Savory stocks are made with care – for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian soups. They proudly seek out the finest Midwestern growers and support our incredible local agriculture and farmers.

About Karl’s Craft Soup:
Karl Bader is crazy about soup, and loves making the best soup in Chicago. At age eleven, Karl got the chance to make a batch of Loaded Baked Potato at his parents’ restaurant and was hooked instantly. Soups were a mainstay at his former Oak Park eatery and also served as the impetus behind a series of healthy eating lunch projects at various local schools. In addition to Karl’s Craft Soup, Karl caters private events (both casual and fine-dining), and serves as a personal chef, specializing in restrictive diets and healthy eating.
