It’s really exciting how much buzz there is about local food in Columbus at the moment: farmer’s markets, Edible Columbus, new restaurants committed to local sourcing like Skillet and Knead, field to table dinners and the cow to cone marketing at Jeni’s. We are lucky to live in an agricultural state and have so much wonderful fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy.

I attended some wonderful events during the week including the Market to Market Bike Ride, North Market Harvest Festival, A benefit dinner at Alana's and A Cow to Cone tour at Jeni's Ice Cream. Coincidentally our Slow Food Locavore Dinner at Otter Creek was also held during local foods week, so it really was a localicious week. As soon as I heard about the tour of Jeni's I called to book a spot and I am so glad that I did. This rare behind the scenes tour guided by Jeni was limited to twenty people (the reason became obvious as we squeezed into the kitchen and completely disrupted production) and had a wait-list of 50 plus.
