Contributors include Alice Waters and Anthony Bourdain, and the recipes from around the world range from gondi (a Persian-Jewish meat-dumpling soup) from Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi to Mark Bittman’s Korean-Style Beef Or Pork Soup With Rice to Greg Malouf’s Fennel Soup With Lemon And Cinnamon.
