Moose McGuire’s Joins “Soup for Thought”
The Mississippi Textile Museum’s popular fundraiser “Soup for Thought” is back again, and on Saturday February 28, Paul Obrien, head chef at Almonte’s new Moose McGuire’s Pub and Grill will be adding his delicious soup to those contributed by the area’s other stellar chefs.
Paul has worked across Canada, as well as internationally. While working in a Bankok bistro, providing treats for Western tourists, he volunteered at the local culinary school, helping them develop a program for the international market. He is excited to be working in Almonte and is anxious to work with local farmers and growers to provide patrons with fresh wholesome food.
Soups will also be donated by the Heirloom Café Bistro, Palms Coffee Shop, The Chef’s Table at Home, Mill Street Crepe Company, Foodies Fine Foods, Robin’s Nest Tea Room, the Barley Mow, Ballygiblin’s, and Café Postino. The Friends of the MVTM will provide delicious desserts (some gluten-free), as well as tea and coffee. Sarah Robertson, of Prior Engagements, will be loaning dinnerware for the event. Once again, the Almonte Potters Guild will be donating fabulous handmade soup bowls for each patron to take home.
There will be two sittings: 11:30 am to 1 pm and 1:30 pm to 3 pm. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door (children under 12 are free) and are available from Baker Bob’s, Pêches & Poivre and at the Museum, 3 Rosamond St. E., Almonte. Don’t miss this chance to have a wonderful lunch and take home a one-of-a-kind treasure!
