Who doesn’t love a steaming pot of hot soup simmering on the stove-top ready to enjoy on a cold winter day?  It warms our stomachs and soothes our souls.  It has been said to heal our bodies – a bowl of chicken soup given to sick loved ones to help them feel better.  Who doesn’t remember the Seinfeld episode where people waited in long lines, going to outrageous lengths to obtain the perfectly crafted soup (mulligatawny, crab bisque, jambalaya) – NEXT!

What makes us love soup so much?  The earliest evidence of soup being eaten dates back to ancient China.  Soup was eaten by the poor, who combined scraps of food with water to create a flavorful and inexpensive meal. But soup has also been enjoyed by the wealthy too.  The term soup comes from the French word ‘soupe,’ which means ‘a broth.’  Most restaurants feature soups on their menu.  We all love soup!
