Soup may be the first course of a meal or it can be the whole meal. A steaming hot bowl of soup is wonderful to warm up to on a cold winter day while a bowl of chilled gazpacho or fruit soup can be perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day. Soup is a basic term used to describe a liquid food made from any combination of vegetables fruit meat and/or fish cooked in a liquid. This article will discuss some of the more common variations of soup and offer information and tips on preparing serving and storing homemade soups. Common Types of Soup... Bisque - a thick rich cream soup usually containing seafood. Newer recipes may use poultry or vegetables in place of seafood. At one time bisques were thickened with rice but today they are more frequently thickened with roux.
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.

Fortunately there are soup bowls that match every taste and style and even some so exotic they may only match the soup! We suggest keeping 3-4 soup bowl varieties for your table. You ll want the sets to accommodate a large variety of soup options so no matter where your soup cooking creativity takes you your bowls will be ready. We suggest wide saucer bowls deep stocky bowls for heartier soups and stews medium size set with a comfortable handle and a decorative set that can handle the most exotic soup creations. The last thing a soup aficionado should do is put their culinary creation into a plane-jane cereal bowl. Soup Ladle: Though many soup tureens are sold with matching lids and ladles we encourage you to want more. There are luscious soup ladles that will rest in your hand like an old friend giving your soup presentation and serving experience an unmatched finishing quality. There are certainly tried and true traditional ladles that are available at a variety of stores but over time you ll see their enamel scratch and rust creep in.
