Soupstock



This A.M. Imagine, just 100 km northwest of Toronto a blast in the earth that creates a pit deeper than the Niagara Falls, destroying over 2,300 acres of the best farmland in Ontario. This blast would be the proposed limestone Mega-Quarry in Melancthon Township. Not only will the quarry destroy wildlife, farmland, it would also require 600-million litres of water to be pumped out of the pit daily.  
Yes, DAILY.  And, this unused water is supplied to almost one million Ontarians downstream. 

Joining Soupstock this past weekend was a no brainer for me.  With more than 28,000 attendees last year, again this year, Canadian chefs, musicians, artists, volunteers and people filled Woodbine Park for the movement hosted by the Canadian Chef's Congress and the David Suzuki Foundation. 

Tickets were sold for $10/3 soups, and thousands of people lined up with bowls and spoons with over 85 soups to choose from. Below, I share the 3 soups I selected, it wasn't easy!  

It's not too late to make a change. If you didn't get a chance to attend Soupstock, you can still write a letter to your member of parliament (see below for more information to stop the Mega-Quarry)


Soup #1~ Fenugreek spiced parsnip and apple soup, sesame crumb, ginger, oil, coriander by Chef Roger Murchie
