Caviar, Vodka, and a stroll in the garden

Thanks to all who tipped a class and rolled blini during Slow Food Indy's Local Caviar & Vodka Tasting at R Bistro yesterday.

Neal and Lindy Brown were behind the bar mixing new cocktails--like the tart "embarcadero" and the sweet "dying breed"--with local Heartland Vodka made at Indiana's first distillery since prohibition.

John Egerton wooed the good folks at Collins Caviar and Shuckman's Fish Co. to share delicious caviar like Chinook Salmon and Bowfin. The bright eggs topped loads of blini and Blue Point oysters not 48 hours from the water.

After drinks and tastes, Tyler and Laura Henderson led folks to the new kitchen garden they helped install next to R Bistro. Spouts from the fennel, carrots, greens, and beats were already up.

To check out more photos from the event, watch the SFI flickr group as folks add their images to the collection. And save the date for SFI's next event on Sunday, May 31, at Seven Springs Farm. We'll tour Luella's biodynamic farm and share a pitch-in picnic.
