It's hard to explain just how much David and I LOVE the Holland Marsh Soup Fest! We've represented Bijoy's Restaurant at the event for the past 4 years and every year when Bijoy and Sujata (the owners of the restaurant) ask us if we'll do the event for them we feel SO LUCKY! We always tell them that we WOULDN'T MISS IT!! It's become one of our favourite Fall traditions! Here's a video from our car ride this AM!

If you've never been to a SOUP FEST, it's basically an event where restaurants from the area prepare a special soup and gather together under a HUGE tent to serve soup to hungry customers! The customers buy tickets and each ticket gets them a scoop of any soup they'd like! The BEST part of working at the event is that you get to walk around and try all of the incredible soups for FREE!
This year the impressive line up of soups included: pumpkin pie soup, turkey dinner soup, loaded baked potato soup, coconut carrot soup, and of course Bijoy's COLD beet and apple soup!
When Bijoy told us that this year we'd be serving a COLD soup...David and I were a little skeptical! We definitely doubted that anyone would want to eat a cold soup on a RAINY, COLD day! But BOY were we wrong! It was SUCH a hit! People said that since the other soups were ALL hot and heavy, our cold and light soup was a welcome palette cleanser! Way to go, Bijoy! :)
After a busy day of chatting/serving soup we were pooped and craving non-liquid food! So we headed to our favourite pizza place- Santa Fe Pizza- to recover/relax after our busy day!
