With the weather cooling down and fall just around the corner, I am craving hearty soups. With perfect timing, the 7th annual Soupalicious Toronto festival will be held on Sunday September the 28th from noon to 3pm. Over 30 Toronto chefs, restaurants and food groups will be gathering at the Artscape Wychwood Barn to showcase their best soup recipes.
The event is presented by the Plant a Grow, Grow a Row program that encourages communities to plant, grow and donate fresh vegetables back to their community. I love how the event promotes contributing to your community. Ingredient donations from local Ontario producers are provided to the soup makers and will be featured in all of their creations. The event is also zero waste and will only be using compost-able utensils and napkins.
Some of the mouth watering soups that I’m looking forward to slurping include:
- Mushroom Soup from Aria Ristorante
- Cheddar and Ale Soup with Pretzel Croutons from Cheesewerks
- Portuguese Caldo Verde from No. 7 Hot Sauce
- Mock Turtle Soup from Southern Accent
Advance tickets are now on sale at http://www.soupalicious.ca/ for $15, which includes entry and 10 free soup tastings. Additional tastings are $1.50 each at the door. Tickets will be $22 at the door, so buying ahead of time is a great deal. Family pass, student, senior and child discounted ticket prices are also available.
