Slow Food Columbia proudly hosts Slow Food at Indie Grits to bring Columbia’’s sustainable food community together to celebrate the Slow Food motto of promoting Good, Clean and Fair foodways.

Each chef’s dish must feature at least one locally, sustainably produced major ingredient, and chefs really try to do outdo each other with innovation and quality. This fun, friendly party was a sold out success in 2011 and 2012, and it is sure to be a “don’t miss” event for foodies in 2013.
