Home Cooks Competition:  Soup


  • One for soups which use strict vegan or vegetarian ingredients
  • One for soups with a meat or fish-based stock

You may submit entries for either or both categories, but please label your entry with your name, mobile/home phone number, and provide a list of ingredients. Do feel free to add a few sentences about your soup, its origin, or how it had been made if you wish.

What the judges will be looking for…..

Flavour is absolutely our number one criteria. Wherever your soup sits on the scale of simple through to intriguingly complex, it should be full of flavour and perfectly seasoned from the first mouthful.

Whether you offer us a smooth or chunky variety we are looking for a good aroma, overall appearance, consistency and texture.

Now over to you!

Entry is simple.  Bring your product to the Community Café, Market Square between 1 pm and 2.30 pm on Friday October 18th. It should be in a small container with a cupful of your COLD soup (and a garnish if you wish). We will heat it in the café and present to the judges for tasting.

The winners will be announced by 4 pm, and you are free to collect your entry at any time between 4 and 4.30 pm.

Sally will put together a delicious ‘foodie’ hamper for the winner of each category, and we will provide a bottle of fizz for the runners up. The winning recipes will be cooked in the Deli - accredited to the winners of course!
