Next Slow Food Columbia meeting: Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Hi everyone - just a quick post to let you know that our next meeting will be held at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, January 7. Ben and Kristen DuBard will share their experience at Terra Madre in October with all of us through stories and pictures. This will be a potluck event and as is tradition with Slow Food, the dish you make should be done with all (or nearly all!) local ingredients.

If you plan on attending this meeting, please r.s.v.p. via the commenting function of the blog or send an email to This will help us get a better sense of location for the event.

Happy Holidays to all and to all some good food!

Anson Mills Article in Free Times

Cheers to Anson Mills for the recent coverage in the Free Times.

Is South Carolina really the "secret" grits capital of the world, or has the secret been out for a while? For example, last month I was eating at a bar in NYC that only serves food one night a week called The Redhead and "Anson Mills cheese grits" were on the menu. We welcome your comments!
