A souped-up party

Whether you're ringing in the new year, watching the Super Bowl, or just beating the January chill, this soup buffet is a perfect way to gather with friends

Soup spells comfort ― in my dictionary, anyway ― and that's exactly what many people yearn for after the overindulgent holiday season.

A mug or bowl of steaming broth can soothe frayed nerves and recharge party conversation to get the new year off to a happy start.

Best of all, a selection of soups is a simple way to entertain casually. Our flavorful soups range from thin to thick, and all make enough to feed a crowd ― they can even be made in advance.

Make one soup for 8 to 12 guests, or serve all four for a big group.

Have partygoers ladle soup into mugs or small bowls, and offer condiments so they can tailor each soup to their liking.

Provide a selection of breads, butter or extra-virgin olive oil, an easy stand-up salad, vegetable crudités with a dip, and cookies, and the meal is complete. 

Wine pairings: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfanel, or Chianti. Find the right wine
