I'm originally from Massachusetts. The Venus DeMilo, in Swansea, Massachusetts, is a very popular place for weddings and banquets. Story has it that early one morning when the head chef was preparing for a wedding meal, he discovered that he'd forgotten to purchase ingredients for the soup. He threw this together, and it was a big hit! Hence the name. Please don't let the canned ingredients turn you away. Its VERY good!
