Thank heaven for food spies.
Slow Foodie-about-town Valerie Paxton was at FnB last night for a special fundraising dinner for local Slow Food advocate Natalie Morris, who's about to head to Italy to get her master's in food culture and communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences. Paxton took lots of great shots of the dinner, which she's graciously shared with Chow Bella readers. (Thanks, Val!)

Happy revelers at the counter. Notice how they cleaned their plates?
