Soup
SOUP is a primarily liquid food , generally served warm or hot (but may be cool or cold), that is made by combining ingredients such as meat and vegetables with stock , juice , water, or another liquid . Hot soups are additionally characterized by boiling solid ingredients in liquids in a pot until the flavors are extracted, forming a broth . Traditionally, soups are classified into two main groups: _clear soups_ and _thick soups_. The established French classifications of clear soups are _bouillon _ and _consommé _. Thick soups are classified depending upon the type of thickening agent used: _purées _ are vegetable soups thickened with starch; _bisques _ are made from puréed shellfish or vegetables thickened with _cream _; cream soups may be thickened with béchamel sauce ; and _veloutés _ are thickened with eggs , butter , and cream

Custard
CUSTARD is a variety of culinary preparations based on a cooked mixture of milk or cream and egg yolk . Depending on how much egg or thickener is used, custard may vary in consistency from a thin pouring sauce (_crème anglaise _) to a thick pastry cream (French: _crème pâtissière_) used to fill éclairs . Most common custards are used as desserts or dessert sauces and typically include sugar and vanilla . Sometimes flour , corn starch , or gelatin is added as in pastry cream or _crème pâtissière_. Custard is usually cooked in a double boiler (bain-marie ), or heated very gently in a saucepan on a stove, though custard can also be steamed, baked in the oven with or without a water bath , or even cooked in a pressure cooker . Custard preparation is a delicate operation, because a temperature increase of 3–6 °C (5–10 °F) leads to overcooking and curdling
