Central Ohio Artisans at Slow Food Nation

September 1, 2008

Colleen will have details when she returns from Slow Food Nation in a few days, but in the interim I’ve noticed that Ohio artisans are already getting noticed by the livebloggers in San Francisco. Dawn Combs’ honey clearly impressed this visitor, among others:


In the Pavilions ($65 per person) I tasted many things produced brilliantly by slow food artisans in the United States:
Native Foods: Buffalo Stew
Pickles: Fiddleheads, Ramps, a lovely beet-stained egg, cumin green bean, okra, asparagus, and a Persian 7 year herb pickle.
Fish: four things
Charcuterie: seven things, including lardo
Wine: four ciders, a sparking mead, and a number of wines
Olive Oil: two Tuscan styles
Honey: three honeys, espresso-infused and ginger/garlic/lemon-infused honey from Marysvile, Ohio, and a delicious tiny honey/ rosewater/ pistachio cupcake from Citizen Cake
Cheese: three cheeses
Coffee: Three single varietals (Clover brewed and served with detailed descriptions of the farmers and origins), and a Brazilian single varietal espresso from a Santa Rosa roaster.
Beer: A brandywine
Bread: Four Indian flatbreads and chutney


… and Jeni Britton and her team are wowing visitors to the Ice Cream Pavilion [herehere]:

 I'm sure we’ll hear more soon, but I’m glad to be seeing them mentioned before the event is even over!
