Hope this works!!

So I’m reeeealy hoping my soup this week will come out the color I’m seeing in my head. I did a test run on a small scale over the weekend and it was a success but sometimes things are different when executed on a larger scale. The ingredients are superb so I’m confident in the flavor, bear with me on the color! Many thank yous to José from Cortez farms for finding me 100 lbs of purple carrots!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Who’s planning to drive up the new hwy 1 next week?! The cambria market should be fun and filled with new faces! It opens on the 20th which is a Cambria market day! Manager Jeff is throwing a party and serving virgin “mudslides” which I think is super clever!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood park, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in Cambria

1. Creamy Purple Carrot

2. Moonstone Chili (I named it that because the beans I use remind me of the rocks on moonstone beach in Cambria)

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars! Also, I think I’ve almost convinced Brian to stay my soup both assistant (at least for the summer) I think he’s doing a really great job and I hope you think so too!

Thank you all so so much for your kindness to Summer last week! I think she was a bit overwhelmed by the ourpour of love and generosity you showed her as she left on her new adventure!

It’s looking like my friend, Brian will be called in for soup duty because the perfect soup booth assistant has yet to be discovered. Brian is an artist, author and photographer (which is why he can squeeze in some soup ladling on the side) he recently wrote and photographed a book called “can crafted” in which he goes deep into the world of European street art. You can check out more of his work on his Instagram pages @cancraftedart and @bloodyyank . Brian is a huge supporter of our farmers markets and can often times be seen filling in for the raw milk booth, little red hen bread and the green love elixir bar so he’s well versed in farmers market customer service.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria:

1. Tuscan White Bean

2. Tempeh Pósole

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars! And also, Summer’s position is still available. Brian can only fill in for a while because he’s off to Madagascar and Zimbabwe in October. He will gladly step down should someone want the gig!

Last day of Summer is the first day of Summer

Well, you guys, I’m so sad to say that this will be our dear soup booth assistant, Summer’s, last week behind the ladle. I am beyond grateful for our time together and wish her the best of the best that life has to offer in her new home. Be sure to wish her well, if you would, as I know she deeply cares about all of you.

Also, happiest of fathers day to all the dads!

Soup, bikes and dogs

If you have been following this blog for… well, even a week, you may have caught on that my whole entire life is soup, bikes and dogs, and you guys, this week was no exception. As I write this I have two pooped out pooches laying on my toes. The bikes are hanging back up on the wall and I’m planning out soups for the upcoming week.

I hope you all had a beautiful (despite windy) weekend. I hope everyone who graduated last week is getting a well deserved break and I’m really looking forward to seeing my summer visitors!

Also, I’m still looking for the right fit to work at the soup booth. You may have heard, our dear Summer will be moving and is unwilling to commute 13 hours each way to work… (what a slacker 😉).

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro bay and Friday in cambria

1. Lentil Vegetable

2. Creamy Cauliflower

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Fancy soup booth

The soup booth moved to fancytown on Saturday for an event at Hearst castle called “twilight on the terrace.” It was so fun to participate and I even got to break away for a bit to enjoy the festivities!

You may have noticed a rather tall person working the booth last week! That’s my buddy, Brian and he’s kindly filling in as soup booth assistant cause …. 😥😥 Summer is leaving us! Summer’s position will be available in a couple weeks but I’d love to start training someone ASAP. If you are interested or know of anyone looking for a fast paced but fun gig, feel free to reach out stephanieburchiel@gmail.com or drop a resume by the booth!

Ok! On to soup! Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week!
