On Sunday afternoon, Woodbine Park in Toronto was host to Soupstock - a one-day culinary celebration which featured over 200 soups from some of Canada’s top chefs.
Presented by the Canadian Chefs’ Congress and the David Suzuki Foundation, the intent of Soupstock was to raise awareness about the fight to stop the Highland Companies’ proposed limestone Mega-Quarry in the Township of Melancthon 100 kilometres northwest of Toronto. Over 40,000 visitors sampled original soup creations made from over 10,000 lbs of donated ingredients.
Visitors got to sample small portions of a variety of creative soups, chowders and stews with flavour combinations that were truly inspiring. What better way to spend a sunny autumn Sunday than sampling soups for a cause? For more info visit http://www.soupstock.ca/

Hi, my name is Galen and I'm currently interning with the Food Network and Shaw Media! Though I wouldn't call myself a foodie, I certainly enjoy eating the stuff - so this is an opportunity to learn more about cooking, baking, and food. Any questions, please let me know! And for goodness' sake, put the kettle on!
