Soup Night

Billy Shore“Making the world a better place is usually hard, frustrating work but occasionally it can be fun and exhilarating. Soup Night is the rare book that shows how small changes in your own life can lead to big, joyful change for your community and country.  Soup Night is a delicious recipe for a new way of building community that is as old as humanity itself.  By addressing our hunger for nourishing food, it responds to our universal hunger for connection and purpose.”

Soup Night

Carolyn Wright“Maggie Stuckey lovingly – and deliciously— relays the story of a single street’s weekly neighborly tradition of gathering over bowls of warm and hearty soup. She welcomes us with warmth and generosity to the intimate group, lends us a bowl and spoon and begins the introduction to a new, truly wholesome way to view soup. Her recipes convey warmth and ease, written to consider both the cook and their beloved diners in their thoughtfulness and simplicity. In short, Soup Night will warm your heart— and your stomach.”
Caroline Wright, author of Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals
