Slow Food Columbia came back to host the Slow Food event here at Indie Grits for the fifth year! Festival attendees were invited to partake in a laid back tasting party which included “food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it, and good for the planet”–the goal of the slow food movement.
Chefs from throughout the Midlands prepared a dish featuring at least one local, sustainable major ingredient. Our chefs got to enjoy some friendly competition while guests enjoyed the innovative, quality dishes that resulted! Tunes by the Greater Columbia Society for the Preservation of Soul and cash bar with SC beers by The Whig.
We even invited our dedicated foodies to join our chefs by bringing their own dish for the Slow Food Potluck in exchange for a discounted ticket price. At this ticket level, guests bring roughly 20 taste portions of a dish made with at least one sustainable, local ingredient. Slow Food Columbia Potlucks are a place where resourcefulness, simplicity and creativity shine! Past Slow Food Potluck favorites include dishes like radish butter, tomato-chocolate truffles, and free-range coq au vin.
This is one of our most popular events, and for good reason!
