How to cook the tastiest and most aromatic soup you have ever had…
When trying to make the perfect soup, the most important thing apart from the right ingredients, timing, temperature, is the right type of pot. The material used in the construction of the pot will affect the temperature. For example, a stainless steel or metal pot has good conductivity, making the soup evaporate rapidly. Whereas a La gourmet ceramic toughened Claypot has good insulation properties, allowing you to stew the soup over a longer time period slowly on low heat. Stewing the soup slowly in a La gourmet toughened Claypot is the secret to improving both the aroma and the tastiness of the soup!
3 RULES for the La gourmet Perfect Soup
Rule 1: Use a quality toughened claypot. Truly Oriental Claypot by La gourmet is an excellent choice.
Rule 2: Use the Right ingredients for the soup you want to stew. Put all the ingredients you want into cold water in the pot before boiling.
Rule 3: Once the soup boils, reduce heat and stew the ingredients over low heat in the claypot. The nutrients and sweetness will be drawn from the ingredients. Whilst the insulating body of the claypot will reduce evaporation, keep the soup warm and improves the aroma of the soup.
To serve place the La gourmet Truly Oriental Steamboat Claypot with the soup onto the portable induction stove (make sure you have a silicon or suitable pot holder to hold the induction stove). This will keep your soup hot and aromatic. Scoop and serve onto bowls. Replace the cover, and the soup will retain its heat and aroma throughout the dinner.
