Robin Leach, of television's"Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," was there. So were actress/singer Della Reese and Marion Ross, best known as the perfect mom on TV's old "Happy Days" show. They had gathered yesterday in Minneapolis to pay homage to one of the nation's most enduring food staples - Campbell's tomato soup. The 20 billionth can is rolling off the production line this year. And Campbell Soup Co. executives decided to herald the event with the requisite fanfare.

Recently I was in a hair salon under the dryer when a friend spotted me and came over to discuss the menu for a future dinner party. Fresh tomato soup with grilled scallops, a dish I had served at a casual supper a few days before, came to mind. I also recommended a pesto tart and a salad of mixed greens in a white wine dressing. She liked these ideas and thought they would work well with a favorite dessert, chocolate brownies mounded with coffee ice cream and drizzled with warm fudge sauce.

Yo, Chefs! First, thank you for printing the Art Museum's recipe for garlic mashed potatoes (Jan. 15). They're great. I never follow a recipe, but this time I did and amazed my wife with the results. Second, my real quest: As a Navy ship's cook back in 1945, I was one member of a "watch crew" that fed 5,000 sailors in eight lines. We were specialized, so I don't know how the recipes came together. But I do know that when cream of tomato soup was on the menu, the usual soup quantity had to be more than doubled because so many people came back for seconds and thirds.

How do they know? Just recently, Campbell Soup Co. had a big celebration in honor of the "20 billionth" can of tomato soup shipped off to market. Last year, Disney World in Florida honored its "300 millionth visitor. " And those McDonald's Golden Arches, which still adhere to the company's tradition of reporting on hamburger sales, now proclaim "over 70 billion served. " Are we expected to believe these companies can actually pinpoint the day, the hour, the very minute when numerical history is made?

'So why aren't we making real grilled cheese?" said chef Marc Vetri, who was visiting our after-school cooking class. "Well, we're going for something healthier," I said. Baked whole-wheat pitas stuffed with cheese and homemade tomato soup - a reinvention of the classic pairing. "You think these are healthy?" he said, grabbing the pitas and reading off the offensive ingredients: preservatives, enzymes, gluten. "So, what kind of bread should I buy in a grocery store?

Campbell Soup has launched a line of condensed soups that contain one-third less salt than its regular soups. The sodium content of the new soups, which are called "Special Request," will fall between the levels of salt in Campbell's regular soups and in its low-sodium soups for people on salt-restricted diets. Over the years, Campbell's has been the target of protests by consumer groups who say its soups are too high in sodium. A company spokesman, David C. Hackney, said the new soups, which have been under development for 10 years, should answer those concerns.

Nibs are the grindings of roasted cacao beans before they're crushed and, through magical processes, transformed into chocolate. Occasionally you'll encounter candy that incorporates them, but it's invariably bitter and astringent. Not so with this Theo nib brittle from organic and fair-traded beans. Tamed in buttery brittle, wrapped in winey, rich dark chocolate, they become snap-crackling accents - chocolate's soul whispering from the deep. - Rick Nichols Tomato soup redux I'll admit, I still occasionally regress to a nostalgic childhood meal of Campbell's tomato soup and grilled cheese.

Campbell Soup is tapping Andy Warhol for another 15 minutes of fame. The Camden soup maker plans to introduce special-edition cans of its condensed tomato soup bearing labels reminiscent of the pop artist's paintings at Target stores starting Sunday. The 1.2 million cans will cost 75 cents each. The Campbell Soup Co.'s embrace of Warhol's iconic imagery is a switch from its initial reaction, when the company considered taking legal action but held off to see how the paintings were received by the public.

Tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich is one of comfort food's all-star collaborations. But which of the two do you especially covet? The South Philly Tap Room cleverly caters to both preferences, with a full-sized sandwich and a cup of soup for traditionalists, or a bowl of soup topped with a short stack of crouton-like mini grilled cheeses. Either way brings chef Scott Schroeder's soulful soup, deliberately Campbell's-esque in style, but deepened in flavor (true to beer bar form)

I LOVE a luscious bowl of soup during the fall and winter months. Maybe you do, too. But beware of soups in restaurants and on grocery shelves, because most commercially prepared soups have huge amounts of sodium. Some pack a wallop of fat as well. As much as I know about nutrition, I fell for this trap on the first sort of chilly day this month. I hadn't brought my lunch to work like I normally do and, since it was rainy and cold, I decided to hit a nearby Cosi restaurant. I thought that would be a smart choice - a place where I could get a nice, nutritious bowl of soup accompanied by their delicious hot bread.

The most important meal of the day may be the perfect starting point for the beginning of a day trip, a one-week vacation, or the entire summer at the Jersey Shore. There are many who make it a ritual to grab their favorite breakfast grub before hitting the strand or checking in at the rental. And while dining out for breakfast certainly isn't unique to the Shore, the quest to return to a beloved spot for it summer after summer may be, according to Debbie Howarth, an associate professor of sales and marketing at Johnson and Wales University's School of Hospitality in Providence, R.I. Howarth, who grew up going "down the Shore," calls New Jersey "one of the greatest melting pots in the United States . . . where every culture has their ties to food and family.

REALLY, PHILLY, this is how you're gonna do me? Me, who's been your one-woman cheering squad for months now? Who's been full-steam ahead with the whole "No Philly Shrug" campaign - despite the sometimes universal, it seems, eye-roll from haters? Me, who's been so rah-rah about Philly that old friends who know that optimism and boosterism and, oh-who-am-I-kidding, even smiling doesn't exactly come natural for me have wondered if I was having some sort of breakdown. No! I'd proclaim.

A March 2012 menu feature at Camden's LEAP Academy University Charter School was grilled cheese, tomato soup, peas, and fresh fruit. This month, the menu features grilled cheese, tomato soup, and strawberry applesauce. A more striking change than in the menu is what executive chef Michele Pastorello is getting for his work now - a $24,000 raise from last year. He will make $95,000 this school year - significantly more than comparable food-service directors' salaries in other New Jersey public school districts.

You say gazpacho, I say salmorejo . . . On the hunt for gazpacho, we spotted something called salmorejo on the lunch menu at Garces Trading Company. Listed as "chilled tomato soup, with egg yolk and Serrano ham," it sounded a lot like the original item. Turns out, it's a richer, smoother version with a velvety texture, and a soft-pink blush. Chef Gregg Ciprioni takes care to add the sherry vinegar just before serving, to avoid gazpacho's worst flaw - an overly-tangy pucker brought on by dousing it with vinegar too early, before the flavors marry.

Campbell Soup Co. began its analyst day in Camden on Tuesday with a weather report. Investor relations vice president Jennifer Driscoll noted that the temperature was expected to reach 93 degrees. "Good soup-eating weather," she said. Even though air-conditioning does have some of us wearing sweaters, I'm pretty sure she was kidding. But when soup is the core of your business, as it is for Campbell's, a thermometer reading may be the least of your concerns. After all, eating trends in America have been tilting against the iconic Philadelphia-area processed-food company.

It's about time: Aubrey Plaza gets her own movie! Master of the deadpan aside, cast often as hipster nerd, wisecracking worrywart, or lovelorn friend, Plaza - who began in improv and sketch comedy and can now be seen weekly on TV's Parks and Recreation - has been the supporting player who made the movie worth seeing, the scene worth stealing. In Safety Not Guaranteed, she's the star. This shaggy love story sends Plaza off on a voyage of discovery - she's Darius, a Seattleite who can't get a job (her interview with a restaurant manager is rife with hilarious defeatism)

You've tried to be faithful. In January, you wrote a check to the farm that runs your CSA, dreaming of ripe tomatoes come July. You've exhausted the supply of corn and green beans blanched and frozen last summer. You've even tried to embrace the curly kale and cabbage at the few year-round farmer's markets. But only so much can be expected of even the most devoted locavore, especially this time of year. By March, those hard tomatoes, watery strawberries, and pesticide-coated grapes start looking pretty good.
