Terra Madre Raffle

Thanks to everyone who helped us kick off our Terra Madre 2008 fundraising efforts at Bar Cento last night! What a party! A special thank you to Chef Jonathon Sawyer, the staff of Bar Cento, and the unbelievable support of all the participating chefs who made this event a delicious success. The generosity and kindness of our chef community here in Cleveland is astounding and we are grateful!

You can re-live the Bastille Day feast at Fun Playing with Food, where Slow Food member, Nancy Heller has posted a buffet of photos from the event!
