Souperb is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. The soups are all handmade in small batches in a professional kitchen. Souperb opened for business in February 2012 by Joanna Terry. Here is her culinary story.
Family Tradition – Joanna comes from a family committed to feeding the hearts of friends and family with delicious, fresh food. Her grandmother, Myrtle, owned a restaurant in a small farming town where farm-to-table was a daily custom. Farmers would drop their fresh vegetables at the door of the restaurant and Myrtle would create mouth-watering dishes for the town. Joanna’s mom, Mary, learned to cook by Myrtle’s standards and taught her daughters the same fundamental approach toward cooking. Food is the centerpiece of family gatherings and everything is made from scratch with love. Joanna is committed to continuing the tradition with a passion for cooking fresh food.
Professionally Trained Chef – Following her heart, Joanna pursued a professional career in culinary arts and attended culinary school in San Francisco. She developed her skills and enjoyed learning to cook international cuisines. She cooked for large parties as a catering cook at Paula Le Duc and Carrie Dove Catering. She satiated a team of Google employees in San Francisco with weekly meals and found great pleasure in cooking with vegetables. One of the Google team’s favorite dish was her cauliflower curry, which is the inspiration behind her cauliflower curry soup.
Made with Love– Joanna grew up eating homemade soup and loves the aroma of a stock simmering on the stove top. Soups provide the perfect canvas for creating a harmonious blend of flavors. She desires to make healthy soups for busy families, overworked professionals, food lovers and anyone else who appreciates a delicious bowl of soup made from scratch. She enjoys continuing her grandmother’s tradition of using the freshest ingredients to make delicious, heartwarming food.
