SHIFT and Slow Food in the Tetons present: Slowtoberfest!

On Friday, Oct. 11, 2013 at Jackson’s Center for the Arts, Shift and Slow Food in the Tetons presented a vibrant, dynamic celebration of local food and drink in conjunction with Slow Food’s Slowtoberfest.

Food is the cornerstone of life, and sustainable food systems are a critical component of future viability. How does Jackson Hole, an isolated, high-altitude ecosystem with severe weather and a remarkably short growing season, create a sustainable food system?

Early in the evening, attendees feasted on home-grown foods paired with regional libations as part of Slow Food’s Slowtoberfest. While dining, they  took in demonstrations on everything from butchering to canning to composting. Once properly sated, they retired to the Center Theater, where a foodie film festival continued to enlighten and entertain.

Even intermission, complete with local desserts and libations, made for a fun evening.
