Slow Food Snail Awards
Since 2012, Slow Food Utah has upheld its annual tradition of honoring some of the community’s most ardent supporters of the group’s mission. The awards – called the 2019 Snail Awards – were presented to the following honorees at Slow Food Utah’s recent Feast of the Five Senses banquet:
Community Leader: Alison Einerson, founder and director of Urban Food Connections of Utah, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the community about local food, regional food producers and Utah’s proud agricultural heritage.
Farmer/Producer: Tyler Montague and Holiday Dalgleish, operators of Keep It Real Vegetables. Montague and Dalgleish specialize in unique, heirloom varieties of vegetables, including many on the Slow Food Ark of Taste—varieties that are often in danger of disappearing but for committed growers like them.
Restaurant/Chef: Philip Grubisa, owner of Beltex Meats. Grubisa became interested in charcuterie, butchering and curing meats while working at the Spruce Restaurant (Park City). In 2014 he began selling his own meat products at area farmers markets. This led to opening Beltex Meats, just north of Liberty Park—a whole-animal, nose-to-tail butcher shop that uses humanely raised and locally sourced natural meat.
Monday Motivation @ Fleming’s
There’s always a good excuse to visit Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, where Operating Partner Rick Paz and Chef Partner Jeremiah Hester serve up some of the best meals to be found around town, accompanied by one of the best wine lists, as well. That includes 100 wines available by the glass.
Well, here’s another reason to set your GPS for Fleming’s at The Gateway: Monday Motivation. On Mondays only, guests can enjoy surf & turf: a Prime beef filet & lobster 3-course menu for $50, including salad and dessert.
