The (S)low Down: The Slow Food NYC Annual Party

Critics' pick
The (S)low Down
Bill Telepan is the chef of the hour at Slow Food NYC's annual dinner bash. The farm-to-table pioneer will be honored with the organization's second annual Snailblazer Award, while guests will nosh on a whole roasted pig, provided by Dealamann Farm, and Montauk, NY–sourced raw oysters. For locavore tipplers, mixologists from Little Branch, Clover Club, and Death & Company will employ New York booze such as Breuckelen Distilling gin, Prohibition Distillery's Bootlegger 21 vodka and Brooklyn Brewery's Lager, Pennant and Irish Stout. After bidding at the silent auction on one-of-a-kind food adventures (like a private trip to the farmers’ market, or a cooking lesson with Telepan), continue the fun next door at 61 Local’s after-party with, sampling on-tap local pours as well as sweets from Brooklyn Farmacy and One Girl Cookies. Proceeds will support Slow Food NYC programs, including its Urban Harvest School and Youth Gardens programs.
