We had a banner week this week — so many fantastic soups; so many hungry people. And so many babies. Where did all those babies come from? (Wait, don’t answer that.)
Recipes are trickling in for David Kodeski’s dreamy congee, Kitty Tataryn’s roasted red pepper, and other soups of the day. Will have those posted soon. I should also give a quick shout out to both La Farine, which piled my Jeep so full of bread it smelled like a bakery at 5 am, and to Anne from Crumb, who brought a half-dozen whole wheat boules and some amazing spicy cheddar bread. We also raised a cool $575 for the good folks at Benton House, in Bridgeport. It was great to see how they rallied their people to come out and show their support. Come back soon, y’all.
NOW, on to next week. It’s a doozy.
Stepping up to the trusty crocks we have:
Jason and Danielle Bitner, founders of The Betterment Society and proud parents of adorable Hollis, pictured above
The lovely and talented Helen Tsastos (Rock Candy by Helen), who promises her yiaya’s avoglemono
Our friends at Smoque BBQ, with chili
Bitchin’ babysitter Jenny Hines, teaming up with HER MOM, Nancy, for something vegetarian.
All that, plus more soup from our friends at Hull-House, bread from La Farine, and the musical stylings of DJ Rob Miller. All proceeds benefit the food pantry at Woodlawn’s historic First Presbyterian Church.
See you there!
