Discovering and developing great soup recipes is one of my passions. This is a list of many of the best soups I’ve cooked over the years. There are soups for winter and cold weather, but also spring and summer soups. They are nourishing, satisfying, and dynamic in flavor. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Camino in Oakland hosted a celebration dinner last week based on recipes included in Near & Far - I though I'd share some photos. Also, one of my favorite soups made the menu that night(!) and I've included the recipe here - a brothy, restorative barley soup with chicories punctuated with flecks of preserved lemon, a bit of chile confetti, and a silky dollop of creme fraiche.
By popular request! A wonderfully hearty, slow cooker version of ribollita, the famous Tuscan stew made with bean, vegetables, dark greens, and day-old bread.
Blender soups are great because, often, you need just a few ingredients and a fifteen minutes or so. Take one all-star, seasonal ingredient like winter squash, or broccoli, or asparagus. Beyond that, perhaps an onion, some broth or water, some herbs or spices, boom - you've got what you need to make a beautiful, silky blended soup.
