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...

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.
