From sweet to sour to savoury, Castlegar chooses its best soups

Soup for the Soul annual fundraiser made supporting the arts a delicious affair

The community showed its support for the Kootenay Gallery of Art at the annual Soup for the Cultured Soul event last week.

The popular event featured six local restaurants serving soup in bowls handcrafted by local artisans while patrons voted for their favourite dish of the night.

The Lion’s Head took home the People’s Choice award with their spicy cauliflower ginger squash soup. The Nineteenth was People’s Choice runner up for their lobster and prawn bisque. Roots Modern Health Food won the Chef’s Choice award. Maggie’s Mug, Kim’s Catering Creations and the Grand Buddha Bistro also contributed soups for the event.
