Ginna BB Gordon The Soup Kit Book Event

We will add more details about this event as they become available.

Soup is universally loved. On a cold day, it feels good to wrap your fingers around a warm cup of Tomato Bisque; in the sick- bed, just the aroma of Chicken Noodle makes you feel better, nurtured and well fed. At the bottom of a ski run, at a picnic, in a lunchbox thermos or on the table, a bowl of soup brings a warm glow to the body, gives strength and brings a smile and a sigh as the spoon is dipped in the broth.

Not just a book of 77 delicious recipes and lots of photos, The Soup Kit is a comprehensive map to good soup. It presents everything a cook needs to know about the subject, step by step: a bit of history, a lot of spice and herb info borrowed from world cultures, notes about thickeners and other additions, tips for the right vegetable cut, and when to add which ingredient. The resulting soups have layers of flavor and are chock full of nutrition.

Herein is the author’s own path to glorious soup, learned through years of following master chefs, growing vegetables and herbs, and creating food from scratch. From the selection of ingredients to the creation of the final garnish, The Soup Kit offers a diversity of styles and opportunities. The Soup Kit is a unique book that belongs in every kitchen.

Ginna BB Gordon has owned businesses (Ginna’s Café, The Book Studio, and Ginna & Co.) and managed kitchens and cafés in other folks’ businesses (Rainbow Ranch, Calistoga, CA; Chopra Center for Well Being, La Jolla, CA; the Thunderbird Bookshop & Café and the Cornucopia Café & Market, both in Carmel, CA). She has produced special events for non-profits such as Carmel Music Society, Carmel Bach Festival and the American Tall Ship Institute, and for private clients including Steven Seagal at his home near Los Angeles.

Ginna’s first cookbook was A Simple Celebration – the Nutritional Program for the Chopra Center for Well Being (Random House/Harmony Books). She also authored Bonnebrook and The Gingerbread Farm, memoirs of the teachers and styles of cooking she has experienced on her journey as a chef. Ginna’s fourth cookbook was First You Grow the Pumpkin, her favorite tricks for growing, preserving and creating in the kitchen.

Currently, Ginna and her husband, singer and author David Gordon, are partners in Lucky Valley Press, a design and pre-press service for indie authors.
