You will mix, form, chill, fold and shape your doughs at every step of the process into several different pastries and take home both the finished product and nearly ready plaque to continue working with.

Soup Sisters
 

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers is a non-profit charitable social enterprise dedicated to providing comfort to women, children and youth through the making, sharing and donating of soup.

Anyone can be a Soup Sister and a Broth Brother . Simply join us in one of our soup-making sessions that will provide hundreds of litres of soup to women shelters and programs for youth in crisis right across the country!

 

The concept is simple. Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers are year-round programs where participants pay a $60 registration fee to participate in a soup-making event at a local professional kitchen under the guidance of a chef facilitator. Each event produces approximately 150-200 servings of nourishing soup that are delivered fresh to a local shelter. Events are social evenings with lively conversation, chopping, laughter and warm kitchen camaraderie that culminate in a simple, sit-down supper of soup, salad, bread and wine for all participants.

The Soup Sisters organization does not profit from the $60 participation fee as eighty percent of the $60 participation fee goes to the culinary partner. Soup Sisters is actually a customer of the Culinary Partner and afforded all the benefits of good service, fresh ingredients and operational excellence as any customer would receive. This ensures that the finest ingredients possible are used every time for the soups we provide to women, children and youth.

Soup Sisters
 

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers is a non-profit charitable social enterprise dedicated to providing comfort to women, children and youth through the making, sharing and donating of soup.

Anyone can be a Soup Sister and a Broth Brother . Simply join us in one of our soup-making sessions that will provide hundreds of litres of soup to women shelters and programs for youth in crisis right across the country!

 

The concept is simple. Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers are year-round programs where participants pay a $60 registration fee to participate in a soup-making event at a local professional kitchen under the guidance of a chef facilitator. Each event produces approximately 150-200 servings of nourishing soup that are delivered fresh to a local shelter. Events are social evenings with lively conversation, chopping, laughter and warm kitchen camaraderie that culminate in a simple, sit-down supper of soup, salad, bread and wine for all participants.

The Soup Sisters organization does not profit from the $60 participation fee as eighty percent of the $60 participation fee goes to the culinary partner. Soup Sisters is actually a customer of the Culinary Partner and afforded all the benefits of good service, fresh ingredients and operational excellence as any customer would receive. This ensures that the finest ingredients possible are used every time for the soups we provide to women, children and youth.
