the logistics of soup are interesting in a served feast as 
well.  do you roll it around in a pot on a cart, slosh it 
in a bowl, or glop/plot it from a pitcher? 8)

in a donation, serve yourself style lunch soup is great. 
 but at a feast it can be tedious and time (almost typed 
thyme) consuming.   the smaller the feast, the easier it 
is to use, but soup between courses for a large feast... 
 i'd prefer a salat for the palate cleanser.
