Marathon-related traffic and imminent hurricane and unreliable public transportation notwithstanding, DC-area food lovers came together last Sunday to enjoy — and celebrate! — some of the best food and drink our region has to offer. What better way to honor this year’s Snail of Approval winners?
This year, we skipped the long speeches and got right to the good stuff. I’m talking about raw oysters and savory pork belly buns and artisanal cocktails. There were a few words from Board members, but the focus was as it should be: on the food, and meeting the dynamic and dedicated people that work at bringing us good, clean, and fair food every day. As we nibbled and sipped, we had a chance to mingle and chat with farmers, chefs, culinary artisans, brewers, butchers, restaurant owners, farmers’ market directors, and others from DC, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia who have chosen to devote themselves to producing and promoting the food and drink that Slow Food DC is all about.
Congratulations to the 2012 Snail of Approval award winners — here’s wishing you continued success!
