Sustainability and soup come together in perfect harmony this week, with the special return appearance from Joost Bakker's (Greenhouse by Joost, Silo) envelope-pushing soup bar, Brothl. Yep, the celebrated zero-waste advocate is reviving his famed eatery concept as a one-day pop-up at Federation Square this Friday, October 15.

Setting up shop on the River Terrace from 3–8pm, the pop-up will showcase a handful of Bakker's latest clever low-waste soup recipes — including a meat broth crafted from wild Australian game, which can cause harm to our natural environment, and a vegetarian soup option starring wild-harvested seaweed and 'ugly' mushrooms. They'll be going for $15 a pop, served in packaging from ReturnR's game-changing zero-waste system.

There's more supreme slurping to be found on the day's drinks menu, which features a selection of Mac Forbes wine, as well as bottles of the new limited-release Spring Gin from Darling Distillery. This drop's made from rainwater collected onsite, and seasonal fruits and herbs grown in Fed Square's own Future Food System garden — Bakker's self-sustaining food production pop-up. The gin will be selling for $95 a bottle, available from Friday until the limited batch sells out.
