NORWICH – Chenango County Habitat for Humanity’s first soup tasting event, CCHH Souper Bowl was a terrific success! People came in droves to support this very deserving non-profit organization. They sipped soup, ate bread, had coffee from Java Joe’s an More and dessert, took notes and voted. No, they weren’t voting for a governmental election, but for their favorite soup from the participating restaurants (mostly) from Chenango County. With three tickets, they determined first, second and third places.
It was a great opportunity for food purveyors to give a taste of what they have to offer, in their special style of cuisine! They were encouraged to distribute coupons, business cards, catering information or even menus for their establishments. Several provided bread, rolls, crackers or croutons to go with their soups.
Participating restaurants were Bob’s Diner, Bainbridge; Caboose Restaurant, Norwich; Canasawacta Country Club, Norwich; Carmen’s Café, Norwich; Deer Path Restaurant, Edmeston; Dusty’s Dairy Barn & Grill, Norwich; Gus’ Steak House, Norwich; Hoppie’s, Oxford; Karolyn’s Krossroads Café, Norwich; Lewis’ Restaurant, Sherburne; Lucky Kitchen, Norwich; Main Street Bakery & Grill, Afton; Mary’s On The Corner, Norwich; New Berlin Diner, New Berlin; New York Pizzeria, New Berlin; Nina’s Pizzeria, Norwich; S & S Café, Bainbridge; Suzi’s Café, Sidney; The Silo Restaurant, Coventry; and the Village Café, Greene. (Due to CCHH some mishaps, soups from Garf’s Deli, Norwich; and Serendipity Café, Norwich; were not available.)
