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)

Cin-cin!

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!!)

    Hello and welcome to the Slow Food family! I’m so proud that my boyhood home now has a convivium, and pleased to hear that it started out so well. My mother attended the dinner too (that’s her in the center of the 4th photo), and had nothing but great things to say. Keep up the good work, and help Slow Food create a food system that’s “Good, Clean, and Fair.”

    Looks lovely. Maybe in 5 years when my daughter can sit still we can enjoy slow food. I can’t wait to try Cafe Del Mondo. Passed by it a million times and never went in.

    Hi Dave. Don’t know why your daughter should have to sit still — we sure don’t!! ;-)
