Philadelphia: February 28
New York: March 1
Chicago: March 7
Minneapolis: March 8
Los Angeles: March 13
Portland: March 14

Six adventurous chefs have agreed to create menus based on the unusual and delicious products of the Presidia. They will feature products selected by Slow Food for promotion through Presidia projects in France, Italy, Madagascar, Ecuador, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Ireland. In addition, rare American breeds like corriente cattle and Navajo Churro sheep will be featured on the menus, accompanied by the wines of Oltrepo Pavese.

A World of Presidia will be the American launch of Slow Food’s international projects to protect agricultural biodiversity. If you are near any of these six cities, we welcome you to savor this initiative!

The cost for members will be $80 (with member number and confirmation of membership status); $100 for nonmembers.
