Its Soup Season!                                                                                                         

Join us for a virtual meeting with Trivia and Soup provided by Burke Corp and Elite Spice​​​​

Join us virtually over the lunch hour on February 15th for a winter meeting of soups and trivia! Choose between a creamy Tomato Basil or a savory Italian Wedding Soup and feel free to give it your own flair! A recipe and shopping list will be provided. Soup mixes and meat will be shipped directly to you a few days before the meeting.


You can choose to register 2 ways:

1) As a group, in which one kit will be sent to your group (preferred method), because its fun to be social!

2) Individually, one kit will be sent to you. Soup mixes are provided by Elite Spice and meat is provided by Burke.

Prepare your soups before the meeting, and then as you eat lunch, we will host a food science trivia competition for glory and prizes! Study up and get your thinking caps ready, we’ll be answering questions from all fields of food science, from regulatory to chemistry to culinary! Prizes and bragging rights will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. We’ll end with announcements and updates from Iowa IFT.
