Soup is one of the staple foods in a Jesuit community, and there is almost always a pot simmering on the stove. Brother Rick Curry has been a Jesuit for more than forty years. He has traveled the world, lived in many different communities, and prepared many, many pots of soup. This collection includes recipes for sixty of the most popular-everything from the exotic Roasted Red Pepper Soup to the classic Minestrone Milanese to the hearty Corn Chowder. But Brother Curry writes about a lot more than soup. He includes stories to savor about his life in the community of Jesuits: The people he's met; the meals he's enjoyed; and the daily practices of patience, reverence, humility, and care that go into making a good soup and a good life.
