The Soup Cook Off began as an idea I had over six years ago. The idea came from my love of The Great Chowder Cook Off in Rhode Island. My best friend and I went every year, and always had an amazing time. I decided to create my own, for charity, right here in Pennsylvania. I ran the idea by a few close friends, who said such positive things about my idea. They fully believed I was capable of making it happen. This was the beginning of something greater than I could have ever imagined.More!
