Soup’s First: A Collection of Favorite Soups from Dobie’s Corner Restaurant, Ghent , Ohio, 1994. A difficult-to-find cookbook! Paper covered cookbook with spiral binding and 40 pages. In absolutely as-if-new condition. Obviously never used. Written by the owner and chef of Dobie’s Corner, George Dobrin. Self-published in 1994. There are postcards in the back of the book,, to mail in with $12.95 to Mr. Dobrin, who retired to Munroe Falls, Ohio.
I wonder if the residents of Ghent, Ohio, knew what a marvel they had in their little local restaurant. Because these soup recipes are some of the most varied and splendid-sounding soup recipes I’ve ever ever read. I’m including the table of contents for both the hot and the chilled soups here, so you can make your mouth water. (I’m going to copy this entire book before sending it to you. I’ll be careful with it. )
