In the culinary world everyone makes mistakes. Some we will never forget and others we choose to never be reminded of. Either way you learn from these mistakes.
When storing soup, one uses an ice stick to bring the soup down to a safe storing temperature. In the LA Kitchen we say, "Put ice in it". One of my first days working at L A Sweet P asked me to cool down his corn chowder and “put ice in it”. So I proceeded to scoop ice into his soup one cube at a time. Luckily, he caught me in the act and got me to stop immediately, and thankfully I could scoop out the two scoops of ice. He then told me he was referring to an ice stick we keep in our freezer. Needless to say I learned very fast where we keep our ice sticks and how we cool things down properly. I also learned what the term “put ice in it” really means!
