Review: The Soup Guy

The Soup Guy is just that, a guy selling soup!  But what's great about The Soup Guy is that, as much as possible, The Soup Guy soups are made using locally grown organic and all natural ingredients!

Curtis Gould, owner of The Soup Guy, grew up watching PBS cooking shows and cooking in the kitchen with his mom.  Cooking became his creative outlet and in his youth, he found it was a valuable and useful skill set.  It was then that his life took an unconventional turn and he moved to India to live in an Ashram ended up in the kitchen making vegetarian meals for upwards of 80 people.  His specialty quickly became soup!  After returning home, he continued to cook and make soups on the weekend.  He has since turned his soup passion into a business featuring all natural ingredients.

I was able to get a taste of his new soup flavor, NH Bison, Black Bean & Vegetable Chili.  It's a very delicious chili with a sweet yet spicy (mild to medium spice) meld of spices.  The black beans played in nicely to smooth out the texture and flavor.  The bison wasn't gamey tasting at all which I was pleasantly surprised by and you can't beat free-range meats!

He also sells Twisted Emerald Isle P’tattie n Leek Soup which is usually the first to sell out and also a Malaysian Carrot, Sweet Potato & Roasted Spice Soup.

You can find Curtis, The Soup Guy, at the upcoming Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers' Markets, the next two Rye Winter Farmers' Markets, as well as at the New England Marketplace at One Washington Center in Dover on April 24th.  While at the Seacoast Eat Local Winter Farmers' Markets, be sure to try their soup in a gluten free bread bowl featuring bread from Abigail's Bakery.

His soups are also for sale at these two retail locations:

“Come back to soup…the original comfort food.”

I tried a african carrot soup with chick peas once from the Soup Guy and it was fabulous!

I've become an addict of the Leek and Potato Soup - just love that little habanera 'kick', nothing tastes better on a cold day. I did take home some Malayasian Carrot and Sweet Potato soup this last weekend and what a wonderful suprise that was -- sweet with a hint of spices. Big dollop of natural yogurt and some pitta chips with it made it the perfect meal!

Slightly off-topic, yet related. My mom has a small side business making soups, also from local organic ingredients, whenever possible. Added bonus? She delivers! You're in Barrington right? My mum is in Gonic...if you ever want a sample I'd bet she'd bring you one. (She also makes the majority of the prepared foods at Tuttles in Dover).
