2Silos 3rd Annual Holiday Wine Party

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Adopt a Hen, Eating Local, Events, Holiday

I really wish I had taken pictures…I had a FABULOUS time last night at Denise’s (of 2Silos fame) wine party last night. I feel honored that she invited us, and am so glad that she did. In addition to feasting on homemade cheese, delicious chicken paprikash (Denise, I *want* that recipe ), muscovy duck, lamb, and much more, I got the opportunity to try tons of wine I would have never had the opportunity to otherwise, and met so many cool people, like Ginger, a jill-of-all-trades who in addition to growing garlic and horseradish, makes her own local vinegar, bakes amazing bread (trust me, I tried some!), and plans on teaching classes of all sorts at her farm in Morrow County. And then there was Vanessa and her husband, who raise organic turkeys and cows. And the lovely couple (I’m sorry I didn’t catch your names!) whose delicious duck I’ve tried already in many of my favorite restaurants. (Update: After a bit of research, I’ve discovered that the lovely couple is Dennis and Angela of Cota Farms in Cardington). I’m telling you folks, that party was a locavore’s heaven. :)

I can’t wait to communicate further with my newfound friends. If the knowledge and kindness and dedication to their work is representative of what our local food producers are like, I feel even better about my decision to try to eat as locally as possible.

Best of all, I got a chance to see Sweetie, my “adopted” hen. I’m going to miss all those eggs while I’m gone. I’m homesick already.

    I was really sorry we had to cancel out! The whole family came down with the flu bug and spent the weekend sick and miserable. Maybe next year!

    Gee, I'm sorry you didn't let me know…..I could have brought my own small goat herd's cheese that is local to Columbus. Want to adopt a goat???
