A new cookbook from chef Jean-Paul Frère titled, “The Art of Soup Making”, features 32 delicious recipes for leftover soup.
“Most soup cookbooks on the market right now only contain recipes with long ingredient lists, complicated preparation, and excessive simmering,” said Frère, who spent 2 years in the south of France perfecting each dish in the book. “Using techniques I developed, home cooks can make amazing meals by taking leftover soup out of the fridge and sticking it in the microwave for a couple seconds.”
“There are tons of recipes in the book, from lukewarm gazpacho to frozen clam chowder to beef stew where the meat is still a little cold,” continued Frère, who said he was inspired to write the book after some chicken noodle soup went bad in his fridge. “I love the recipe where you take a quart of leftover french onion soup from TGI Friday’s and let it sit out on the counter for a bit. It’s great for a big crowd.”
At press time, Frère hinted at plans for his next book, which features microwaving techniques for old dumplings, half-eaten burritos, and frozen pizza.
