Do you remember the story of the man with the soup stone? He arrive at a village but no one would spare him some food. So he put a stone in a pot in the village square. The villagers were intrigued and eager to try the soup. The man kept tasting it and suggesting ingredients to make it taste better and sure enough, the villagers offered up the ingredients. Everyone got a bowl of soup and it was delicious. It is this spirit of collaborative cooking that we’re trying to create with the Stone Soup Co-Op.
