Scoreboard Burgdorf D’Region | Chicken soup on the hotel terrace

Many Burgdorfers have no doubt already marked one date in their plans: Chicken Soup on Saturday, February 5, 2022. It will no longer be served by the Altstadtleist on Kronenplatz, but by the team from the “Stadthaus” on the terrace of Str. sold hotels. Until now, the chefs of the Stadthaus carried the large pots to Kronenplatz, where members of the Leist board offered them at a stand specially set up for the purpose. As soon as the soup was finished, the “creators” ordered more. A little later, the cooks set off again. This kind of workflow was burdensome for all involved. “It’s a pleasure and honor for us to be able to carry on the tradition of chicken soup ourselves,” says Stadthaus director Marvin Portmann. At the same time, he announced that the chicken soup ball, which was supposed to take place in the evening of the same day, was canceled due to the corona. Leist’s board is firmly convinced that it is handing its “office” over to the right hands. “The Stadthaus has been the ideal partner for us to support this custom for many years. He will continue to lead this ‘legacy’ with heart and soul.” Both parties assure that no changes will be made to the soup in accordance with the motto “Never change the chüschtigs recipe”.
