Friday, March 1, 6 p.m.—GRANVILLE, N.Y. – Warm up with soup and bread from different immigrant regions during the Soup and Bread Night, happening March 1 from 6-9 p.m. at the Slate Valley Museum. The menu will include Welsh Leek, Irish Stew, Italian Minestrone Soup, Polish Borscht, Slovakian Mushroom Soup, Jewish Matzo Ball Soup, and many more.

Visitors can purchase a $8 sampler cup and get a taste of the soups from the ethnic groups that came to the Slate Valley starting 180 years ago.

Diners will also be able to purchase an artisan, handcrafted bowl for $15. These bowls, which attendees are able to take home as a souvenir of the evening, come from The North Granville Pottery Co., which sponsored this event.

“What a fun and tasty way to celebrate our heritage on a chilly winter’s night than by sharing soup and bread together,” said Slate Valley Museum Director Krista Rupe. “The event showcases the culinary delights of the immigrants that bought their recipes with them to America.”

Different members of the museum’s community, Edward’s Market and Village Roots will be making soup for the event. Artesian bread will be provided by Rock Hill Bakery in Glens Falls.

The beautiful artisan bowls come in an array of colors. Additionally there will be a selection The North Granville Pottery Co. items for purchase including vases, large bowls,, mugs, and jewelry.

“One of the great things about growing up in this area were welcoming neighbors. Visiting them on a cold winter day always included a bowl of the most delicious soup and a slice of their wonderfully warm breads to go with it! It was the ethnic diversity in the neighborhoods that allowed us the experience of sampling such an array of foods. We hope our First Friday guests will find our soup sampling as enjoyable and as delicious!” said Molly Biggs Celani, president of Slate Valley Museum’s Board of Trustees.

SVM welcomes others to bring a crockpot of their treasured family culinary delight to the event. Please contact the museum at (518) 642-1417. Proceeds from the event will go towards educational programming for the 2019 season.
