Where to buy it


The third cookbook in the bestselling Soup Sisters series, filled with treasured family recipes for you to make and share at home.

Sharon Hapton started Soup Sisters in 2009, as a means of providing nutritious, delicious and comforting soup to women and children in need. What began as a single chapter in Calgary, Canada, has now spread to over 20 cities across North America. And with the recently launched Souper Kids program, children ages 8 to 17 are learning how to give back, too, and how to make a real difference in the lives of families who need it the most.
     In this compilation cookbook, the third in the bestselling Soup Sisters series, the focus is firmly on family. The Soup Sisters Family Cookbook is aimed at bringing loved ones together—in the kitchen, at the table, and as part of a wider community. The recipes inside will inspire you to do just that—be it by discovering a beloved family recipe passed down through generations, or by trying out one of the simpler soups aimed at getting budding young soup makers into the kitchen.
     Inside this collection you will find recipes for wholesome classics like Chicken Noodle and Italian Wedding alongside imaginative, kid-inspired creations like Dragon Soup, Cheeseburger Soup and Green Monster Soup. More than 100 contributors have shared soups for this book, including volunteers, home cooks, and chefs such as Yotam Ottolenghi, Nigella Lawson, Michael Smith, Elizabeth Baird, Anna Olson and Curtis Stone, as well as celebrity “souper” kids Logan Guleff, Abby Major, Zac Kara, and Skylar and Chloe Sinow!
     Filled with easy-to-follow recipes, and the wonderful stories behind them, The Soup Sisters Family Cookbook will bring warmth and inspiration to your family’s kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

“Soup Sisters has a unique and simple way of showing kindness in the world: by delivering soup to shelters across North America. I am proud to share my Hamburger Soup recipe in this book. It is a well known favorite with kids! Thank you to Soup Sisters for providing healing nourishment to the young people who need it.” —Sheldon Kennedy, O.C., A.O.E., former NHL player and Lead Director, Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Center
“A pot of soup is a universal, inexpensive and nourishing way to show others you care. It is perfect for teaching children the value of making and sharing a meal, especially when they are learning basic cooking skills. This book will inspire your family to cook together, and hopefully, extend your dinner table out into a larger community.” —Julie Van Rosendaal, cookbook author, CBC radio food columnist, food writer and editor
