Announcing the Spring 2012 Snail of Approval Awards!

On April 17, Slow Food Sacramento announced the latest honorees of the “Snail of Approval” program. The Snail of Approval program recognizes local businesses that contribute to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of food in the community.

This year, Slow Food Sacramento introduced two new award categories: Producers and Supporters. Past awards were conferred on restaurants offering menu items that meet the Slow Food mission of good (authentic flavor), clean (grown so it does not harm the environment) and fair (food producers receive fair compensation). In response to the growing interest by auxiliary food businesses and organizations, the new Producer category recognizes businesses producing locally unique and sustainable foods. The new Supporter category acknowledges organizations that encourage sustainable business practices in the food community.  

The restaurants receiving the Snail of Approval are:

  • Spataro Restaurant and Bar
  • Paragary’s Bar and Oven
  • Esquire Grill
  • Centro Cocina Mexicana
  • Juno’s Kitchen and Delicatessen

 Awardees in the Producer category are:

  • Soil Born Farms
  • Devine Gelateria
  • Del Rio Botanicals
  • Revolution Wines

 Awardees in the Supporter category are:

  • Edible Pedal
  • Green Restaurant Alliance of Sacramento
  • Produce Express

 “Sacramento is at the forefront of a national movement of consumers and businesses embracing locally grown, sustainable foods. This is our way of recognizing and honoring the businesses in our region that focus on good, clean, and fair food,” says Karen Auwaerter, president of Slow Food Sacramento.
