As all good cooks know, we taste with our eyes first. And what is more impressive than serving your creation in a beautiful tureen. From humble to haute, the form lends itself to endless variations.

One of my all time favorite books from childhood is Stone Soup by Marcia Brown.
Based on a fable that takes different forms throughout Europe, it is the tale of hungry strangers, who trick a reluctant village into sharing their meager stores to make a wonderful and bountiful soup for all. A great lesson of cooperation and sharing.
It's a great reminder of the power of soup to bring folks together.
"This is what we train for team"
With only a week before the big day, it is time to choose our soup and make a trial run. With so many delicious options out there, this is probably the hardest part of the competition.
