The only other book solely on chicken soup besides mine that I have ever seen

Mimi's book is a delightful collection of international recipes for making chicken soup. I discovered it after I had finished writing my book on the same subject CHICKEN SOUPS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. I couldn't believe that someone else was a crazy as me to spend so much time and effort researching and preparing this one dish. I loved her recipes and her personal descriptions. Obviously she comes from the same ethnic background as mine where Jewish chicken soup is synonomous with fighting a cold and winning plus savoring the comfort it brings. I really enjoyed comparing and contrasting our recipes. Mimi concentrated more on the rich traditions of European cooking where we both share a common ancestry. However, I believe I went farther afield to explore more regions of the world than she did. I have included more exotic recipes from places like Ethiopia, Armenia, Kenya, Tunisia, Peru, Indonesia, and Latvia. Also, I explored some of the indigenous regions of the U.S. like Wyoming, the Carolinas, Louisiana, Alaska, Hawaii, and New Mexico. In any case, I feel you can't know too many ways to make this incredibly healing and nutritious meal.
