Based on the Salone del Gusto, Slow Food’s international biennial event, Slow Food Nation is being planned for May 1-4, 2008 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, California.
Slow Food Nation’s aim is to bring people into a new relationship with food through a market of artisan products, tastings, demonstrations, films, and lectures. The Slow Food values of good, clean, and fair will be the guiding principles of Slow Food Nation, and programs will seek to dispel the myths that good food is expensive, that America lacks culinary traditions, and that good food is a privilege for the few.
Slow Food Nation promises to be an incredible social and gastronomic event, and we hope you’ll both mark your calendar and check back with us for more details as they become available. In the meantime, you can also visit the Slow Food Nation page of Slow Food USA’s site.
