My First Slow Food Dinner

I recently became a member of a great organization called Slow Food that promotes the pleasures of the table as well as protecting the heritage and traditions of food. Please check out the link below to see if there is a local chapter where you live!
"Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 (In Itay) to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world."
