Last Sips of Summer Party

Slow Food Katy Trail members Martha Folk, Ann Mehr and Sallee Purcell get ready to sample delectable appetizers at the Last Sips of Summer party in September 2008. Sixty Slow Food members and guests toasted the end of summer with fabulous drinks, hors d' oeuvres made from locally produced food and live jazz.

We've been too busy with fundraisers, our Slow Food in Schools project at Lee School and members' events to update our nascent blog,
but stay tuned--we'll catch up some day! Meanwhile, take a look at some delicious photos taken by Michael Stonacek, a photojournalism student who documented our Feb. 7 chocolate- and wine-tasting event at the Wine Cellar & Bistro.
