What we're about

Public Group

What's food without its natural habitat of stories, people and places?

If you choose the love for food over #foodporn, if you believe that cooking and eating are mainly about discovery, joy and relationship (with nature, people, knowledge and places), this Meetup group is for you.

As Soup As Possible ( a project created by Angelica Vigilante ( to collects stories, (food-)travel notes and recipes under the sign of soup, where "soup" is another name for for comfort, warmth, nutritiousness and universality.
Soup seems to transcend cultures and cuisines: it belongs to the memory of anyone who ever owned a concept of home, and it speaks of cosiness, nurturing and sharing.
That's the spirit of this Meetup too.
Our meetings will always involve good food, but ultimately be about what food touches and implies: personal memories, family recipes, culinary traditions and explorations, nutrition, biodiversity, and the knowledge of food makers, professional cooks and passionate amateurs.

This group is a spin-off of (, "a (possibly) warm, cosy and nutritious blog" with a YouTube channel (
