Как приготовить вкусный суп

Soup (from fr. Soupe) - a liquid dish (usually the first), common in many countries. A distinctive feature of the soup is, first of all, the fact that the soup includes at least 50% of the liquid (it is sometimes said that when cooking, the rule “the soup should have half the liquid” should be applied); secondarily (for hot soups) - the soup is cooked by cooking, in most cases - in water.

Soup, as a dish in its current understanding, was formed no more than 400–500 years ago, with the appearance of strong, non-oxidizable and chemically neutral dishes that allow for the cooking process. At the same time, it should be noted that in the East (Ancient China and close regions) soups arose earlier, about 100 years BC, and again due to the earlier emergence of suitable dishes. This does not mean that previously people did not use cooking - this method of cooking emerged with the advent of clay and stone dishes (V. V. Pokhlebkin calls the latter the most suitable for making soups [4]). However, it is necessary to distinguish soup as a dish, where its components are inseparable parts, creating a common taste, a common composition, and simply boiled products or a mixture of them, where cooking was merely the goal of heat treating the product. The resulting decoction in this case, at least in primitive times, was not used.

With the advent of dishes, acquaintance with earthenware and porcelain and cutlery, the soup began to spread first in Southern Europe in the XV-XVI centuries, and became widespread only by the XVII-XVIII centuries. Of course, cooking methods, recipes for soups were added up earlier.
