Slow Food Utah’s Feast of Five Senses

Reviewed by Becky

In the name of good taste and to support Slow Food Utah’s Micro-grant Fund, eight 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 Slow Food Utah’s wide range of programs. The 8th Annual Feast of Five Senses will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at the Alta Club, 100 E. South Temple in Salt Lake City.

Feast makers for 2012 include:
Kassie Little of Liberty Heights Fresh
Greg Neville of Lügano
Ethan Lappe of Café Niche
Nathan Powers of Bambara
Phelix Gardner of Finca
Brian Edwards of the Alta Club
Amber Billingsley of Vinto
Romina Rasmussen of Les Madeleines
Uinta Beer will offer pairings
Francis Fecteau of Libation LLC will be pairing a wine with each course

Tickets are available online at 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. 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 their 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 and community gardens, Utahns Against Hunger’s Real Food Rising program and has helped small farmers build greenhouses and barns, purchase a tractor, and expand their livestock operations.

In addition to the restaurants and chefs, Sysco is also a proud sponsor of this year’s Feast.
