This past Sunday, October 21st, there was a fantastic Event at Woodbine Park in Toronto called Soupstock. This event was to raise money to protect Ontario's farms, food, and water and stop the Mega-Quarry. This event was hosted by Hundreds of well-known Chefs across Ontario that volunteered their time for the cause.
Now.. the best part! The Soup! We ended up trying about 8 different kinds of soup (we shared..lol) and they were all fantastic!!
Thankfully it was a gorgeous, sunny day so this really helped the event. We met up with Jennifer Houston, Co-owner and Head Chef from Fresh. They were serving 2 different soups so it was a very hard decision to pick which one but the Autumn Stew won me over!! It was funny because the day before my sister and I had just made Jennifer's Thai Tangled Salad from her latest cookbook.. it was fun to make and tasted so good!!
We also saw Carol Belmonte, from Belmonte Raw who was serving a yummy Carrot Soup (see picture below) topped with fresh Kale and deelishness!! Yes, I love this made up word!!
I tried to take a picture of every soup but sometimes they were so yummy I forgot!! The Soups that I thought won for creativity was Belmonte Raw's Carrot topped with Kale Salad and One 99's French Onion Soup topped with fries and cheese, they totally took the poutine trend and ran with it!! Of course I would try to think of a healthier way to do it.. but that's what I do :)
Overall this was a wonderful Event with a great cause, and of course, Amazing Soups! Please let me know if you attended this event and if so what was your favourite soup? I would love to hear your comments and feedback!
