If you were clomping up tiny Camac Street Saturday night, you may have wondered who were those well-mustachioed men, smoking cigars outside the Franklin Inn Club. They'd just been celebrating the sesquicentennial of the founding of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia - to many, a forgotten little episode that involved the Mapuche Indians of Chile and Argentina and an intrepid French lawyer who became their ruler until he was declared insane. Chilean whites and Argentine reds were promised in addition to toasts and commemorative speeches, and so I accepted the invitation of the Rev. Daniel Morrison, who in 1995 cofounded the North American Araucanian Royalist Society.

SO NOW the terrorists win if a Canadian Muslim can buy a can of tomato soup. Conservative bloggers are calling for a boycott of Camden-based Campbell Soup Co. because it now produces (in Canada, not here) 15 varieties of soup that have been certified halal - that is, conforming with Muslim dietary laws. It's yet another alarming development in the so- far-successful political strategy of exploiting ignorance and fear of Islam. It joins last summer's roiling controversy over a proposed Islamic cultural center a few New York blocks from Ground Zero and the crazy Florida minister's threat to publicly burn a Quran.

On this hot summer morning in suburban Collegeville, the Fraser children bounce out of bed and race downstairs. They're not running for the TV - they don't have one. Instead, 10-year-old twins Eliza and Carolina and their brother, Perry, 6, head for the barn, where the hens are cooing and a baby rooster practices his wake-up call. They're already old hands at egg-hunting. "I found one!" Perry shrieks. In no time at all, he and his sisters collect five of these sublimely fresh eggs, soon to be scrambled into a delicious pile for breakfast.

As an associate dean at the Culinary Institute of America, Tom Griffiths ate well: pad thai, trout almondine, oxtail. Since he became head chef at Campbell Soup Co. in February, his tastes are changing. "I'm craving egg salad sandwiches or tapioca or soup," he said. Griffiths, one of 61 master chefs certified by the American Culinary Federation, is leading Campbell's new Culinary and Baking Institute. The institute is aimed at elevating "the culinary heritage" of a company that made its name with condensed soup, said Julie Simonson, vice president of research and development.

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)

TOMATO SOUP and a grilled cheese sandwich make a popular meal, but its calorie count and fat content could surprise you. OliveGarden.com's recipe for cream of tomato and basil soup contains 482 calories and 34 fat grams per cup, but I slim it down by using a mixture of tomato puree, mashed potato and half-and-half in place of two cups of heavy cream. I also substitute chicken broth for white wine. My alterations to this soup cut the calories by 74 percent and slash the fat by 80 percent.

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.

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.

It was a perfect New Jersey day - sunny, warm weather, complemented by 5,000 pounds of local tomatoes specially grown for chucking at perfect strangers. File this one under "Only in Jersey": The 2004 New Jersey Tomato Festival yesterday was brimming with the sorts of things that make the Garden State so strange and wonderful. Food. People in large tomato costumes, ostensibly to honor one of New Jersey's most famous crops. Bands. Crafts. And, to top it all off, a tomato war in honor of La Tomatina, an annual event in the Spanish village of Bu?ol.
