Slow Food and the Nickelodeon are again partnering for the Slow Food at Indie Grits Sustainable Chefs Showcase, 4-7 p.m. April 14 at 711 Whaley.

The Slow Food community celebrates local, sustainable and seasonal foods and the act of actually slowing down in your daily life and coming together at the dinner table. The Sustainable Chefs Showcase will feature some of Columbia’s best farm-to-table restaurants in what promises to be an evening of fun and one-upmanship between the chefs.
