Launnie's soup showdown is back

AUGUST 1st – 31st 2024

This winter we'll be hosting the annual foodie's competition, this time embracing the perfect wintertime meal: the old-fashioned soup.

This delicious competition is as much for the soup aficionado as it is for the chef. With prizes for both the winning venue and voter, this is the perfect opportunity to support our local eateries, and keep cosy and well-nourished this winter.

Taste your way through a series of delicious recipes from six of the city's kitchens, and cast your vote for your chance to win.
