Is this cooking?

My husband and I were recently guests at a buffet dinner. There was a Manhattan-style crab chowder that both of us very much enjoyed. In fact, I asked the host's mother, who had brought the soup, if she would share the recipe. "Oh, yes! It's really easy! Mix together 4 cans of Campbell's Select Vegetable Soup, a large can of chopped tomatoes, a pound of crabmeat, and a tablespoon each of Worcestershire Sauce and Old Bay Seasoning. That's all there is to it."

On the way home, my husband said he'd never serve something like that to guests - that it wasn't cooking, it was just opening a bunch of cans. I'm not sure I agree, but wonder what you think: is this cooking or not?
