In the end it was Stern’s first-time creation of a salmon bacon tomato bisque which edged out Elite Restaurant chef Jaymz Millar’s roasted turkey herb soup according to the taste buds of the more than 60 voters.

This was the second annual event which included a host of celebrity judges and the real winners were the patrons of the Soupateria who got to sample some of the best of the best during the four-week competition.

Helping out the chefs in the kitchen were student cooks and this year Stern teamed up with Pen Hi’s Kaitlyn Turley for the win.

The winner was awarded the coveted Silver Spoon trophy by Soupateria society president Rod Strike.

The downtown facility is open 365 days a year and provides, hot nourishing meals to those in need.
