Kate Adams is the author of THE FLAT TUMMY CLUB DIET and the founder of The Flat Tummy Club, which have been covered widely in the press, featuring in ZEST, the DAILY MAIL, HARPER'S BAZAAR, the TIMES and HEALTH & FITNESS. Kate is a popular social media presence with over 1,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter. Nicole Pisani is a chef who has worked at Yotam Ottolenghi's Soho restaurant NOPI, and Anna Hansen's Modern Pantry in London. She has a passion for creating healthy and vibrant dishes with interesting ingredients and spice combinations. Kate and Nicole created Food For Happiness (www.foodforhappiness.co.uk). Their first cookbook, MAGIC SOUP, was published in 2015.
Soup is the liquid lunch of choice this January and "souping" is the ultimate healthy alternative to high-sugar juice diets, according to the authors of this follow-up to the evangelical Magic Soup: Food For Health And Happiness, which came out last year. Their second book contains easy-to-follow meal plans along with a host of satisfying nutrient- and fibre-rich soup and broth recipes. Adams herself lost two-and-a-half stone through souping - and kept it off - while her co-author Pisani is a chef who used to work at Yotam Ottolenghi's celebrated London restaurant Nopi. The Ultimate Soup Cleanse consigns to the blender the myth that soup cannot be a hearty meal in itself. -- Caroline Sanderson * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
