Event Description
Slow Food Indy’s contribution to the 2010 Spirit and Place Festival themed “Food for Thought” is an extremely practical one. Do you know the difference between grass-fed and grass-finished? Heirloom and heritage? Organic and all-natural? Local and non-local? With the rise of the local and sustainable food movement, food terminology continues to be co-opted by large agri-business and food marketing experts. The aim of the evening is to help participants learn how to make wise, sound and ethical food choices and navigate complex and confusing marketing terminology.

The evening will be moderated by Tyler Henderson, Big City Farms and Indy Winter Farmers Market co-owner and will include local food experts talking about their particular area of food expertise: Chris Eley, chef-owner, Goose the Market (meat); John Egerton, culinarian (seafood); Todd Jameson, Balanced Harvest Farm owner (vegetable/fruit); Ed Stites, culinarian (coffee); and Tia Agnew, co-owner, New Day Meadery (alcohol). Presented by Slow Food Indy and Brown Family Farm.
