POWER OUTAGE: Kungfu Bistro cooks up soup by flashlight for charity event

We got an email this afternoon from Margarita at Kungfu Bistro. They are trying to cook 30 litres of soup for Great Bowls of Fire, a charity event tonight to raise money for the Ottawa Food Bank. But with the power out they have to do it by flashlight!

“With the power outage hitting us this afternoon, we desperately in the dark (with flashlights) made our Thai coconut curry soup for the Ottawa Food Bank. Weeks ago we agreed to donate 30 litres of our gluten free thai soup to support the Great Bowls of Fire which would go towards fundraising for the Ottawa food bank. The outage was a surprise challenge but we are determined to see this through. It’s the only food we will prepare tonight (if the outage continues) as it would be too dangerous go attempt anything else.”

UPDATE: About 400 people attended the charity event on Saturday and at least $15,000 was raised through ticket sales.
