The Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers Cookbook

More than 100 Heart-Warming Seasonal Recipes 
for You to Cook at Home 
Edited by Sharon Hapton
Trade Paperback, 216 pages

Oooh! It's that time again. Nothing says love like a warm bowl of soup after a long day. Hey, I've been known to have noodle soups for breakfast. Especially when I have a scratchy throat. I've been told that many cultures have soup for breakfast. Or noodles. Possibly both. I don't know. I just know I like it.

And combine healing, healthy, warming soups with the spirit of helping and sharing and you have a winning combination. Soup Sisters started in Canada and is bringing its warmth to Los Angeles, California for the first American chapter.

So far the Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers have donated over 350,000 containers of soup to those in need.

Buying this cookbook not only gets you 100 delicious recipes, but helps keep hearts and tummies filled and warm. 

The first book, The Soup Sisters Cookbook, and this new one, The Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers Cookbook are first rate collections of deliciousness from celebrity chefs, restaurant owners and home chefs.

Soup Sisters believes in the power of soup and the nutrition, comfort, and warmth that the gift of soup can bring. As well as working with women's shelters, Soup Sisters also operates Broth Brothers, which focuses on work with youth crisis centers across the country, providing support to young men who are working to support themselves. The Soup Sisters' growing network of supporters collectively cook up more than 10,000 servings of soup every month.
