»Cooking soup to me is like painting a picture: time, inspiration, and patience are essential. To take a step back from time to time and to contemplate the picture has immensely positive effects. The same goes for soup. It is very beneficial to put on the lid and let it simmer for a while,« says Maurice Maggi.

Humans and soup share an eventful history. Soup was a constant part of the meal plan in any era, layer of society, and in every phase of the human life cycle. In modern culinary culture soup experiences a true renaissance and earns its well-deserved spot at our table.

Maurice Maggi‘s book on soup is a declaration of love to an ancient dish: his recipes are simple, delicious, and always carry an unexpected personal, playful note that is both solid and sophisticated. Traditional recipes are synced with the current zeitgeist. Basic recipes, stories, and the illustrations of Mira Gisler render this book an indispensable gem.

Maurice Maggi: is a chef, gardener, and author. His books »Edible City«, »Simple Variety«, and »Mushrooms from the Forest and from the City« published by AT showcase his creative approach to food. His personal credo is substantial and honest gastronomy.
