ISO opinions--Vegetable Soups by Deborah Madison

I've checked this book out of the library and am intrigued, but would love some feedback from 'hounds who have used it. Do you like the recipes? Do you feel as though they are largely repeats of her soups in VCFE? Would you recommend it?

I'm in a bit of a time bind, because I need to recommend some gift ideas to relatives, so don't have time to cook from my library's copy before asking for it as a gift. I'm very tempted, and have liked her other books that I own. But, I've also found the food chemistry and physics just seem to work differently in my kitchen then hers, and things that she states will hardly take anytime, take me forever!

  1. I don't have a real answer for you, but if you don't get any info from this post, read the reviews on Amazon. I usually do that for books.

      Thanks, I already checked them out. I'm always reluctant to rely too much on them, because it's hard to have much of a context for them. They may be folks who really don't even like to cook (and when you read some of the comments, that is really the way some come across!) Thanks for the idea, though.
