Thank you Katharine Mardirosian for speaking with Rob Chevez about 100 Bowls Of Soup, your locally run business.


Katherine was inspired by her mother-in-law’s cooking and her love of soup.  She started 100 Bowls of Soup in 2009 with the idea of sharing simple, homemade nourishing soup and stock with friends and family.  What she created was soup from scratch and real bone stock that was as flavorful and fresh as it was nourishing.  Cooking seasonally Katharine got to know the farmers and artisans who grew and raised the ingredients she used in her soups and stock. So she began cooking her first batches of soup in a local church kitchen, selling the soup at several artisan food stores and at the Reston Farmers Market.  Katherine was fortunate to find commercial kitchen space and a local partner in Maple Avenue Market in Vienna. With continued growth came the need for more kitchen space and a decision to create her very own kitchen space. Her new kitchen in Herndon, Virginia is finally finished.  From the first few bowls of soup Katherine made in her home kitchen until now, it has been a journey of discovery— learning about the many sources and diversity of local ingredients, developing relationships with farmers and artisans, working with a talented staff of home cooks, experimenting with ingredients, creating new recipes and gathering valuable feedback from soup enthusiasts near and far.
