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
