Event

Slow Food St. Louis - Art of Food 2011
The Art of Food event serves up a variety of hors d'oeuvres prepared with locally-produced food by twenty of St. Louis' favorite "slow" chefs, live music, food related art, and an expansive silent auction with many culinary experiences and treats.  Art of Food is Slow Food St. Louis' annual fundraiser.

Currently, the culinary line-up is: Chris Williams (Franco), Josh Allen (Companion), Tim Grandinetti (Overlook Farm), Steve Caravelli (Pi), Tyler Zimmer (Kaldi's Coffee), Clara Moore (Local Harvest Cafe), Kevin Willmann (Farmhaus), Brian Pelletier (Kakao Chocolate), John Perkins, (Entre Underground), Mark Sanfilippo and Ben Poremba (Salume Beddu), Vito Racanelli (Mad Tomato), Michelle Blodget (Maude's Market), Kevin Nashan (Sidney Street Cafe), Jim Fiala (The Crossing), Nick Miller (Harvest), Cary McDowell (Winslow's Home), Rob Uyemura (Yia Yia's Euro Bistro), Gerard Craft (Niche), Cassandra Vires (Home Wine Kitchen), and Christopher Lee (Sanctuaria).

We are making a few changes to the event this year, which include a new location at Koken Art Factory, the addition of live music and more chefs.  We are also producing a short film depicting our micro-grant program and its impact on our local food loop, which will debut during the event.

The funds we raise through Art of Food go to support our programming which includes over forty events annually.  Primarily these events are educational in nature and connect people with the food they eat, how it was produced and where it comes from.  The majority of our funding, however, goes to our Biodiversity Micro-Grant Program that has granted almost $20,000 in the past three years to local, sustainable farmers for growing more than 200 different heirloom varieties of produce and heritage breeds of animals.  In addition to creating a more biodiverse food system for St. Louis, our grants help eliminate the financial risk inherent in a new project and, in success, help to create niche products for farmers ultimately distinguishing their businesses.
