Soup and Pie- What Blew Me Away in 2010

Buffetbuster deserves the credit for this years title. We were discussing my year in Roadfood and I mentioned that there was lots of soup and lots of pie and he suggested the theme for this years'  best of list- Soup and Pie.

I usually begin my top 10 lists after Christmas. Although this year I will begin with a Pre- Christmas taster (no pun intended) simply listing the best soups and the best pies. I'll list the remaining top 10 lists, as usual, after Christmas...
 
Here we go:
 
Top 10 Soups of 2010 (in no particular order) 
 
1- Corn Chowder-  Soup and Greens  Barre VT
 

 
Thick n' creamy redolent of corn with hints of bacon.
 
 
2- Chicken Noodle, Chicken Borscht and Green Bean and Ham - Breadbasket Newton KS

 
All three were extaordinarily and equally good therefore since they were all served at the
Breadbasket I am counting all three as "one".
 
3- Knoephla Soup- Fried's Family Restaurant Mandan ND
 

 
Hearty Chicken and Potato Soup, generously loaded with dumplings. The "official" soup of
North Dakota
 
4- Matzoh Ball Soup- 2nd Avenue Deli- New York NY
 

 
In my opinion. the Best of the New York Delis-  Light Fluffy Matzoh Balls that would make the archetypical "Jewish Grandma" proud.
 
5- Wild Rice Soup- Northern Lights Cafe- Beaver Bay MN
 

 
More of a buttery broth than cream, the least traditional of the lot, this soup packed the most flavor.
 
6. Cream of Wild Rice Soup- Kafe Stuga Harris MN
 

 
Substantial, and loaded with toothy, chewy, grainy wild rice in each spoonful.
 
 
7. Tomato Crab Soup- A.W. Shucks Norfolk VA
 

Just loaded with hunks of fresh crabmeat, with strong hits of old bay and worcestershire  in the zesty tomato stock
 
8. Minorcan Chowder- Salt Water Cowboys St. Augustine FL
 

 
addictive and peppery
 
9.  She Crab Soup- 82 Queen Charleston SC
 

 
This creamy nectar is sided with sherry to add at will
 
10. Okra Gumbo- Gullah Cuisine Charleston SC
 

 
savory and spicy with generous amounts of shrimp, sausage and chicken.
Honorable Mentions
 
Peanut Soup -Surrey House Surry VA
 

 
Beer Cheese Soup- TNT's Diner West Fargo ND
 

 
Ham and Bean Soup- Riefe's Family Restaurant Davenport IA
 

 
 
Cheddar Soup- Simon Pierce Restaurant Quechee VT
