Of Soup and Love...

  • Old Spanish proverb: "Of soup and love, the first is best!"
  • Soup can be traced back to almost 6000 BC. The first recorded soup was said to be made from hippopotamus and the hearts of five sparrows.
  • Despite it's French name, vichyssoise (cold potato soup) was first prepared in New York City at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (albeit by French Chef Lois Diat who was born near Vichy, France).
  • The word soup is said to come from the word "sop", which was said to be a stewlike dish where bread was used for sopping up the liquid.
  • Dr. John T. Torrance invented the first condensed soup in 1897 while working as a chemist for the Campbell Soup Company.
