A reason to love January

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager

Soup on Sunday logo_50Raise your hand if you like January . . . . Ok, pretty sure there aren’t too many arms in the air.  But I get it.  January is a tough month to love.  The holidays, which were full of family, friends, and time off, have faded into memory.  We’ve still got about three months of cold weather to look forward to and spring break is almost that far away too.  So what is there to get excited about?

One word: soup.

That’s right, folks.  Soup on Sunday is BACK for its 15th year!  And just like every year before, it’s going to be amazing.  For three solid hours, you can taste some of the most delicious concoctions Charlotte chefs have to offer.  We’ll have vegetarian soups, soups with chicken and sausage, various chilis and bisques, and even a gluten-free recipe (yep, that’s right!) for those of you with sensitive bellies.

And there’s more than just soup.  There will be gorgeous, hand-made pottery to choose from, breads from Great Harvest Bread Company, Coca Cola products, and Bojangles sweet tea.  And there will be desserts.  I’m talking some serious chocolate, people!  The chefs from the participating culinary schools always come up with some breathtakingly beautiful, sweet creations to rival their scrumptious liquid creations.

Ok, so now let’s see a show of hands.  Yep, that’s what I thought.  When you walk out of the Phillip L. Van Every Culinary Arts Center, warmly and pleasantly full of delicious soup, you’ll realize something: Soup on Sunday gave you a reason to love January again.  You’re welcome.

Soup on Sunday takes place THIS SUNDAY, January 25, from 11 am until 2pm at the Phillip L. Van Every Culinary Arts Center on the CPCC campus. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. $30 will gain you general admission and the $40 Soup Lovers’ Special allows you to pick your very own handmade pottery bowl. Call Maribeth Burke at 704.335.4323 for more information. All proceeds support the programs and services of Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region.
