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)

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!!)
