Soup Flight: Easy Prep and Perfect Pairing Tips

Discover how to easily prepare a delightful soup flight with these simple soup mixes and perfect pairing tips to elevate your next party or get-together.


Step by Step Guide to Creating a Soup Flight

Step 1: Choose your soups.

  • Set a theme. For this flight, we chose a Taco Tuesday Theme. Other theme possibilities: seasonal, regional recipes, or a variety of textures (chunky, creamy, broth, etc.)
  • Pick your soups: Choose a diverse selection of soups that complement each other. Aim for a balance of flavors, colors, and textures. Find soups available at The KStore in our Food & Beverage Collection.

Step 2: Gather Ingredients & Equipment

  • Fresh Ingredients: You'll need all the ingredients for each soup mix (if adding meats, for example) and fresh herbs, crackers, & more for toppings and garnishes.
  • Cooking Equipment: Ensure you have the necessary pots, pans, and utensils for preparing multiple soups simultaneously.

Step 3: Prepare the Soups

  • Plan Ahead: If this is a group effort, assign a different soup to every attendee. Or, if you're making all the soups, figure out which soups can be made ahead and reheated to save time and reduce stress.
  • Cook Efficiently: If you're preparing all soups on the same day, use your kitchen space efficiently. Start with soups that take the longest to cook.

Step 4: Serve in Small Portions

  • Portion Control: Serve the soups in small bowls or cups to allow your guests to sample each variety without getting too full. Check out our collection of small bowls, dipping saucers, & more!
  • Garnish Creatively: Use garnishes like fresh herbs, croutons, or a drizzle of cream to enhance the presentation and flavor.

Step 5: Pair with Complementary Sides

  • Bread and Crackers: Offer a selection of bread, rolls, and crackers to complement the soups.
  • Accompaniments:  Add small sides like cheese, olives, or charcuterie to enhance the tasting experience.


Step 6: Set the Scene

  • Presentation: Arrange the soup flight on a tray or board for an appealing presentation. Explore charcuterie boards and supplies in our Gather & Graze Collection.
  • Labeling: Label each soup with a small card to let your guests know what they are tasting.

Bonus Tips:

  • Pair with Beverages: Suggest suitable wine or beer pairings for each soup to enhance the tasting experience.
