Slow Food Katy Trail's - Dinner on the River!

Starring heritage ingredients from Slow Food USA's "Ark of Taste" endangered foods list.

Sunday, Sept. 21, 4:00 (3:00 optional tour of the brewery, barrel room and new winery)

Les Bourgeois A-Frame
on the Missouri River Bluffs at Rocheport

This event is Slow Food Katy Trail's main fundraiser
for our Harvest-of-the-Month elementary-school program.

We loved having our annual fundraiser in Les Bourgeois' century-old tobacco barn for the last few years. Unfortunately, the barn (which had been losing a few pieces of its wooden walls to the wind every year) finally succumbed this past spring to the ravages of time. The folks at Les Bourgeois were again quick and generous to offer an option at another one of their scenic venues. We think you'll find this one, with its splendid blufftop river view, just as enjoyable. The food, of course, will be spectacular, as always.

A team of five local chefs, who are graciously donating their time and talents, will be cooking "on stage" in front of the river. They include Craig Cyr of the Wine Cellar & Bistro; Brook Harlan of the Columbia Area Career Center Culinary Arts program; Matt Robertson and Blaire DeVine of Les Bourgeois Blufftop Bistro; and Walker Claridge of Broadway Brewery.

Each chef will prepare a course that features something from Slow Food's Ark of Taste, a living catalog of delicious and distinctive foods facing extinction. By identifying and championing these foods, we keep them in production and on our plates.

Sharing the stage with the chefs will be The Third Switch, serving up an eclectic and lively musical menu of early blues, calypso, classic country and vintage jazz.
Because we want as many people to enjoy this event as possible,
we're offering several price levels (see below).

$85 for current Slow Food members $100 for non-members
