All In The Soup Together (Paperback)

$20.00

It’s been an eventful year and what better way to close it out than with a new book of seasonal recipes, reflections, photographs and poetry?  All In The Soup TogetherFour Seasons of Recipes & Reflections was inspired by and dedicated to some of Sulima’s favorite people …  the folks at West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for whom she has enjoyed preparing “group soup” over the years and her 17 Grand & Great-Grandchildren who she hopes will enjoy cooking, sharing, and slurping soup together for a very long time.

At long last and after many requests, Sulima shares some of the soup recipes she’s collected over the years along with a couple of new ones. Each recipe is accompanied by a “reflection” that offers its own special seasoning, as in the case of her West African Chicken Peanut Stew, where she writes …  This recipe came to me decades ago via one of the McMenamin cooks with whom I’d been flirting maybe more than a bit … Seriously though, I was thinking soup. I think he was thinking dessert. Obviously, I got the soup recipe … and that’s all I’m going to say about that.

There’s Gazpacho & Dill Pickle Potato & Avocado Cucumber with Buttermilk & Louisiana Gumbo & Greek Fisherman’s Stew & Sulima’s beloved Ukrainian Borshch, plus 17 more for a total of 23 delicious offerings. And each season is ushered in with a photograph and a poem. The Autumn collection begins with “And Now the Time Between”, reminding us that Things happen. We close our eyes for a minute  and something that was there  is gone. And although not everything planted gets to bloom …. the season of harvest still knocks gently at the screened door.

4 comments on “All In The Soup Together (Paperback)”

  1. Before Sulima, I was just tolerant of soup. Now, transformed by delicious mouthfuls, I beg for recipes. We are lucky to have this collection, and even more fortunate to experience these soups in the company of Sulima’s wise, delectable poems.

  2. All in the Soup Together, the long-awaited collection of some of Sulima’s favorite recipes, is a heart-warming invitation to share. The book is sprinkled, not only with poetry and personal reflections, but with her ever-present encouragement to tinker with what is offered. It comes complete with snippets from her childhood and beyond, nods to the changing seasons (and seasonings), photographs, and heaping servings of love.

  3. This charming book whisks us through the seasons by our senses. How can one resist such soup, each one’s season wrapped in poetry and reflection? Carefully crafted, like her poetry, Sulima’s soups are meant to be shared. Whatever the mood, whatever the time of year, this book guides us to a place where “all at once in the quiet we are holding peace in our hands.”

  4. These recipes are not rigid; the author often suggests ways to modify the basic soup. Since I am always adjusting for food allergies, the recipes work very well for me. The poems set the tone, and offer reminders about the joy of cooking for others.
