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.
It may not be possible to keep fresh soup stock handy so use the best quality packaged stocks possible as a back up. Food Processor: Some soups and stews require the power of a great food processor. We ve heard from many die hard soup aficionados that they enjoy the dicing chopping and mincing with their chef knife. However there are times that a powerful food processor will cut your prep time and provide all the power work needed. Be sure to select one with reasonable volume capacity and the power to chop anything you ll need. We do not recommend a food processor for creaming your soups only prepping ingredients. Hot liquid will tend to leak out beneath the blade and the capacity of the processor is typically not sufficient for larger recipes requiring multiple batches. Soup Tureen: It would be a shame to create masterpiece soups and neglectfully serve them in ordinary serving bowls or pots. There s an elegance to serving your soup in a high quality soup tureen.

A great quality knife is designed to "catch an edge" making your cutting safer and easier and frankly more enjoyable. If you re going to invest in quality cutlery we also suggest an electric knife sharpener that controls the sharpening angle (a perfect 20 degrees). Fresh Ingredients: Fresh. Fresh. Fresh. Nothing can replace the complex and wonderful flavors of fresh vegetables meats herbs and spices. Even ingredients such as olive oil offer the best flavor when freshest.
