Soup, Broth, Bread

By Rachel Allen

Recipes to warm the heart and restore the soul

A bowl of soup can do so many things. A cosy, comforting meal on a cold, dark winter’s day. A gentle broth to heal and soothe. A fresh, vibrant celebration of spring produce, or a simple and nourishing way to use up leftovers. For feeding many mouths, for lunch in a hurry, for a dinner-party starter, or for filling the freezer: no matter your need, there’s a soup to solve it.

In Soup Broth Bread, acclaimed chef and cookery writer Rachel Allen gathers together every recipe for soup you could ever want. She also shares an array of wonderful homemade breads to serve alongside, as well as easy and delicious garnishes, drizzles, salsas, croutons and crumbs to add the perfect finishing touch. This definitive book will bring bowlfuls of joy to your kitchen for many years to come.
