The season of soup, bread and pie
It's no secret we love soup and bread around here—the pairing of the fluid and staple foods, as well as the homegrown social culinary movement, Soup & Bread. This past Wednesday we communed for the end of the season—the Last Soup as it's come to be known—with the holy trinity, which now includes a traditional rite of pies.
I have to admit that while I was en route, I texted my friend Mike Sula to ask if he could please save me a taste of his soup because I knew it would go fast, and in fact it did. Mike shows-and-tells the making-of his "burgoo of adorable woodland creatures" here

But more than we love soup, bread, and even pie, we adore Martha. What she's created is far more than a modestly self-described "free weekly soup dinner
." What she's created is priceless.
