    The soupmonger’s share. We will make you 5 litres of soup in a flavour of your choice: that’s enough to feed 15 people. We will send you a list of at least 60 different soups to choose from and agree a date with you. You will need to collect it from either the cafe or the kitchen because soup doesn’t post well.

    Long Distance Soupon. Based on a backer idea, this is something for people who visit Edinburgh from time to time or maybe come for a long visit to the Edinburgh Festival as we are right at the heart of the Fringe. As a thanks for supporting us, we'll give you the equivalent of 16 Twopons for this pledge. Each time you visit us, you and a guest get the soup for free until you have used up all 16. There's no time limit for you to use the soupon and no restrictions on how often per week you can use it. We will email you a PDF with a unique Kickstarter code and you can start using it next time you are in Edinburgh.

    Soup masterclass. This is a half day in the ktichen with Elaine for you and a friend (or just you if you prefer). The session will cover flavour combinations, finishing soups, matching breads and toppings and assistance in making a soup of your choice. At the end of it you get to take your soup home, an apron each and of course the 12 card recipe collection so you can put what you've learned into practice.

    Soup at home. This is a brand new reward we're offering. For this level of support we will bring a souper dining event to your house for up to 10 people. It's good for anywhere in Edinburgh - inside the bypass area. You choose an evening for the event and we'll bring along a selection of our finest soups, salads, deserts, toppings, a fruit platter and of course artisan bread. It will all be delivered to you on the Union bike (heck we might even let you have a test ride) and you get a soupmonger for up to three hours to see to your every (soup-based) need. This may be a great way for several of you to club together and spread the cost for something we plan to make very special. (This is also added to the Soup Maestro.)

    Soup Fashionista. As a thanks for supporting us you get this strictly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dye Jani's hair (the mohawk bit of it as the rest is too short) whatever colour you like. The day we hit our goal, even if the project is not yet over, you can choose a colour or specific hair dye. We will video the whole process and stick it on YouTube as well as here and Jani will wear it for at least 2 weeks. Your fashion sense will be admired by each and every customer served by Jani. You can of course pop into the cafe and have your photo taken with your male masterpiece and enjoy a soup on us while you are there.

    Soup genius. We work with you to create a recipe to your instructions, you choose a name (within reason naturally) and then once we have got it right, we will sell it in the cafe and via wholesale. Who knows how far your soup can go? If you can get into Edinburgh you can come into the kitchen and develop it with us, otherwise we’ll work with you to make that soup the best it can be. (Maybe we’ll Skype you into the kitchen!) Of course you will be welcome to come in and have it for free whenever it is on. If you are not in Edinburgh we’ll make sure you get plenty of photos of the soup in action.
