Swampkitty has posted an amazing spread of photos on Flickr from the Taste of the Independents event that took place on Thursday. Below are 10 highlights from the set including sea scallops from The Refectory, octopus with Israeli caviar from Alana’s, lamb sliders from The Clarmont, lamb sirloin with sweet pea and mint pesto from Basi Italia, tomato and goat cheese bruschetta from Tutto Vino, shrimp and grits from G. Michael’s, and spicy green pea shooters from The Banana Bean Cafe.

    If anyone who missed out wants to go to a very similar event this week, The North Market Apron Gala is on Saturday night! :D It’s also a fundraiser, same entry fee, and all-you-can-eat-and-drink private party afterhours at the North Market! Fun!

    I’ve got tickets to sell. Send me an email at walkerevans@columbusunderground.com if interested!

    Event: Taste of the Independents 2009
    Author: swampkitty05

    May is definitely a busy month for foodies, with several events all taking place within days of each other. The first of these we attended was last Thursday’s Taste of the Independents, an annual fundraiser that benefits Dine Originals Columbus. We were lucky enough to attend last year, so we’ve been looking forward to it for months now.
