9th Annual Tomato Tasting and 1st Annual Slow Food KC BLT Challenge

We’ve been working hard the past  few months to get this year’s tasting and the new BLT Challenge sorted out, but I think we’re ready to roll now!

The tasting will be the same as always, at the Local Pig on August 5th at 9 a.m.  The event will be free, family friendly and open to the public.  All we ask is that you bring a tomato themed dish to share, labeled ripe tomatoes from your garden, or other side dishes you think folks would enjoy.

Last year we had over 200 attendees and a lot of tomatoes to taste!  We hope to fill the East Bottoms with tomato lovers on the first Saturday morning in August!

After the family friendly tomato tasting is over, we’ll have our first BLT Challenge!  This will be a Slow Food KC event and will be a fundraiser for Slow Food KC and the Veterans Community Project with proceeds going to help build and maintain therapy gardens for homeless veterans.

This event is open to adults and there is a $5 donation to submit your BLT to be judged.  There will be trophies for the top scoring varieties and each competitor will be entered into a  drawing for some fantastic prizes!

Judging will be for adults only as well and will require a $25 donation.  You may enter the competition and judge the competition as well.

100% of all donations will go to Slow Food KC and the Veterans Community Project to build and maintain therapy gardens for homeless veterans.

    Will BLTs be for sale for non-competitors? A host version w/ Local Pig bacon by chance?
