Elsewhere Online: Soup Swap: have you tried it?

A soup swap? What a great idea! We are constantly looking for ways to get our friends together to visit, talk and eat and this could be a new addition to our repertoire. We recently started doing monthly Pasta Feeds, where we cook up a bunch of pasta, but a Soup Swap would be perfect for these cold (?) Winter days here in LA.

Since I am tech geek, people often ask me how I deal with the computer and other technology all day? Well,I find ways of combining the High-Tech with High-Touch events like this and our annual parties. Despite much denigration of late, I truly believe in striving for a balance in your life. Just like cooking, a little bit of this and a little bit of that can go a long way towards building a wonderful and happy life.

Soup Swap: Have You Tried It?

Have you tried the nationwide sensation that is the Soup Swap? In short, you get a bunch of friends together, everyone brings soup, drinks some wine, and goes home with more soup. We're sold!

We missed out on National Soup Swap Day on January 24, but the experts at SoupSwap.com say that's of little importance. They urge you to "swap when you can!" And as we're in the midst of Soup Month here at The Kitchn, what better time than now? Or, preferably, two weeks from now as to give your fellow swappers ample time to plan and cook, they advise. Knox Gardner is the mastermind behind Soup Swap and started the events back in the '90s in Seattle, eventually planning more swaps in Boston. Today, Soup Swap has taken on a life of its own, with swaps popping up across the country. We think it sounds like a great way to share your cooking, try new soups and best of all spend time with friends without a huge effort or expense. We also love the little extras some swappers have thrown in like buttons or customized wooden spoons. Homemade crackers or bread would be great too.
