Soup's On! Annual Souper Supper Comes To Broadway at the Beach

Do you love soup?

People have been enjoying the liquid delight since roughly 20,000 B.C., according to historians. In America, the earliest colonists started boiling up the stuff almost as soon as they hit the shores. One hundred years later, the first official Colonial cookbook was assembled with several recipes for soups and bisques.

Soup has proven itself to be a meal with real staying power. We love them all, from chowders and gumbos, to bisques and broth-based soups, to thick, creamy recipes served steaming hot, and fruit-based delights served chilled. We even celebrate soup with festivals and make it the centerpiece of fundraisers.

And if you're a fan of soup, mark your calendar for just such a celebration on Sunday, November 13th, where a plethora of Myrtle Beach's finest varieties of this great liquid food will be served at the 21st Annual Souper Supper at Broadway at the Beach.

From noon to 3 p.m., servers will be ladling out tastings of some of the yummiest soups imaginable. Cool beverages and fresh-baked items by Benjamin's Bakery will also be served, and restaurant-related vendors will be on hand offering some of their best. While dessert lovers will be treated to live demonstrations of cupcake decorating by students from the Academy for Technology & Academics.

This day of soups is guaranteed to delight your tastebuds, while helping to raise funds to support Red Cross efforts to provide Hurricane Matthew relief.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.MyrtleBeachACF.com (adults $12; children 12 and under, $7), and for more details, please visit www.facebook.com/MBACF.

Save the date and join us under the big tent in front of guest services for three hours of souperior deliciousness on Sunday, November 13th!

If you love soups, stews, casseroles, and juicy roasts, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get cooking. At this time of year, comfort food is a major contributor to the joy and camaraderie around a dinner table filled with family and friends.

Some comfort foods are timeless recipes from cherished aunts or grandmothers. But during the months that lead us to springtime, there's also a lot of time to try out some new recipes from other trusted sources. For memorable Southern meals, there's no better cook to turn to for guidance than Paula Deen. Thumb through the pages of her Southern Cooking Bible, and you'll find Paula's down-home blueprints for creating unique soups like Sour Cream, Bacon And Split Pea Soup and Charleston Okra Soup. Consider whipping up Fried Beef Tenderloin With Grits & Gravy or Cheeseburger Meatloaf. And what better way to communicate warmth and coziness on a chilly evening than by serving piping hot servings of Paula's special recipe Southern Chili In A Biscuit Bowl?

As any cook knows, the proper tools are essential to reach culinary excellence.

It has been said that comfort food's real power is in the minds of those who can associate foods with positive family relationships, happy times and childhood memories. Nearly everyone has experiences of sharing homemade dishes that lifted spirits and built camaraderie among family and friends. For some, the very smell of favorite recipes warming on the stove triggers memories, soothes and calms after a challenging day when the weather has been cool and rainy.

Dive Into National Seafood Month At Broadway At The Beach

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Dining

Attention Seafood Lovers!

October is National Seafood Month and Broadway at the Beach is one of the best places in Myrtle Beach to sample some of the ocean's culinary bounty.

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is known for great tropical drinks and songs that pay tribute to the Key West lifestyle playing in the background. But did you know that Margaritaville also serves seafood that will make your mouth sing? Any type of seafood — broiled, grilled or fried — is made to perfection here, as well as some very unique culinary creations. A big favorite is the crispy coconut-encrusted shrimp that comes out of the fryer hot and ready to be dipped in a tangy horseradish-orange marmalade sauce. And Mac 'n Cheese lovers go crazy for Jimmy's version of this all-American dish with its shrimp and white lump crabmeat married with pasta in a Boursin cream sauce.

Year after year, the Original Shucker's Raw Bar is voted Best Raw Bar on the entire Grand Strand. But the restaurant's commitment to serving great seafood doesn't stop there. A feast at Shucker's can begin with any of a variety of lip-smacking appetizers, including the popular fried seafood sampler brimming with calamari, grouper fingers, shrimp, scallops and oysters. Shucker's carefully prepares a wide variety of seafood from fried and steamed oysters, to sauteed scallops and shrimp, to the blackened fish of the day. One of the most scrumptious and inclusive feasts it offers is the "Steam Pot" which has one whole pound of crab legs and a bounty of oysters, clams, mussels and shrimp. Split it with a friend — it's big enough for two.

Landry's Seafood delivers the true flavor of the Gulf Coast and dishes out New Orleans influences with creole and cajun seasonings. This is where you'll find one of the South's most famous signature dishes like shrimp & grits made with creole sauce and cajun andouille sausage. Treat your tastebuds to Tilapia Hemingway with its parmesan encrusted goodness topped with lump blue crab meat and lemon butter. Or dive into plump, seared scallops with sweet corn fondue, crab orzo, garlic sautéed spinach, and succulent, blistered grape tomatoes.

Over at Key West Grill, they celebrate the beach lifestyle with careful preparation of fresh local seafood and recipes straight from the Florida Keys. On the restaurant's deck overlooking Lake Broadway, you can experience the restaurant's fresh catch of the day in one of eight special Key West ways. Imagine an evening dinner of pan-seared fish with tart mustard and lime butter, or paired with pineapple and plantain chutney, or prepared with mango, ginger and shaved coconut. Yum.

Joe's Crab Shack is the place to go when you want to strap on a bib and enjoy your favorite bucket of crab. Joe's has it all — King, Queen, Snow and Dungeness crab. The menu also features lots and lots of shrimp dishes, including the crowd-favorite Southern Stuffed Shrimp — jumbo grilled bacon-wrapped shrimp filled with seafood stuffing and served with crab dirty rice, hushpuppies, vegetables and buttery spiced TABASCO® Brand Pepper Sauce. Fish and lobster lovers will find no better treat than Joe's Redfish 'N Lobster with its seared redfish topped with creamy lobster sauce loaded with spinach, mushrooms and more lobster, accompanied by crab dirty rice. And, don't be surprised if you hear a few puns from your server while you're there. They dish those out just for the halibut.

Some of the best tastes of the sea are at Broadway. Celebrate National Seafood Month with us!
