The 7th Annual Feast of Five Senses will take place on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. at Kimball Distributing Viking Showroom, 2223 South, 300 East in Salt Lake City. In the name of good taste and to support Slow Food Utah’s Micro-grant Fund, seven local celebrated chefs will use the bounty of Utah's local food producers  and artisans in an extraordinary evening of delicious food and conviviality to raise funds for the Slow Food Utah's wide range of programs. 

 

Feast makers for 2011 include:

  • David Hammel of Liberty Heights Fresh
  • Greg Neville of L├╝gano
  • Ryan Lowder of Copper Onion
  • Nathan Powers of Bambara
  • Michael Richey of Pago
  • Amber Billingsley of Vinto
  • Letty Flatt of Deer Valley
  • Uinta Beer will offer pairings
  • Francis Fecteau of Libation will be pairing a wine with each course
Tickets are available online at www.slowfoodutah.org or by mail to Slow Food Utah, PO Box 581213, SLC, UT 84158-1213. Cost to attend is $85 per person, with a $35 optional wine pairing. Tickets for the Chef's Kitchen Table, where guests can watch and mingle with the Feastmakers, are $115 per person, with a $35 optional wine pairing. NOTE: Chef’s Table seats are sold out!
Seating is limited so early reservations are highly recommended.
 This annual fundraiser allows Slow Food Utah to offer a wide range of programs and to fund the micro-grant program in order to fill gaps that they see in traditional funding sources for food-related projects, especially for small-scale food growers and producers, community innovators and educators.  In past years, Slow Food Utah has funded schoolyard gardens, Salt Lake Community College Seeds of Hope program and has helped small farmers build greenhouses to extend the growing season and start Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs.
In addition to the restaurants and chefs, Harmon’s Grocery and Sysco are also proud sponsors of this year's Feast.
