlisted the help of world food writers, chefs and others who love to cook. Everyone contributed recipes for soup, which can be one of the most basic and complete meals. Many of them added comments on food, family, and the conditions of hungry people throughout the world. The book begins with basic stocks: fish, chicken, beef, and vegetable and corn. The book then opens up the world of soup with recipes ready for the making. With full-page photographs of people and food, a beautiful cookbook has been marshaled forth to promote a needy cause. Working with Interlink Press, the profits of the cookbook project “ . . . will be donated to the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR to provide urgently needed food relief for Syrian refugees.” Reviewed by Sheryn Morris, Librarian, Central Library,

    This cookbook was put together to highlight the plight of Syrians having to live in refugee camps. Part of the proceeds go to help these refugees. The collection of soup recipes came from chefs all over the world who donated them to this good cause. The recipes are interesting and I've made a few already, but the best part of the book is the photography, not just of the food, but also of the Syrians living in one camp.

    Can't wait to try some of these recipes. I purchased the book since the proceeds go towards Syrian refugees. Nearly read all the recipes in one evening. Ordered two, one for myself and one for a friend that loves to cook. Going to order two more, one for my daughter-in-law and another friend that collects cookbooks.

    Great soup recipes from the world's leading chefs, as a fundraiser for Syrian refugees. The recipes are easy to follow and I enjoyed the stories behind them. The photographs of the Syrian people are absolutely beautiful. Great soup recipes from the world's leading chefs, as a fundraiser for Syrian refugees.

    Simple, delicious soup recipes—-some are unusual. Beautiful pictures. And the profits benefit refugees. I have given several as gifts.

    Inspiring, from the photos of Syrian refugees to the heartfelt quotes to the wonderful recipes to the lovely shot of each soup. Something to smile about.

    Lots of pictures, but only some of them are of food, and even less are of the actual soups. The recipes themselves are fine, but it's hard to tell how appetizing they'd be without seeing them.

    Cookbooks can often provide more than just recipes. Barbara Abdeni Massaad's Soup for Syria: Recipes to Celebrate Our Shared Humanity certainly proves this thesis.

Barbara Abdeni Massaad's Soup for Syria: Recipes to Celebrate Our Shared Humanity certainly proves this thesis. This is a collection of soup recipes gathered from an international coterie of chefs, food writers and others who contributed to this volume with the idea that some of the proceeds will be used to help Syrian refugees worldwide. The soups are great! They range from a hearty stew of lentils, potatoes and barley that would be perfect on a wintry day to a chilled melon gazpacho that would be great even as a light dessert on a summer's day. The recipes come from all over the world. Appropriately, there are many from all sides of the Mediterranean, and there are some as far away from the Middle East as Thailand and Korea. Most of the soups are fairly easy to make and require no special equipment. Usually they are for four to six servings. The book, however, is more than that. Editor Massaad not only collected and tested the recipes; she also provided the photography for the volume. Of course there are attractive photos of the finished soup or the ingredients of which they consists. There also are, however, photos of Syrians, male, female, old, young, working and playing which collectively invoke a sense of the humanity that's involved with this crisis. If you're interested in cooking, you should buy this cookbook. The recipes will be a great addition for your kitchen. If you are concerned about the plight of modern refugees, you should buy this book and put it on your coffee table where your friends can see it. Invite them over, and fix them some soup.

    The purpose of this cookbook was to raise money to feed Syrian refugees. The author reached out to famous chefs to supply a soup recipe (soup being the world wide comfort food in times of cold and stress and poor health--a healing food.) What is confusing are the recipes and the editing. Do you really need four or six recipes for carrot soup, or lentil soup or potato soup? Proteins are included but in a very limited way.

A few of the recipes draw on natural grains and spices found in the Middle East, but overall, it seems like the chefs were looking for some regional offering to make you think about Syria while eating their soup, and I don't think that works for the value of the book. And I certainly don't expect Syrians refugees buying the book to make the recipes. I didn't see one recipe I wanted to pull aside and try, and that's always a bad sign in a cookbook.

    In een paar dagen tijd heb ik inmiddels drie totaal verschillende soepen uit dit boek geproefd, en die waren erg bijzonder (nog niet eerder zoiets gegeten) en lekker. Ik moest me eerst wel even over het Novib-gehalte heen zetten, met alle foto's van mensen ipv eten. Nu dat gelukt is blader ik (en onze kinderen) eindeloos door alle recepten, die overigens verrassend weinig en makkelijke ingredienten nodig hebben, op zoek naar het volgende project.

    For me recipes need to inspire. I more enjoy the creativity of cooking verse following a formula. I'm sure that's why some of my meals fall flat but the process was enjoyable and I learn. I'm more of a cook than a baker; that requires more precision. So gathering ingredients for soup is perfect. This book inspires with pictures, ingredients and with its quotes.

    The recipes are by famous cooks and humanitarians, but there seems to be little amount of direction,mostly just ingredient, so not a cookbook for anyone who isn't familiar with the styles. The photographs are spectacular. I'm making my first soup this weekend.

    "We can make soup from ingredients from all over the world, so why not peace?" Fernando Gomez. Everyone needs a copy of this beautiful book! Look into the eyes of the survivors of war and think of comfort and of soup. Buy a copy as the proceeds go to the refugees.

    Beautiful recipes with simple, easily available ingredients are what everyone needs in a cookbook. Even ignoring the recipes, this is a sensational book full of wonderful photographs and the profits go to assist Syrian refugees. How could you get better than that!
