Soup Spoons – Spoons used in the table are designed for specific purposes, established according to the needs. If the soup is part of your meal, for example, the place setting can include a soup spoon and a dinner spoon. Soup spoons and dinner spoons change in their bowl forms and bases.
Tablespoons have round bowls that are usually deeper than the bowls of other spoons. The whole spoon measures between five and seven inches long. Broth spoons, the smallest variety of soup spoons, are used to drink the clear, thin broth. Tablespoons of cream are slightly larger and accompany cream-based soups, such as lobster soup. Gumbo spoons are the largest kind of soup spoon and are deep enough to keep the meats and vegetables that are served in thick soups. Shorter oriental soup spoons have a deep bowl and flat bottoms.
Place utensils from the outside based on the order in which they are needed. If the soup is the first course of the meal, for example, place the soup spoon to the right of the knife, on the right side of the place setting. Place the dinner spoon to the left of the soup spoon, as it is used after the soup spoon. Some hosts prefer to carry out the proper spoon with the accompanying course, so they can serve their guest’s soup plates with soup spoons resting on the plate under the cup or carry out the dinner spoons when Coffee or ice cream is served.
