Our Inaugural Event — Photos!

with 4 comments


Cafe del Mondo hosted our inaugural Slow Food Columbus dinner on the evening of the 20th. The four-course meal highlighted local produce and meats, and each course was paired with a lovely Italian wine. (View menu)


Two of our fearless leaders, Colleen and Haley, share a laugh with Alex, manager and espresso artiste, before the event.


The organic pasta Bolognese with Spectrum Farm beef and organic vegetables, served family-style.


John and Mary Ellen Wozny of Spectrum Farm, describing the care and feeding of Murray Grey beef cattle; other speakers (not pictured) included Bob Hicks of Mid/West Fresh Foods, Craig Powell of Mount Victory Meats, and Michael Jones of Local Matters.



Congratulations to everyone who put in so many hours of hard work to make this happen, and thanks again to Bill, Bruna, Alex and the crew at del Mondo for making everything run as smoothly as it did; to John, Bob, Craig and Michael for coming out to speak; and to Jeni Britton for donating her terrific Ohio Spicebush Berry ice cream (and for teaching us all what spicebush berries taste like!!)
