Slow Food USA seeks to create dramatic and lasting change in the food system. We reconnect Americans with the people, traditions, plants, animals, fertile soils and waters that produce our food. We inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat.
Slow Food is a new trend, taking the nation’s foodies and local activists by storm. In an effort to celebrate food, Slow Food has developed in various towns and urban cities to connect individuals with their local economy and ecology.
In late October, DC Slow Foods headed to Roseda for a dinner. Members enjoyed a hayride and tour of the Roseda Farm. The members than enjoyed a barn dinner. Mike Brannon prepared a top round roast that was to die for. Hours went into preparation of the meal. Check out this blog for the recipe. Cooked on coals, in a deep pit, wrapped in burlap, and seasoned—it was a great dish. Attendees enjoyed a great fall day, great food, and the chance to reconnect with the tradition of communing around food. For more information about DC Slow Food, click here.
