The Calistoga Art Center's 9th Annual Soup-er Bowl evening, Saturday, February 3rd, had a record number of soups (16) and three new restaurant donors: Lovina (forrmerly Calistoga Kitchen), Veraison, and Local Q.
By vote from the 200 guests, the winner was Lovina (Greek avgolemono); second place, All Seasons (cream of potato); third place, Cal Mart (salmon chowder). Every soup is a winner, but special congratulations to the three listed here. The winner gets bragging rights until next year's Soup-er Bowl.
Thanks to all the restaurants and those who planned and prepared the soups. Thanks to the many hard-working volunteers, from soup scoopers to cookie makers to kitchen workers to table-decorators, and more. The evening would not have its flair without the extraordinary, unique, and varied bowls, each handmade by students and friends of the Calistoga ceramics team. Last (not least), a toast to our amazing guests and supporters. See you next year!
