Meditrina Hosts Slow Food Benefit
The Ark of Taste is a "living catalog of delicious and distinctive foods" identified by Slow Food USA as facing extinction—some 1,100 from more than 50 countries, and 200 in the United States. According to Slow Food, "By identifying and championing these foods, we keep them in production and on our plates." On Sunday, Aug. 24, Jen Gilroy's Meditrina (1394 S. West Temple, Salt Lake City, will host a dinner to benefit Slow Food Utah featuring local and Ark of Taste foods. The menu includes an amuse-bouche followed by heirloom-tomato salad with Shepherd's chevre, lavender vinaigrette and basil oil; an entree of sorguhum-glazed Ballard Farms pork tenderloin with Utah corn, roasted turnips and cider-braised kale; and for dessert, Millcreek Chocolate vino torte and apricot chili preserves. The four-course dinner is $40 per person with optional wine pairings available for $30. RSVP by calling 801-485-2055.
