Simone’s Kitchen on Jay Street once again stole⁣ the⁢ show⁢ at the eighth annual Schenectady Soup ‍Stroll, taking home the prestigious “Golden Tureen” award for their mouthwatering Greek-style cauliflower chowder with lemon potatoes.

But the competition was fierce, with Backstage ⁣Pub LLC ⁢clinching the “Silver ​Spoon” for their loaded baked potato & bacon chowder with asiago stuffed gnocchi, sriracha crema, and chives. Meanwhile, Manhattan Exchange secured the ‌”Bronze Ladel”⁣ for their carne asada chipotle corn chowder.

These awards were ​not just handed out arbitrarily – they were based on ‌the votes ⁣of the public, ⁢who dropped off their ballots⁣ before the end of the Soup Stroll. And to add to the excitement, a panel of three judges⁣ selected Tara Kitchen as their judge’s choice ​for their cheezy chicken ‘n bacon corn chowder.

But that’s not all⁢ – Simone’s Kitchen also snagged the⁤ “Most Creative” title from the judging panel,‌ proving that their culinary creativity‌ knows​ no bounds. And let’s not forget about​ Ya⁢ Ya’s House Southern Cuisine, which took home⁢ the title of “Best Chowder” for its Ya Ya’s chicken ⁢‘n dumpling soup ‌entry.

And for those with dietary restrictions,‍ the SUNY Schenectady County Community College food truck was named ‘Best Gluten Free’ soup for ‍its⁢ Chanko Nabe Hotpot soup, catering to ⁢all soup lovers.
