The French word for soup gave us the root of the word ‘supper’ – ‘souper’.  French people often have soup as the last meal of the day, as they have generally dined well at dinner time. When I told someone that we often ate soup for lunch, they were visibly shocked. In our local frozen food shop, I can buy Brighton Soup. I wonder if the people of Brighton know that they are famous for their carrot potage in France.
