Twelve Months of Monastery SoupsSimple, imaginative, earthy recipes from the author of From a Monastery Kitchen
"Soup stands for me as one of the great treats of culinary art and to have such recipes so happily and deliciously recorded is indeed a pleasure. The monthly format, with emphasis on seasonal cooking, makes it a special joy to turn each page. The period block prints only add to the delights of this unique book. My congradulations to Brother Victor-Antoine."
Michael Lomonaco Executive Chef, '21' club, New York City
"Brother Victor-Antoine's collection of easy and earthy soup recipes are most appealing, and include excellent variety for all seasons of the year."
Pierre Franey, chef and cookbook author.
Modern science has begun to appreciate the age old-wisdom of a diet focused more on vegetables and less on meat. Yet how do we find the time to cook these dishes? Surely a hot soup ranks as the easiest and tastiest way to do so. Brother Victor-Antoine offers us nearly 200 variations on this theme. They all provide abundant servings of the vegetables we so greatly need. This work will help lead many back to simpler, healthier cuisine!"
