Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Today the weather may be hit or miss, but it’s nothing a hot cup of free soup can’t cure. Today through Thursday in Providence, the Hood cream-inspired Soup Boutique, a touring food truck, will offer free samples of chef-created soups featuring Hood cream.  They will be in Kennedy Plaza on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and at Grant’s Block on Thursday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. And for every sample distributed, Hood will donate one dollar to The Rhode Island Food Bank!

Hood teamed up with two chefs to develop the soup recipes, including Ben Lloyd of Providence’s Tazza Cafe and Jonathan Dunn of Lavishly Dunn Catering of Boston and Cape Cod. Chef Lloyd helped Hood create his popular celeriac and leek potage, a creamed and pureed French-style soup, which he serves at the restaurant. Hood scaled up his recipe, but it includes the same ingredients Lloyd uses at Tazza, including celery root and Hood cream.

“This soup does very well at the restaurant,” Lloyd says. “Celery root is one of those great winter root vegetables that doesn’t get used a lot. It has a great, vibrant flavor and we get a lot of positive feedback on it. The eight percent fat content in the cream really helps the soup come together.”

Hood will also distribute recipe cards, so you can learn how to make the soups you’ll be slurping (for free!) at home. You can also track the truck on Facebook and on Twitter using the hashtag #HoodSoupTruck. To participate in the Soup Boutique giveaway, post a response to the question “In what dish do you love using @HPHood Cream?” to Twitter using the #HoodSoupTruck hashtag or share your response on to the contest tab on Hood’s Facebook page. One lucky winner will be selected each week to receive a Hood Soup Boutique prize package, including a $100 restaurant gift card to that week’s chef’s restaurant, Hood Cream coupons, cookware and a Hood New England Dairy Cook-Off cookbook. Entries are limited to one per person, per week. Here's more information on the contest.
