Public Sales Begin – Slow Food St. Louis Feast in the Field at Claverach Farm and Vineyard Sunday, June 26, 2011
Starting today, sales are now open to the general public for Slow Food St. Louis’s Feast in the Field at Claverach Farm and Vineyard. Tickets are capped at two per person except for Slow Food USA Members who can now purchase as many tickets as they’d like. (Don’t forget, you can sign up at www.slowfoodusa.com now and we’ll send you the code if you let us know).
This year’s Slow Food St. Louis Feast in the Field will take place at Claverach Farm and Vineyard on Sunday, June 26th between approximately 3-??? in Claverach’s barn which has recently been repurposed into a beautiful three-season event space complete with bathroom facilities. (an email to ticket holders will be sent closer to the event with directions and final times).
As with our previous Feast in the Field, Lambstravaganza, the meal will be cooked for approximately 100 people but where that meal was Lamb-centric including lamb in almost every course, this one, while not exclusively vegetarian, will be centered around the bounty of vegetables Claverach grows.
We have confirmation from the rest of our chefs, and the current lineup is an outstanding display of Slow Food St. Louis supporters including…
- Josh Galliano – Monarch
- Christy Augustin – Le Cordon Bleu
- Carl McConnell – Stone Soup Cottage
- Chuck Friedhoff – Persimmon Woods
- Tim Grandinetti – Overlook Farm
- Anthony Devoti – Five Bistro
- Nick Miller – Harvest
- Cary McDowell – Winslow’s Home
- Steven Caravelli – Araka
- Vito Racanelli – Onesto and The Mad Tomato
- Jamey Tochtrop – Stellina
- Rob Uyemura – Yia Yia’s
- John Perkins – Entre Underground
- Jimmy Fiala, Matt Abeshouse, Jon Olson – The Crossing, Terrace View, Liluma and Acero
- Chris Bolyard – Sidney Street Cafe
- Adam Altnether – Taste by Niche
- Clara Moore – Local Harvest Cafe
The meal itself will consist of a multi-course veg-centric (but not vegetarian) meal. Beer (for sure Schlafly and possibly one more) and Claverach Vineyard Wines will be available, but as this is a new event, and not an outright replacement, feel free to BYOB if there’s something you’d love to enjoy on this special occasion.
Tickets are available to Members of Slow Food St. Louis for the first week through Brown Paper Tickets for $100, and to Friends of Slow Food St. Louis (the general public) following that for $125. In fairness to everyone for the first week, there is a limit of two tickets per Slow Food Membership. After that, however, Slow Food Members may purchase as many tickets as they’d like.
If you’re not a member, join now at slowfoodusa.com, and let Bill Burge know, and we’ll send along the discount code. At only $25 for the base membership, it’s almost like getting paid to join Slow Food St. Louis!
