2017 Souper Bowl Returns January 21

On Saturday, January 21st, 2017, the beloved Souper Bowl will return for its 23rd helping at the Santa Fe Convention Center!

Between noon and 2:30 pm, ticket holders will sample soups and vote for their favorites from 29 local restaurants. For this one of a kind fundraising event, the creative genius of local chefs will be demonstrated in the signature soup each will prepare.

Chefs compete for best soup in four categories—Cream, Savory, Seafood, and Vegetarian—plus Best Soup of the competition.

At The Food Depot’’s annual Souper Bowl, local businesses sponsor the event and restaurants donate their staff time and talent—plus hundreds of gallons of soup. Ticket holders will be invited to sample the soups presented by competing chefs in each category and cast their ballot for their favorite soup.  Voting closes at 2:00 pm and winners are announced before the event ends.
