I’ve been watching and waiting for this book for a long time – now that it’s here, I can report that it’s even better than I had hoped. Soup Day was always a favorite of mine when I worked in a Waldorf Kindergarten, so I expected to find a collection of wonderful, tasty recipes. My expectations are deliciously rewarded — there’s soup for all seasons, occasions and tastes. You’ll love them!
What I didn’t even dare expect was the attention to nutrition and food sources. After reading through The Waldorf School Book of Soups, I’ve decided that next time, I’ll set my hopes to a higher level. This book offers, in the clearest and most concise ways, a thorough introduction to the value of organic and biodynamic food as well as an outstanding overview of some of the most important nutritional principles articulated more fully in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.
In other words, The Waldorf School Book of Soups is just plain excellent and destined to serve families, classes and, most especially, children for years to come.
