Those paying attention will remember we told you to keep October the 18th open. If you’ve kept the evening clear (I know, I know, just DVR The Walking Dead you guys) you should consider spending the night with the good folks at Slow Food Utah, for their 11th annual Feast Of The Five Senses.
The fundraising event features some of the tip-toppest of kitchen talent, producing dishes with some of the best and brightest product available (see pics from last year below). This year’s event is already shaping up quite pleasantly with the following list of chef’s earmarked for this years event:
Bowman Brown of Forage
Logen Crew of Current
Romina Rasmussen of Les Madeleines
Jerry Liedtke of Tin Angel
Emily Gassmann of Em’s
Amber Billingsley of 3 Cups
Jennifer Gilroy of Porch
Tyler Stokes of Provisions
Wendy Robinson of Liberty Heights Fresh
Elisabeth LaFond of Bon Appetit
The best in the business of bites will be bolstered by the finest in the booze biz too; wines are provided and poured courtesy of Francis Fecteau’s Libation LLC and those in the mood for beer can look forward to Uinta Brewing filling their glass. The evening kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and usually begins with a few passed appetizers, a glass or two of something special and a silent auction.
Proceeds from the Feast Of Five Senses goes towards Slow Food Utah’s “micro-grant program, supporting small farmers, school and community gardens, and food artisans, helping to build a strong and vibrant local food community that sustains and enriches us all“.
Cost for the dinner is $125 for food and $25 for the optional wine pairing; Slow Food members also receive a $25 discount on dinner. The Jewett Center for the Performing Arts at Westminster College is this gracious host for the event and tickets can be purchased online at http://slowfoodutah.org/programs/feast-of-five-senses/.
Still on the fence? Here are some shots from the 2014 event, held at Memorial House:

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
