METHOD OF SERVING SOUP Soup dishes are always deep. Soup plates are used for dinner soup. Soup bowls and cups are used for luncheon soups. Set soup dishes on a plate slightly larger than the soup dish. A soup spoon is smaller that a tablespoon and larger that a teaspoon. Bouillon spoons are small round-bowled spoons. In using a soup spoon, dip the spoon away from you. Take the soup silently with the lips from the side of the spoon and not the tip. Do not leave spoon in soup dish. When not using it, place on the plate. When soup is served in a bouillon cup it is customary to take a few spoonfuls and then it is permissible to set the spoon on the plate, and drink the remainder of the soup from the cup. It is permissible to put two or three pieces of crackers or toast on top of soup. NEVER crumble crackers or toast in your soup and then stir it.
