5 Cool Facts about Hot Soup

  • The word ‘soup’ is known to be derived from outdated words, sop or sop. In ancient times it was a simple broth-like substance drenched over bread for easy consumption by the elderly or sick.
  • The beginning of the modern era applauded the first public presentation of steaming hot soup by the restaurant business when it was served in the early 1700s at a posh Paris eatery.
  • The first American settlers had a handy ‘pocket soup’ – almost like the contemporary bouillon cube. All that needed to be done to produce a heartwarming liquid chow was to pour hot water over it and add available root vegetables.
  • The phrase to ‘eat soup’ as opposed to ‘drink soup’ comes from the assumption that soup is a venerable part and parcel of the meal. Moreover, most do not sip soup from a cup, but consume it (read: eat it) with the aid of a spoon. 
  • Although soup comes in all forms and consistencies, chicken soup has been unceremoniously dubbed as ‘mom’s delicious cure-all medicine’.
