An estimated 40,000 soup-seeking revellers and 200 chefs traveled to Woodbine Park last weekend to attend Soupstock 2012, the one-day culinary protest festival designed to raise awareness for the fight against the proposed mega-quarry in the Township of Melancthon. Building on the momentum generated from last year’s Foodstock, the Canadian Chef’s Congress and the David Suzuki Foundation convened the weekend’s festivities. Regardless of political affiliation, the sheer magnitude of the event was impressive: it’s a rare occasion that offers that many big-name city chefs (and, for that matter, that much soup).

Over 11,700 pounds of product were donated to create tens of thousands of litres of delicious bowls of warming goodness. Our favourites included a delightful take from Pizzeria Libretto that replicated the taste of a pepperoni pizza pie and an innovative dehydrated offering from Ursa that involved six days of skillful preparation. There were also quirky concoctions from Nick Liu of soon-to-open GwaiLo and Keriwa’s Aaron Joseph Bear Robe, and, of course, a whole range of more traditional fare to appease the purists.
