To avoid overcooking starchy ingredients like potatoes pasta and rice heat thawed soup only long enough to warm throughout. Miscellaneous Soup Making Tips and Info... If the soup is not intended as the main course count on one quart of soup to serve six adults. As a main dish plan on two servings per quart. A hot soup will help recondition the palate between meal courses or after consumption of alcoholic beverages. Ideally cold soups should be served in chilled dishes. Adjust seasonings of cold soups just before serving. Chilled foods tend to dull the taste buds and will require more seasoning than hot soups. Be aware that herbs will have a more intense flavor if added at the end of the long cooking process. Savory soups and stews always taste better if made a day or two in advance refrigerated and then reheated just prior to serving. Wine is a wonderful flavor addition to soups and stews. When using wine in soup use less salt as the wine tends to intensify saltiness.
Cutlery: Every great soup cook must have at a minimum one high quality chef s knife and one excellent paring knife. Most on our team have 3-4 chef knives in their personal kitchens and swear they can t do without any of them. Having 2 quality paring knives should suffice. We prefer two chef knives Wustoff and Kershaw. These two knives are in the premium tier but not nearly the most expensive but just as high of performers. High quality knives will make your soup prep work much easier safer and enjoyable. We re often asked "what size of knife should my soup kitchen have?" We agree the choices can be perplexing but the answer is not exact. It depends on your hands. The best knife for you will fit your hand comfortably allowing for nimble work. If you have smaller hands you may find a 6-inch or 8-inch blade is perfect.
