Perard French Fish Soup: Although Perard fish soup stemmed from humble beginnings, this popular dish has transformed into something much more than expected. Its creator, Serge Perard, first started making the soup during World War II from the leftover scraps in the market of the fishmongers hall of Boulogne sur Mer (the leading fishing port of France). He continued to fine-tune the recipe throughout the years, adding ingredients like saffron that were unattainable during the war. Today the soup contains at least five varieties of fish from the North Atlantic waters off Boulogne and has a minimum of 40 percent fish.  Ingredients: Water, fish 36%, tomato, corn starch, salt, natural flavorings, various aromatic plants, saffron (29 fl oz) $18.18
