And the Winner is…

soup competition

Eric Kaplan of Rocky Neck and Chelmsford was the winner of the Sailor Stan’s For the Love of Soup Competition and $25 Sailor Stan’s gift certificate, with his scrumptous mushroom soup made with cashew paste, soy milk, curry and tons of mushrooms.  Additional entries included Lisa van Sand’s gazpacho (my personal favorite which came in 2nd), Rick’s Gumbo Ya Ya which came in 3rd, Ian Crown’s famous mushroom soup, Karen’s Kovis (kale and linguisa), Wayne’s French onion, Sailor Stan’s fish chowder and my spicy shrimp and corn chowder.  Participants got to enjoy a diverse selection of delicious soups, salad, fresh bread and assorted choice of beverages, and had a great time while being challenged to pick a favorite – all for the benefit of the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck.

On a separate culinary note, keep an eye out for Lisa van Sand’s amazingly decadent treats which will soon be carried at the Last Stop, including her Oh My God Cake.  A number of us tried a piece of it yesterday, not knowing in advance what it was called, and all had the exact same response: “Oh My God!”  It is to die for, as is her white chocolate and chai cake.
