Linda McKeever has always been passionate about soup. Linda lived in New York for several years and enjoyed the wide array of different ethnics foods and became determined to bring her own special qualities of cooking to a South African audience. When Linda hosted a dinner party in August 2011 in Cape Town, and as a starter served a delicious Seafood soup with the freshest of ingredients, the response from the guests was extraordinary. Someone piped up that it was the best soup that he had tasted in the world!
Well, such a reaction needed follow up, so Linda and her partner, Christian visited the owners of The Bay Harbour Market with thermoses full of different soups to taste. The response was positive and that very next Saturday ZOOP! was open for business selling its home made wares from a tiny table within the market.
