The article reports that film director Wolfgang Petersen has made a practice of having an eleven o'clock morning soup break on all his movie sets. Chefs choose the soup recipe and cook it, then Petersen rates the soup on a one-to-ten scale every day. Petersen says that the soup is good for morale. He chose the time because he had observed that things slow down around eleven in the morning.
