Thanks to all who turned out for LocavoraCinciPalooza at the Mercantile Library on Monday! It was a terrific event, with what I estimated to be at least 100 people in attendance for the panel discussion (moderated by founder and board chair for The Corporation for Findlay Market Mary Stagaman) among Chef Jono Fries of Boca Restaurant Group, Cincinnati Magazine food writer Donna Covrett (who is very chic, btw), Wine Advocate writer David Schildknecht, Turner Farms Garden Manager Melinda O'Briant, and yours truly. The discussion, which focussed on questions surrounding the local foods movement, was part of the Merc's Hearth and Home series.

Sincere thanks to the Merc for setting up this event, and to Mary Stagaman who had clearly done a lot of work in preparation.
