Not only is it drawing bigger crowds every year, but the list of participating eateries is getting longer.
So come early. Below, please find all the pertaining information.
SOUP FESTIVAL 2014/FESTIVALE DES SOUPES 2014
A 14 Block Soup Crawl On Smith Street
Saturday October 18th, 2014
Tastings are served in 4oz tasting cups, with plastic soup spoons and napkins. Restaurants must be sure to save enough soup for our panel of Celebrity Judges who will taste them all, and rate them on Appearance, Texture, and Taste to award Gold, Silver, and Bronze Ladles to the winners. The judges are the only ones allowed to “cut” the lines – and there will be lines. This year’s Celebrity Judges this year will include Mr. Brooklyn Foodie himself – Marty Markowitz, Peter DeNat of YELP, and others TBA.
It is all for a good cause as well because SBLDC shares the proceeds of the day (and the work) with the Culinary Arts Program at the High School For International Studies on Baltic Street between Smith & Court. Keeping a Public High School Culinary Program running properly all year long takes a bigger food budget than the Department of Education provides so this event is a very important Fund Raiser for them. Students man the ticket selling tables, 3 of them at the corners of Smith & President, Butler, and Bergen Streets, as well as serve up their own soups.
Prices are 5 Tastings for $7.00, 12 Tastings for $15.00, or 25 Tastings for $25.00 – affordable for everyone!! This is a real community building event and we hope you will be a part of it.
No reservation needed, but arrive early so that you can sample as many soups as possible. You don't want to miss this event.
