LAST CHANCE! Lambstravaganza V – Sunday, June 6th, 2010

June 2nd, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Announcement, Event


To say we’re shocked that tickets still remain is an understatement.  But for those of you that felt you might have missed your oppurtunity there are still a handfull of tickets left.  We’re not raising prices above the non-member $99.99 price, and there are no longer limits to the number of tickets you can buy.

In other words: If you’re a Slow Food member that wants a couple more–buy them.  If you want to take ten of your closest friends with you, buy 11 tickets.  We just want to see every chair filled for one of our best events of the year.
Slow Food St. Louis is pleased to invite non-members to the 5th Annual Lambstravaganza – a special meal in New Florence, MO celebrating Dave and Barb Hillebrand and the lamb they produce at Prairie Grass Farms.  Only a handful of tickets remain after our membership sales, so buy quick before they’re gone, or prices increase.
Presented by Slow Food St. Louis, Lambstravaganza is a multi-course dinner impeccably prepared for the fifth year running by James Beard Nominee Chef Joshua Galliano of Monarch Restaurant. This year Chef Galliano has invited some of the top chefs in St. Louis: Steve Caraveli (SLeek), James Beard Short List Nominee Gerard Craft (Niche), Anthony Devoti (Five), Kevin Nashan (Sidney Street Cafe), John Perkins (Entre Underground), Rob Uyemura (Yia Yia’s), and Kevin Willmann (Farmhaus). Along with an abundance of Missouri products, the family-style meal will feature grass-fed lamb and free-range eggs produced by our hosts at Prairie Grass Farms, Dave and Barb Hillebrand. Beer will be available courtesy of Schlafly Beer, and we are working on finalizing wine pairings with les Bourgeois Winery.

The event will take place approximately one and a half hours from St. Louis at Prairie Grass Farms in New Florence, MO.  We encourage guests to arrive early for small talk and snacks at 2:00PM.  A walking tour of the farm with Dave Hillebrand will commence at 3:00PM, and dinner will begin at approximately 4:00PM.  As slow food takes time to serve and enjoy, the ending time of the event is open.

Proceeds from the event will be used to support Slow Food St. Louis’ Micro Grant program.  Started in 2009, the program has given more than $12,000 to area farmers to encourage them to produce heirloom and heritage vegetables and livestock.  It is our hope that by taking on a share of the financial burden farmers are faced with by subsidizing the purchase of the necessary seed, livestock or equipment, that we can foster biodiversity to both maintain and enrich our region’s agricultural heritage.

You can find more information about our Micro Grant program on our website: www.slowfoodstl.org

Please note: Although dinner takes place under the cover of a three-sided barn, this is ultimately an outdoor event, and will take place rain or shine.
