Determining the qualification for a soup cookbook author is a
process with many variables. It seems best to have someone with skills in
cooking and writing, plus a general appreciation for soup. Considering the
various qualities and talents of Yolanda Fintor and Carla L. Henry, they are the
perfect combination for writing the low-calorie cookbook Souper Skinny Soups.
Fintor grew up in a family of Hungarian parents and
grandparents. A big kettle of chicken soup with vegetables and homemade egg
noodles was a Sunday staple of the home. Soup was a regular course of meals
during her youth. "Looking back," says Fintor, "I realize what an
important staple these filling, full-bodied meals had been in my life. They
seemed to nourish my soul as well as my body." Later as a wife and mother
of one, Fintor realized the importance of watching calories and fat and spent
her days in the kitchen using substitutes approved by Weight Watchers, the
American Heart Association, and the Pritikin program.
Both women are published writers from fiction to poetry to special interest
articles and were excutive board members of the California Writers' Club.
Fintor's work has appeared in Woman's World, the Los Angeles Times,
and Our Family magazine.
