Chefs put best plate forward
DINERS will determine which dish will take home the gold medal at the Soupolympics on the weekend.
Also known as Soup Day, the annual event at the Grafton Regional Gallery has taken on a sporty theme this year to correspond with London 2012.
Hosted by Friends of the Grafton Gallery (FoGG), the Soupolympics aims to raise funds for the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA). A star line-up of cooks and chefs from local restaurants have been training hard.
Head chef Donna Lee of No.1 Duke Street is confident of claiming gold with her delicious roast winter root vegetable soup.
"Everyone loves hot soup with fresh cooked vegies," she said.
A variety of tasty breads will be available for diners to enjoy with their choice of soup on the day.
A licensed bar will also be operating with complimentary tea and coffee. The Soupolympics Soup Day will be held on Sunday.
Entry costs $20 for FoGG members and $25 for non-members.
Bookings can be made by contacting the Grafton Regional Gallery on 6642 3177.
