Slow Food Utah selected Chef Instructor Adam Kreisel for this year’s prestigious Snail Award. The Snail Awards, launched in 2012, are a way the organization recognizes those who are ardent supporters and promoters of local, sustainably produced food. They are given to individuals and organizations whose philosophies and practices embody the values of the Slow Food movement — good, clean, fair food for all.

The awards are lifetime achievement awards intended to acknowledge long-standing commitment to the principals of Slow Food and to dedication to food education and food-related causes. This year, the recipients were Chef Adam Kreisel, Pete Rasmussen of Sandhill Farms (as Farmer/Producer), and John and Casey Francis of Amour Spreads (as Community Leader/Local Business).
