David Bowman was presented the Bronze Ladle for Creamy Mushroom Soup.
Karen Warren received the Silver Ladle for Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup.
and Tom Wilson was awarded the Gold Ladle for Minestra Maritata (Italian Wedding Soup) vindicating his decision to hand roll hundreds of tiny meatballs (which is not happening again anytime soon).
