Survey: Do You Own a Soup Tureen?

A soup tureen seems a little too fussy and old-fashioned to me, an item left over from the days when dinner parties were more formal and a soup course de rigueur. That said, soup is a great thing to serve to a crowd and sometime serving it in the pot it was cooked in seems a little too informal. I solve this by using my Le Creuset dutch oven to cook and serve my soup. Its bright red exterior adds a little razzmatazz and cheer to all but the most formal occasions. What about you? How do you serve soup?
