Slow Food Nations

Hi All, 

I just came back from a weekend in Denver with my SlowFood Community for SlowFood Nations.

If you've read the about me  page you'll see that SlowFood and the University of Gastronomic Sciences is  a big part of my life and my story and it was really special to get to be there for my Birthday! 

Here is a snippet from the SlowFood Nations website...if you missed it, check it out next year! The event is free with optional workshops and classes. 

"This July, Slow Food USA welcomed the world to Denver, Colorado for Slow Food Nations, a festival to taste and explore a world of good, clean and fair food for all. The weekend will combine the energy of a street food festival, the rigor of an academic conference, and the inspiration of a cultural exchange. Enjoy dozens of interactive workshops, delicious tastings, local tours, educational talks, and plenty of meals and parties. Slow Food Nations connects farmers and families, leaders and eaters to share our stories and shape the future of food."

 

 

One of the workshops we took part in was with a local Bagel Shop, Rosenberg bagels . They hosted a fantastic class on how to cure fish.  Their shop is a must see if you find yourself in Denver.
