This year soup eaters will have extra incentive to vote for their favorite Soup Fest soups: a prize package from Manhattan’s and Whitefish Properties.
Every year votes are tallied for the coveted Golden Ladle during Crosslake’s Soup Fest, a part of the Winterfest activities. Voters pick their favorite soup in two categories: culinary and amateur. Any Soup Fest site with a professional chef is in the culinary category, while other stores and participants fall under the amateur category.
When participants cast their ballots this year, they will automatically be entered to win an overnight stay at Whitefish Properties and a $50 gift certificate to Manhattan’s Restaurant. Participants must fill out the form with their contact information, and only one ballot is allowed per person.
Currently the Army Corps of Engineers and the Riverside Inn hold the coveted Golden Ladle and will compete for the award again this year against nearly 20 local businesses and restaurants. Soup will be served at numerous locations throughout Crosslake beginning at noon on Feb. 1.
