Michael Joseph. Sept. 2022. 288p. ISBN 9780241486290. $35. COOKING
Allen, an Irish cooking personality and a member of the Ballymaloe Cookery School staff, is back with her latest addition to her extensive cookbook collection. This time she delivers all the comfort that soup and bread can provide. First come the soups, which are organized to take advantage of ingredients and flavors of each season. A wide array of serving accompaniments and garnishes are offered as well, ensuring that each soup rises to meal status. Symbols indicate vegetarian and gluten-free recipes, and notes provide helpful tips and tricks for successful leftovers, make-aheads, and variations. Next is bread. Allen includes recipes for traditional breads, flatbreads, rolls, and more. Note that the metric measurements and temperatures will need to be converted for U.S. users, but for readers who love nothing more than a good bowl of soup and the perfect slice of bread, a bit of math is well worth it.
VERDICT Allen has tapped into the hearts of many with the practicality of her latest book combining recipes for stellar meals. This will find many fans this fall and for seasons to come.
