Soup Savvy: Mastering the Art of Soup Etiquette and Exploring the World of Soup Bowls

May 8, 2023 Chastine Kurt Petines

Soup is a delightful dish enjoyed worldwide, but only some know the proper etiquette of eating soup. From the variety of soups to the diverse array of soup bowls, let's delve into the world of soup dining.

Soup Etiquette: A Step Towards Graceful Dining

Embracing soup etiquette can significantly enhance your dining experience. Keep the following tips in mind:

Mastering the Soup Spoon

Hold the soup spoon in your dominant hand, resting the handle on the bowl's edge. Gently scoop the soup, avoiding slurping or making noise while eating.

Sipping Soup with Style

Sip soup from the side of the spoon instead of the tip. Refrain from blowing on the soup to cool it down, as it may be seen as impolite.

Handling Soup Mishaps

If soup spills, use your napkin to blot the area gently. For larger spills, request assistance from the server.

Soup Varieties: Diverse Flavours and Techniques

Different soups require unique approaches when eating. Here are some examples:

Clear Soup

Savour clear soup, a light broth-based soup served as an appetiser, by sipping it from the spoon.

Cream Soup

Relish the thicker, cream-based soup by sipping it from the side of the spoon.

Chunky Soup

Enjoy chunky soup packed with vegetables or meat using a spoon and fork to scoop up the ingredients.

Soup Bowls: A Bowl for Every Occasion

Various soup bowls cater to different needs. Here are a few examples:

Classic Soup Bowl

The classic soup bowl, shallow and wide-rimmed, is perfect for clear or cream soups. It is easy to hold and provides ample space for sipping.

Soup Cup

The more minor and profound soup cup is ideal for thicker soups. In addition, its design helps keep the soup warm for longer.

Soup Tureen

The soup tureen, a large, lidded bowl, is perfect for serving soup to a group.
