Seasonal and locally produced soups & comfort foods

About

What is Beautiful Soup?  Beautiful Soup is a Detroit based food company. For now our focus is delicious, seasonal soups served with homemade bread. We hope to someday have our own little place but for now we make, cater and deliver soups!

Our Mission-Soup conjures up images of home, comfort and rootedness. Our city and region are experiencing enormous changes and thoughtfully and locally produced food can go a long way towards establishing a sense of home and community in times of change. The mission of Beautiful Soup is to do just that. Beautiful Soup believes in simple, well-crafted and comfortable foods. Soups and foods that are adventurous in flavor, but rooted in a place.

What’s in our soups? Our soups are made from scratch, starting with homemade broth! We focus on seasonal soups so we can purchase the majority of our ingredients from local suppliers. During the summer months our soups and food are made from about 80-90% locally grown and sourced ingredients. During the winter months about 70-75%. We do our best to connect with other local food businesses, farms and suppliers for all our needs.

Where do we get our name? Beautiful Soup comes from a song the Mock Turtle sings in Alice in Wonderland:

Beautiful Soup so rich, So green,
Waiting in a hot tureen
Who for such dainties would not stoop.

Soup of the evening
Beautiful Soup,
Soup of the evening,
Beautiful Soup

Beautiful Soup, Who cares for fish,
Game or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two
Pennyworth only of Beautiful Soup?

Pennyworth only of Beautiful Soup,
