Ski Town Soups

Ski Town Soups: the book that will have you reaching for a spoon.


A pot of soup simmering on the stove evokes an immediate sense of place: In the case of Ski Town Soups, a collection of 100 recipes, those places are the restaurants dotting North America’s ski resorts. From the hearty venison chili ladled at Aspen’s iconic J-Bar to the elegant butternut squash bisque served at Floradora Saloon in Telluride, these are the soups that pull you in on a cold day and warm both the body and the soul. Vail resident—and admitted soup addict—Jennie Iverson has tracked down the inviting recipes and collected them in a book that speaks of snowy days and, ultimately, comfort. For anyone who’s had a soothing bowl of chowder after a day on the slopes, Ski Town Soups is a must-have on the cookbook shelf. skitownsoups.com
