In its 11th year, Hot Soup Cool Jazz features some of the most prestigious restaurants in St. John’s as they compete in a gourmet soup tasting competition in aid of those facing mental health challenges, homelessness and poverty through programs provided by Choices for Youth, Canadian Mental Health Association Newfoundland and Labrador Division, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues and The Jimmy Pratt Memorial Outreach Centre.
The event offers a relaxed, social atmosphere where attendees mingle with friends, stakeholders and celebrity servers while enjoying gourmet soups, live jazz music, a silent auction, raffles and some fun games. Vote for your favorite soup to win the TD Tasters Choice Award, while a panel of judges from the Chef’s Association provide awards for their top three soup selections.
There is no event where you can enjoy the fabulous creations of St. John's finest establishments all in one place, served to you by local celebrities!
