TORONTO — Marty G. Sensations, a food product line and charitable partnership headed by producer and celebrity host, Marty Galin, will be serving up free, chef-inspired hot soup and a bagel from Nu Bügel to hundreds of people from multiple soup stations around Toronto on February 14. The soups will reflect many diverse cultures from around the world. And will help provide food for the most vulnerable.
Soup will be distributed at Hothouse Restaurant, 519 Community Centre, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Burger Shack, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, St. Michael & All Angels Church, Oakwood Hardware Food & Drink, Bank of Montreal Church St, Hey Caramba and more. Event partners include Loblaws, Central Toronto Wrestling Club, Freddy’s Pie, Local 27 Carpenters & Allied Works and many more.
Marty G. Sensations is encouraging corporations to make donations to help buy food, products and advertisements for the event; chefs to contribute their talents; and producers to contribute their food, such as carrots, onions and potatoes. Volunteers are also needed. The donations from sponsors and from the people that want to donate during the event will go to the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation and Kidney CARE Network International.
Galin created the first incarnation of Souperlicious! with the Growers of the Holland Marsh and hosted the event for two successful years. In 2007, Galin created the world’s largest salad which fed 20,000 people, and he also organized Currylicious with 15 Toronto restaurants, serving 15,000 meals with 15,000 naan breads on the side.
Galin’s partner, chef Errico Giordano, was born in Naples and moved to Toronto in 2011. Together, Galin and Giordano have cooked new creations to add to their product line, including pumpkin, blueberry and limoncello butter tarts and Kosher stuffed bagels with spinach and feta, as well as kosher bourekas with mashed potato.
