Behind the Scenes: Soupalicious 2011 in Support of Plant a Row, Grow a Row

On occasion I get to travel out of the office and meet some amazing people at some spectacular events. As a matter of fact, this past Sunday, I did just that!

Mushroom Canada sponsored a great event called Soupalicious, which was hosted by the Compost Council of Canada in support of the Plant a Row, Grow a Row program. Lots of celebrity chef and news-makers graced the stage, but nothing could compare to who I stood next to for the day…

Johnny Bower Mushroom Soup

Johnny Bower.

Yes, on Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of cooking & serving French Mushroom Soup with Mr. Johnny Bower of the Toronto Maple Leafs. We were joined by over 50 local restaurants who came out to serve some hot soup, for a good cause, on a cold rainy day.
