Week 2 of the competition saw Chef Donnie Carlson of Bad Tattoo Brewing win by just four points with his turkey bacon and squash soup, beating out Granny’s steak soup, prepared by Chef David Stern of Theo’s Restaurant.
The annual contest brings in local chefs to prepare soups for the diners at the soup kitchen, both giving them a treat and helping to raise the profile of the Soupateria, which provides free lunches every day for disadvantaged members of the community.
The first week of the competition came down to a coin toss when Chef Chris Garvey — Penticton Secondary’s Culinary Arts instructor — put his potato ham chowder up against the creation of one of his former students, Chef Alexa Warner of Brodo Kitchen, and the judges were evenly split on their favourite.
Garvey won the coin toss, so he will be back for the third and final round, again facing a former student, Chef Carlson.
