Galleries soulful soup

Lions Head wins the bowl for a third year

Castlegar News Staff

It was standing room only as the Kootenay Gallery of Art hosted the return of one of its most successful fundraisers, Soup for the Cultured Soul, on Saturday.

After choosing a hand-crafted pottery bowl, participants lined up to sample their favourite local soups: roasted tomato with bacon and parmesan chips (Maggie’s Mug), a spiced carrot gala apple (Element Club Bar and Grill), cabbage roll broth (Black Rooster), ostrich goulash (Thirsty Duck) and clam chowder (Cartwright’s).

The sixth soup ­­— coconut curried squash from the Lions Head — won the contest with its spicy, sweet flavour.

The event was as much social as culinary, with plenty of chit chat over steaming bowls and glasses of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. from Kindle (bc winery)
