Liberty Lake offers piece of the pie

WEDNESDAY, AUG. 8, 2007

Celebrate local food during the Pie in the Sky Carnival, which makes a stop in Liberty Lake next week.

The carnival is part of Sustainable Table’s Eat Well Guided Tour of America, which is promoting locally grown and produced foods at stops around the country this summer.

The carnival will focus on pie as a way to applaud local, seasonal fruits and the people who grow them, organizers say. (Besides, it’s an excuse to eat pie.)

Vendors will include The Scoop, White Box Pies, Four Corners Bakery, Green Bluff Growers and more. There will be live music, a pie crust-making demonstration, samples from area fruit vendors and a “pie walk” (same thing as a cake walk, but with pie, of course).

The Pie in the Sky Carnival runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at Pavillion Park in Liberty Lake.

The day before that, the Sustainable Table’s Eat Well tour makes a stop in Colton, Wash., for a tour of the Eaton Natural Beef Ranch. The tour is open to the public. Look for the details inside today’s Food section or log on to www.sustainabletable.org/roadtrip for more details.

Is that wine sustainable?

Pilgrim’s Market in Coeur d’Alene will host a tasting of wines made under sustainable growing practices Thursday. White and red wines will be paired with some of the foods from the natural market.

The event, which runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., is sponsored by Slow Food Spokane River and costs $20 for group members, $25 for nonmembers. E-mail sf.spokaneriver@gmail.com for reservations.

Just Natural Farm

An article in last week’s Food section featured Just Natural Farm, a sustainable farm in Colbert which sells fresh produce. But the contact information for the farm didn’t make it into the paper. So here it is: www.justnaturalfarm.com or (509) 276-1756.
