“Cold soup is a very tricky thing and it is the rare hostess who can carry it off. 
More often than not the dinner guest  is left with the impression that had he only come a little earlier he could have gotten it while it was still hot.”

Fran Lebowitz, Journalist

“One whiff of a savory aromatic soup and appetites come to attention.  
The steaming fragrance of a tempting soup is a prelude to the goodness to come.  
An inspired soup puts family and guests in a receptive mood for enjoying 
the rest of the menu.”

Louis P. De Gouy, "The Soup Book" (1949)
