Meanwhile a cook with refined taste during this final moment bringing a variety of seasonings spices can turn a seemingly mediocre soup into a masterpiece. Finally the soup is ready and removed from heat but then the real chef does not hurry to serve it on the table. He will pour it in a tureen let it brew under the cover of 7 to 20 minutes so the spices and salt evenly penetrated into the meat or other ingredients and the liquid part of the soup was not watery but have acquired a nice thickish texture. This soup has a strong flavor tenderness softness proper temperature and therefore well perceived by organs of touch smell and digestion. Eating soup stretches your food dollars and is healthy to boot. Mixing in a pot of water whatever ingredients you have on hand is cheap and filling.
Wine should be added at a ratio of no more than 1/4 cup of wine to 1 quart of soup. Beer is also a good addition to soups and stews. A good rule of thumb is 1 cup of beer to 3 cups of soup. Freeze the liquids drained from canned mushrooms or vegetables for later use in soups or stews. Since liquids boil at a lower temperature at high altitudes cooking time may need to be extended at altitudes above 2500 feet. Soups and stews should only simmer while cooking never brought to a hard boil. "Is it soup yet?" Naturally the best soups are made with a base of homemade broth and fresh ingredients but this method can be very time-consuming and labor intensive. If you like time spent in the kitchen preparing soup may be reduced by using canned or frozen broths and vegetables while still yielding an excellent product. Remember there are no really good quick soup recipes because any truly good soup needs time during preparation for flavor to fully develop. Always plan on providing enough time to prepare a really good soup or stew.

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.
We are fans of stainless steel for practical cooking and silver pewter ceramic and other high quality weighted ladles for serving. Decorative handles shapes sizes a variety of exotic decorative metals and textures make choosing your soup ladles an artistic decision that will offer your table the perfect finishing touch. Spices: Often a soup aficionado s desire to tackle a new and exotic recipe may be cut short by the list of rare hard to find spices that it requires. The true soup chef must clear a shelf in their spice cabinet (freezing infrequently used spices will help lengthen their life) and expand on their spice inventories. The soup kitchen s spice rack should never limit ones ability to tackle a new and exotic recipe. Of course we are talking about real tasty good-quality Soups.
