SOUP SWAP

One awesome activity we discovered this fall is swapping food. We have hosted a couple food swaps amongst a few of our peoples and it’s pretty awesome. Here you’ll see our first swap – The Soup Swap.

So the basics of this swap is to pre-determine a certain food item, cuisine or means of cooking, make six batches of it and share it with the swap group.

During the actual gathering, all the food is layed out and ready to be gripped up like good ‘ol government cheese. You describe the ingredients, cooking methods, and any other details about your particular dish. Following the mouth-watering descriptions, you and everyone else chooses 6 items to take home. WHAT? In a quick 45 minutes you just step your lunch game up.

If you are a true Big Bite-r, you also slip in a few shots of FourLoko in there too.  

Some of the swapables shared were: Butternut Squash Soup with Pear and Thyme, Provencal-style Stew, Red Chicken Soup, Potato Leek Soup, Split Pea with Ham, French Onion Soup, and a few other tasty-ass soups.

We even got a shout out (scroll down) from the Philadelphia City Paper’s own food blogger and Meal Ticket creator Drew Lazor who also participated in the swap.

We is famous.
