22 soup and 25 bread recipes from the author's collection, along with appropriate quotations from historical and literary figures. Published 1995. 24 research notes, 37 pages. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Soft cover, saddle-stitched. ISBN-13: 978-0-925117-78-6. ISBN-10: 0-925117-78-1.
Apropos quotations plus personal anecdotes by the author make A Bowl of Soup, a Crust of Bread, and Thou fun to read. Patricia B. Mitchell, the writer (and collector of all manner of food-related factoids and quotes), includes passages which the reader will want to read aloud to somebody. “Only the pure of heart can make a good soup” (attributed to Ludwig Von Beethoven) is an example of such a quotation.
Delectable recipes like “Color Me Beautiful Potato Soup,” “Marcelle Bienvenu's Cream of Leek Soup,” “Low-Fat Seafood Gumbo,” and “Tidewater Plantation Oyster Stew” will fill your kitchen with tempting aromas, and, ultimately, your stomach with good nourishment. Breads like “Feel-Well Wheat Germ Biscuits,” “Maize 'n' Mozzarella Dodgers,” “Yeasty Grits Bread,” and “Pane di Campagna” (Hearty Country Loaf) are worthy accompaniments to the hearty soups.
