A lovey Sunday at the Glover Family Farm

posted on April 29, 2008 at 4:16 am
This past Sunday, I attended the “World food at the farm” event hosted by Slow Food Atlanta, Georgia Organics and the Glover Family Farm to raise money for “Slow Food Atlanta’s Terra Madre fund that helps Georgia’s small-scale sustainable farmers and artisinal producers to travel to Turin, Italy as delegates to the biennial Terra Madre conclave.”

Everyone did a spectacular job organizing the event and all of the participating chefs–from Woodfire Grill, Restaurant Eugene, Repast, The Hil, Sun in My Belly and Avalon Catering–churned out some tasty and soulful dishes. Such a great event and the turn out was amazing. Always nice to eat for a good cause!
