Slow Sips at Terra

Everyone is welcome to join us on the patio at Terra to see old friends, make new ones--and learn more about Slow Food. It's a free event, though Terra is creating a special cocktail and appetizer to showcase local ingredients--and will donate proceeds from your purchase to support Slow Food Columbia projects, including our Ark of Taste school garden.

We'll also have information on Slow Food's give-what-you-can membership drive, which allows you to join Slow Food USA on Saturday, September 15, with a donation of any amount.

Slow Food Columbia invites you to taste hyper-local dishes created by our community's most sustainable chefs! There's only one rule: Chefs must feature at least one locally, sustainably produced major ingredient in their dish. And you get to taste the results!

You'll have a chance to meet the chefs, who will be on hand to serve up small bites of their creations, and meet the farmers who grow food for us to enjoy around the table. Plus mingle with other locally-minded foodies and farm fans!

Cash bar with top-notch wines from Advintage and South Carolina beers. Live music.

Chef Travis Rayle of Hunter Gatherer
Chef Josh Rogerson of Saluda's
Chef Bryan Tayara of Rosewood Market and Deli
