Perfect for that first burst of cold weather and to enjoy throughout fall and winter, split pea soup is a classic American soup made from split peas – peas that have been hulled, dried, and split. Pika's soups are handcrafted with fresh vegetables that arrive in the morning to their kitchen and, by the afternoon, are transformed into this delicious, soul warming soup. Just like with all their homemade soups, the foundation is a vegetable broth that they make in house - from vegetable scraps that have roasted for hours, and make for a healthy, clean low sodium base.

Pika's Farm Table is an artisanal kitchen located in Lake Katrine, NY, along the Hudson River. Their meals are influenced by the textures and tastes that founders Pika and Luc Roels grew up with in Belgium. They also draw inspiration from their travels and stays in Italy and France. Pika and Luc want to honor their Belgian Grandmothers, who made a meal out of the freshest ingredients, by in turn making meals out the freshest possible ingredients for their customers. Over a decade ago, they started selling quiche at their local farmers' market. Pika's gradually expanded, offering appetizers, oven dishes, aromatic soups, dips and condiments, and truly authentic Liège Waffles (the best you will ever taste!). To this day, everything is handmade in our Catskills kitchen, with an emphasis on real and local ingredients.
