Top your soup with a smile.

The Big Broth

Our new competition to find the tastiest homemade soup has now closed.

Our soup recipe competition might be finished, but that doesn't mean you can't still rustle up a bowl for charity. The Big Broth is a fun activity to do with a bunch of friends, your community group or colleagues on your lunch break. Pick a day, make or buy some lovely soup and toppings, and raise money for homeless young people.

Make your own big broth here

Host The Big Broth on Friday 2 November, serve soup for friends, top it with a smile and raise money to help homeless young people.

How does The Big Broth work?

  1. Participants submitted their favourite soup recipe.
  2. Celebrity judges – including award-winning chef Aldo Zilli and founder of the Wahaca group of Mexican restaurants Thomasina Miers – will narrow down the entries and choose five finalists.
  3. In May, the five finalists will then take part in a cook off in London. Our celebrity panel then will choose the winner. 
  4. Yorkshire Provender will produce the winner's recipe, which will then be sold at supermarkets across the country from Autumn 2019.

We will be looking for a soup made with quality ingredients. We want tasty and interesting flavour combinations. Plus, it’s important for the winner to have a passion for cooking; we hope they put their heart and soul into the recipe. Youth homelessness is an important cause to get behind and the winner’s recipe will genuinely help save lives
