This is a review for the cookbook Soups and One-Pot Meals the 100 Best Recipes from around the World by Christian Teubner (1998)
The first thing I noticed about the recipe design is that the ingredients list was centered making it a little more difficult to read. Plus more multiple ingredients were sometimes listed on one line, making it even more difficult to comprehend.
The photos in the book are gorgeous. I love cookbooks with lots of photos and this book doesn’t disappoint. Every recipe has beautiful professional photos on its pages.
The book starts off with stock recipes, and then is divided into countries/regions. A few recipes include photos with every step but unfortunately, it’s difficult to see the details because the photos are too small.
Personally I don’t know how many recipes I would actually make, but there are a lot if great ideas to take to your own recipes, and the price is right at the Amazon.com marketplace. With shipping, you can grab a used copy of this book for under $5.
I love reading cookbooks, like some people love reading novels! I am inspired by recipes, and enjoy learning ideas from cookbooks; I like putting my own spin on a recipe rather than exactly following it. Please keep in mind that my opinions might be completely different from the other home cooks.
