Just as the weather is getting cooler and the leaves are changing color, there is a unique, fun and timely event in the works on Smith Street.  Organized by Restaurant Rows business owners and The South Brooklyn LDC, the Food Festival will allow people to sample and judge about 25 soups as they stroll along the sidewalks of Smith Street from Atlantic Avenue to Carroll Street.  The cost will be $5.00 per person or $10.00 per family unit.

According to the organizers "people get wristbands that entitle them to samples of 20 plus soups from the participating Smith Street restaurants. We will have a contest and award "Gold, Silver & Bronze" Soup Ladles in each category of clear/consomme, pureed/veloute, and peasant style soups. The "celebrity" judges will include a Food Writer for Time Out NY Magazine , and Ariane  Daguin - the owner of D'Artagnan Charcuterie Products and more to come. They, and the entire participating public will be tasting (4oz. servings) and rating from 22 to 25 soups as they walk along Smith Street to Carroll Street from 1:00 to 4PM.  The rain date  is Sunday 10/24/10 same times."

The event is a benefit for the HS For International Studies (Baltic Street) Culinary Arts Program and the South Brooklyn Local Development Corporation.


Sounds great, no?  Make sure you put the date on your calendar.
