My father recently declared his intentions to take up soup-making upon his retirement at the end of this school year.
My father does not have cooking skills. When mom is away, he lives on take out, microwave meals, and reheating leftovers. In graduate school, he opened cans very well.
Does anyone have a favorite soup cookbook I can give him? Something that covers the basics of soup-making along with some more interesting stuff to try as he gets better at it and wants to experiment more?
I am, of course, buying Soup for Dummies for him, in answer to him giving me Gardening for Dummies several years ago, but I'd love a few other good ones to go along with it.
