Smith Street Soup Fest 2012 was held this Saturday afternoon and judging by the many people walking around with small cups and spoons in their hands, it was another great success.
Some of Smith Street's favorite eateries participated by providing a 4 oz. sample of their special soup for the day.
The event was organized by Bette Stoltz of South Brooklyn Local Development Corporations (SBLDC) and was a fundraiser for The School For International Studies, a public school here in the neighborhood which has a wonderful culinary arts program.
Some of Smith Street's favorite eateries participated by providing a 4 oz. sample of their special soup for the day. A panel of judges, which included Marilyn Gelber â" President of The Brooklyn Community Foundation/Local âFoodieâ; Molly Simms â" Senior Editor, Bust Magazine/Local âFoodieâ; Jady Cupid-student at The School Of International Studies and Bette Stoltz, rated the 27 different soups.
According to Bette Stoltz, 4 gold ladles, 2 silvers, and 3 bronzes were awarded.
The Gold Ladle winners are: *The Jakewalk for their Kabocha Squash Soup with Maple Creme Fraiche, *Angry Wades for their Frito Pie Chili, * Shelsky's Smoked Fish for their Celeraic & Apple Soup with Kippered Salmon, and *Seersucker for their Heirloom Tomato Soup with Cheddar Crisps.
The Silver Ladles went to: *Ciro's for their Squash Soup, and *Zaytoons for their Red Lentil Soup. The
Bronze Ladles went to *Kittery for their Seafood Chowder, *Jolie Cantina for their Poblano Oxtail Pozole, and *Provence en Boite for their Soupe de Poissons.
"It was a great day on Smith Street and a great day for the Culinary Program," Bette writes. I couldn't agree more.
