Food Fest: A Slow Food Des Moines Tradition

Slow-food-summer-potluckAll of you longtime Slow Food supporters are probably wondering when we are going to announce plans for our 12th annual Food Fest and Potluck Cooking Competition.

Consider this your notice to save the date!

This year we are switching party plans up a bit:  we’ll be our Annual Summer Gathering on Sunday, September 8th, at Jasper Winery. (We want to give Neil and Kahn our heartfelt thanks for the many years of hosting — and give them a break from host duties this year).

Competition, you say? Why, yes. The potluck will still have all the favorite old cooking competition categories — along with a few new ones.

2013 Summer Potluck Competition Categories are:

  • Pie-Making (Sweet & Savory)
  • Baked Beans
  • Vegetable Dish (cold)
  • Vegetable Dish (hot)
  • Deviled Eggs
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Cookies

Break out those recipes, run to the farmer’s market and get your test kitchen cooking on.

More details will follow soon!
