Slow Food Dinner at Revolver Restaurant

Since SFMV was launched two years ago, we've enjoyed great food and conviviality, and we've done it on a budget accessible to everyone. Many events, like our Strawberry Celebration last Saturday, have been free, as well as informative and delicious.

Our June event is a splurge: a trip to Revolver Restaurant in Findlay. We're privileged to have such a restaurant right in our backyard, and I'm sure that the splurge will be worth it. I've just spoken with chef/owner Michael Bulkowski, and he's planning a great meal for us including Lake Erie perch or walleye, chicken from Dickman Farms, local strawberries, and local vegetables like heirloom beans, spring peas, and carrots. In addition to great food, we will hear from Michael about his restaurant, and we'll meet one of his suppliers - Russ Chester of Garden Spirit Farm in Mt Blanchard.

The cost for this event is $75 for SFMV members; $100 for non-members. As always, become a member here. Reservations a must: RSVP to

The Berries

It was all about the berries at Saturday's Strawberry Celebration, but many of us could not resist the jams - made by SFMV member Amelia Contreras for Johnston's Fruit Farm. Click on the photo to check out the short list of ingredients!
