What happens when 200 people gather at the High Line public park in New York City to share a communal meal? Conversation, good food, and a chance to connect with neighbors in a city of 8 million. In October 2011, the High Line dinner on the elevated rail line offered up Bean and Farro Soup by Chef Mona Talbott for a mere $5 to neighbors and visitors, friends and newcomers. The event was sponsored by Friends of the High Line, Cleaver & Co., Edible Manhattan and Slow Food, among others. Host your own soup supper with any of these simple soups.
