A friendly competition between local eateries as well as a vehicle for local potters to display their wares was held Feb. 23 at the Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar.
Soup for the Cultured Soul, where ticket holders got their choice of a locally crafted pottery bowl filled at their pace with samples of six different soups, went off very well. The place was packed and taste treats were served up by Cuisine of India; Element Club Bar and Grill, the Thirsty Duck, The Lions Head Smoke and Brew Pub, Nealy O’Brien’s, and the Black Rooster.
The winner of the people’s choice award for their soup, was the Lions Head for their coconut curry masterpiece. Accepting the certificate were Troy and Carly.
