We’re just popping online for a minute to send you a quick reminder that Soup & Bread at the Hideout starts in just one wintry week. Can you believe it?On Wednesday, January 2, WBEZ’s Louisa Chu and cooks from Swim Cafe, Milk & Honey, La Sirena Clandestina, and elsewhere join us to serve up soup variations on the theme of “green.” Whether they’ll take that directive literally, and turn out a table full of split peas, or stun us with their culinary creativity is anyone’s guess — but I’m hoping for pots of environmentally sound soup, raw talent soup, and maybe some soup of new beginnings. Personally, I’m spending the holiday lull perfecting a recipe for “money soup.”
If you haven’t checked the 2013 soup schedule to see who’s up next, you can take a gander at it right here. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done and, as you’ll see, we still have room for more cooks. See a date that gets your stock pot simmering? Let us know at soupnbread10 [at] gmail [dot] com and we’ll get you on the schedule. We’re aiming for 6-8 cooks each week.
If the introduction of weekly soup themes weren’t enough, we’re also excited to announce that the good people at Publican Quality Meats will be supplying us with fresh-baked bread for the duration of the 2013 soup season, and–in an S&B first–we’ll have weekly gluten-free loaves courtesy of the lovely Rae Lynn Hill.
The January 2 kickoff features mood music from DJ Damon Locks; all pay-what-you-can donations benefit Casa Catalina, in Back of the Yards. (If you came to our book release party last year, you may remember that night’s rousing speech by Sr. Joellen Tumas, who runs the agency’s food pantry.) Soup is served from 5:30 to 8 pm, or until we run out, at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia. Kids are welcome, if supervised by a vaguely responsible adult.
Best wishes for peace, health, and happiness in the new year – we hope to see you often!
