Comfort Food Cooking: Crock Pot Ribollita Soup

Join Simon Bell, chef from the Parkdale Food Centre, to learn how to make this Italian hearty vegetarian soup.  “Ribolata” meaning “reboiled” in English lives up to its name, as it tastes just as delicious the day after as the day you make it. It’s typically made with tomatoes, dried beans or pulses and kale and served with crusty bread and parmesan cheese.  


This is the first of three Comfort Food Cooking demos.  Join us and enjoy new recipes!


Simon is a long standing veteran of the Ottawa food scene. Having worked in Kitchens since the mid nineties, from Montreal to Paris, he prides himself on having a deep understanding of the diversity of food and its impact. In Ottawa he was part of the team that brought Oz Kafe to the forefront of the Chefs community and now finds himself at the helm of the Parkdale Food Centre Kitchen where he takes pride in his ability to learn from others and impart his own knowledge and understanding of food.

Simon uses his voice and privilege as a Chef to help bring opportunities to those who enter the Parkdale Kitchen, to learn, grow and teach others their own personal food stories.
