There is only three days away until the soup cook-off/fundraiser for the Bowery Mission, a non-profit soup kitchen in NYC and FoodieLink, a website that focuses on healthy food, good eating and long-term sustainability. I have teamed up with FoodieLink to sponsor this exciting event and I am pleased to announce that Andrea Beaman, Season One contestant of Top Chef has signed on to judge the 10 finalists and their soups. There will also be prizes for the first, second and third placed soups including a subscription to Edible Manhattan magazines, copies of Beaman's books, stock from Brooklyn Bouillon and a gift certificate from Orwasher’s Bakery - among many other prizes!
Entries are currently closed for the contest but for those that attend you can expect to sample of over 10 soups, bread from Orwasher’s Bakery, regional cheeses, and the chance to get to know good foodies including NYC food professionals. The event is held at Jimmy’s No. 43 and tickets for this fundraiser and all-you-can-eat soup party costs $30/per person. To purchase tickets, please visit Event Brite.
