Local, local, local. That's been the Slow Food message since its 1989 inception, when it turned the other cheek on the quickly snowballing mantra of a fast-food nation. The nonprofit has steadfastly labored to launch delegates from the local food community to the biennial Terra Madre conference in Italy, where they're indoctrinated with Earth Workshops: organic certification, indigenous agriculture and, most importantly, high-quality, environmentally sustainable food practices. Slow Food's month of fundraising culminates in AMUSE COCHON, a truly field-to-table endeavor featuring Kevin Rathbun of Rathbun Steak; Todd Mussman of Muss & Turner's; Jay Swift of 4th and Swift; the 5 Seasons Brewing team; and Allan Benton of Benton Smoky Mountain Country Hams. The culinary quintet will converge on 5 Seasons Brewing "Iron Chef" style Mon., SEPT. 29, to compete for best head-to-hoof preparation of the not-so-secret ingredient: a 60-pound heritage pig. Diners and judges – including Jeremy Lieb of Trois and Scott Peacock of Watershed – will decide the victor. 6 p.m. $60. RSVP required. 5600 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs. www.amusecochon.com.
