On Friday, October 11, at the Center for the Arts, SHIFT will debut with the foodie event of the year.
The evening of food, drink and film—a joint presentation of SHIFT and Slow Food in the Tetons—kicks off with Slow Foods’ Slowtoberfest, a celebration of local food and drink.
Jackson Hole chefs from Rendezvous Bistro, Bin22, Trio, Local, Il Villaggio Osteria, Spur, and the Snake River Grill will be collaborating to create seasonal plates made from ingredients sourced from local farmers, ranchers, bakers, and cheese makers.
Demonstrations on how to butcher a pig, roast a side of beef, pickle, can, and ferment the season’s harvest, make cheese and transform cheese curds into hand-pulled mozzarella will be conducted on the Center’s stage.
Lockhart Cattle Company, whose locally raised beef will be served during the evening, will raffle off a side of its hormone- and antibiotic-free beef. Raffle tickets are $5 for one ticket, or $10 for three.
Following the feast, films, including Murder Mouth, Vanishing of the Bees, The Story of an Egg, The End of the Line and Truck Farm will delight audiences with a foodie film festival.
In addition, Jackson architect Nona Yehia will present two short films that celebrate Vertical Harvest, the three-story vertical greenhouse that begins construction next spring.
Intermission includes a surprise dessert from Persephone Bakery, coupled with local spirits.
The $40 ticket price entitles participants to all food, demonstrations, dessert and films. Drink tickets are $5 each.
