Logen Crew – SLC Eatery; Jordan Miller – Park City Culinary Institute; Shon Foster – Sego Restaurant; Harmons; Adam Kreisel – Chaia Cucina; Buzz Wiley – Pallet; Nathan Powers – Bambara; Caffe Ibis (coffee mocktails); Sean Neves – Water Witch (cocktail); Francis Fecteau – Libation (wine). More chefs will be announced soon.
Harmons, a locally owned and family-run grocery, is this year’s sponsor. Additional sponsorships are still available: Call Gwen Crist, 801-581-0740 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Feast is accompanied by a renowned silent auction, with many of the items related to Slow Food Utah’s mission.
Winners will also be announced at the event for the 2019 Snail Awards, the group’s annual tradition to honor those in our community who are dedicated to Slow Food principles and ardent supporters of Slow Food Utah.
Proceeds from this event go directly to Slow Food Utah’s microgrant program, which has funded more than 100 food-centric projects over the last 12 years, including school and community gardens, small farmers, food artisans, education programs and local food initiatives, totaling more than $123,000.
