The third cookbook in the bestselling Soup Sisters series, filled with treasured family recipes for you to make and share at home.
Sharon Hapton started Soup Sisters in 2009, as a means of providing nutritious, delicious and comforting soup to women and children in need. What began as a single chapter in Calgary, Canada, has now spread to over 20 cities across North America. And with the recently launched Souper Kids program, children ages 8 to 17 are learning how to give back, too, and how to make a real difference in the lives of families who need it the most.
In this compilation cookbook, the third in the bestselling Soup Sisters series, the focus is firmly on family. The Soup Sisters Family Cookbook is aimed at bringing loved ones together—in the kitchen, at the table, and as part of a wider community. The recipes inside will inspire you to do just that—be it by discovering a beloved family recipe passed down through generations, or by trying out one of the simpler soups aimed at getting budding young soup makers into the kitchen.
Inside this collection you will find recipes for wholesome classics like Chicken Noodle and Italian Wedding alongside imaginative, kid-inspired creations like Dragon Soup, Cheeseburger Soup and Green Monster Soup. More than 100 contributors have shared soups for this book, including volunteers, home cooks, and chefs such as Yotam Ottolenghi, Nigella Lawson, Michael Smith, Elizabeth Baird, Anna Olson and Curtis Stone, as well as celebrity “souper” kids Logan Guleff, Abby Major, Zac Kara, and Skylar and Chloe Sinow!
Filled with easy-to-follow recipes, and the wonderful stories behind them, The Soup Sisters Family Cookbook will bring warmth and inspiration to your family’s kitchen.
“Soup Sisters has a unique and simple way of showing kindness in the world: by delivering soup to shelters across North America. I am proud to share my Hamburger Soup recipe in this book. It is a well known favorite with kids! Thank you to Soup Sisters for providing healing nourishment to the young people who need it.” —Sheldon Kennedy, O.C., A.O.E., former NHL player and Lead Director, Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Center “A pot of soup is a universal, inexpensive and nourishing way to show others you care. It is perfect for teaching children the value of making and sharing a meal, especially when they are learning basic cooking skills. This book will inspire your family to cook together, and hopefully, extend your dinner table out into a larger community.” —Julie Van Rosendaal, cookbook author, CBC radio food columnist, food writer and editor
About the Author
SHARON HAPTON is the Founder and CEO of Soup Sisters, and a mother of two who lives in Calgary with her husband of 35 years. On a milestone birthday in 2009, Sharon was inspired to launch Soup Sisters. She has been recognized for her work regionally and nationally, selected as one of Chatelaine’s and CityTV’s Women of the Year, and as a Woman of Vision by Global Television, and was recently given the Meritorious Service Medal by the Governor General of Canada.SOUP SISTERS is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comfort to women, children and youth in crisis through the making, sharing and donating of soup. Soup Sisters has grown to over 20 cities across Canada and the US, and has donated nearly 1 million servings of soup to date. Their Summer Stock and Souper Kids programs, where children make soup for local youth shelters, began in 2013 and 2015, respectively.
In 2009 The Soup Sisters was founded to deliver nutritious and comforting soup to women and children in need. Their first cookbook, Soup Sisters Cookbook, was produced in 2012. Shortly thereafter in 2014, the second book, Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers, was released and now this is the third in the series. This new addition, The Soup Sisters Family Cookbook, features recipes from chefs, food professionals, soup sisters, and children. The brief introduction “Soup Comes Full Circle” even includes letters from children who participated. In the “Getting Started” section you get the basics of what you will need for the soups. For example, Pantry Essentials, Essential Equipment, information on Prepping, even Kitchen Safety. With “Stocking” you get several recipes on how to create chicken, turkey, beef, fish, vegetable stocks. Also information on chilling in storing soup and stock. Recipe chapters include: Garden Growing Magic Beans Noodling Around The Main Event Chill Out Throughout the book, you will see various icons serving to highlight those recipes which are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and also icons indicating helpful hands, or a story to Patel that comes from the person who contributed the recipe. Each recipe contains the name of the contributor as well as a brief description of the recipe or where it came from. The recipes are all very straightforward and although with all soups they do take time, these recipes are not overly complicated. Only about 40% of the recipes have a picture. The pictures are gorgeous and are either on the page with the recipe, the facing page, or are labeled with the name of the recipe and the page number. That makes identifying the recipe you want so much easier. At the end of the recipes is a section with a brief introduction to each of the child chefs who contributed recipes along with the page number of their contribution. I found this is especially enjoyable, and brings a little closer to each of the contributors. Strongly Recommended It is been such a short time since Soup Sisters began but their progress is impressive. They have nearly 30 chapters across Canada and are now making themselves known in the US. There can’t be anything more important than making sure children have enough food to eat. By purchasing this cookbook or any in the series you are helping to support their efforts. Even if this were not the case though, I would strongly recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants a lovely soup. The variety is excellent and the recipes are very approachable.
