HOLLOW LEG joined Slow Food Chicago for their annual get together on Sunday 14 September to enjoy an afternoon of eating, sipping, learning and meeting other people who care about good, clean, fair food in Chicago.

Scrumptious Pantry's Lee and Devin, both are US delegates for this year's Terra Madre in Italy.

The event was held at The Plant, Chicago’s first off-the-grid vertical farm and artisanal food business incubator.

HOLLOW LEG created a special cocktail for the occasion, all made from local ingredients. The Stinger was a crowd pleaser, with both humans and yellow jackets alike! As a matter of fact, it was dubbed "The Stinger" because we had to avoid getting stung by the many bees who flocked to the punch bowl!

Made with fresh pressed grape juice from two types of Concord grapes ("Fredonia" Early Concords from Mick Klug and Concord grapes from Leaning Shed), blueberry lavender syrup made from Ellis Family Farm blueberries and Smits Farms lavender, FEW Gin, and topped with edible Nasturtium from Growing Power, the cocktail was sweet, tangy, aromatic, and had a lovely gin punch! The cocktail was topped off with a little club soda for some sparkle!

An unlikely garnish: A yellow jacket!

We had a great time meeting others, serving drinks, and enjoying the beautiful day! Devin's excited to attend Terra Madre this October and see some of the folks she met again.
