Dinner anyone?

Alright I’m attempting a simple dinner scene. This is what I’ve come up with so far. Now I just need to learn how to model steak and peas.
here is a quick lighting/material test

I’ve never seen a fork with a handle that bends that much, but I’m sure it’s a possibility. Looks good so far.

I put a band-aid in the soup. I am having difficulty making the shadow in the soup not so dark.
Does anybody know a good material for soup, like reflect value, raymir, or spec. Also when I render it in yafray I get this result
any suggestions
Here are the settings of the soup
