Tripe Soup is a salty white broth soup seen as a delicacy for all. Created by a female Ânian chef, Daciana of Dracali, this soup was meant for the lower classes of Dracali but it has since expanded out to a general audience. Daciana created it with the purpose of making a filling yet simple meal that many could learn, and soon it spread across her city and then region. Tripe Soup is made with the parts of a pig that many wouldn’t use in everyday cooking. Because of the popularity of the soup within the Ânia Culture, the soup will always be found on the dining tables of those of Ânia Culture during holidays or events.
Tripe Soup was formally created in 234 AC by Daciana of Dracali, a woman well known in her time due to caring for the poor. The recipe drew on centuries of prior, similar soups from the region, but was the first to be written out in Common and shared freely beyond its home region and in fact, household. Later in her life, Daciana was reported to have said that her creation of the Soup was to help chefs use parts of an animal that weren't commonly used by most other cuisine and, more importantly, to prevent food waste and starvation among the poor or lower classes. As time went on, the meal eventually became known abroad, though today it has largely remained a staple of Ânian Culture.
The first step to making Tripe Soup is to gather all the tools/ingredients and prepare them. For the ingredients, the pork legs should be separated from the pig while the leeks, carrots, and onions should be chopped into one-inch-thick slices. To begin the meal, place one pound of raw pork leg into a soup pot, seasoning it with salt, pepper, the garlic, and the lemon juice or cider vinegar. Then, after seasoning the meat, the pot should be filled up with either broth or water depending on the chef’s choice. It should be let to sit over heat until it comes to a boil before the chopped up bits of carrots, onions, and leeks should be added in. It should then be left over the heat for up to two hours, and stirred every thirty minutes with the addition of a tablespoon of vinegar. Once fully cooked, a large amount of heavy cream or milk should be added into the soup though at the discretion of the chef. It should be stirred in and then transferred into bowls hot before being served.
- The appearance of Tripe Soup is quite odd to those ignorant to the dish. The broth is commonly white, yellow, or orange. This depends on the type of seasonings and vegetables used during the process of making the soup.
- The smell of Tripe Soup also varies. It can smell salty, sweet, sour, or have no distinct smell at all.
- The taste of Tripe Soup has evolved over time, originally the soup was bland. Little seasonings, and hardly any vegetables. But, as the recipe was carried on, seasonings and ingredients were added. Today the taste of the soup can be described as salty, sour, and rich.
- There has been much debate on if Daciana deserves being labeled as the dish’s creator, as the designation was largely created by outsiders rather than the Ânian’s themselves.
