Cracher dans la soupe

Le mot du jour : “Cracher dans la soupe”
Another familiar expression about soup is “cracher dans la soupe” (to spit in the soup)

So what kind of person spits in the soup? Well, it is someone who is ungrateful, a person who criticises someone or something they depend on. That expression comes from a time when soup was often the main meal of the day.

It is very similar in meaning to the English expression “to bite the hand that feeds you”, but I find the English one more elegant!🙂
