First Annual Souperama: The Participants

 The Souperama held at Jimmy's No. 43 in NYC

As I have been mentioning, myself and 15 other soupy lovers recently participated in the First Annual Souperama held at Jimmy's No. 43 in NYC. A great concept that brought chefs and amateur cooks together to showcase their specialties, family recipes, and inventive twists on their favorite soups. It was exciting to test so many different soups, including combinations I would have never thought to try, like say Dagobah Soup (an ode to Star Wars) or a deconstructed fish taco soup.The soups were judged by Cathy Erway, blogger of Not Eating Out in New York; Gabrielle Langholz, editor of Edible Brooklyn and Edible Manhattan; Jake Schiffman of the Food Network; and Sherri Brooks Vinton food writer, as well as votes by those who attended the event for their favorite. Check out the list of the participants and their soups, as well as the winning entries. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow for the winning recipes and even more photos of this fun event!
