Slow Food Nation Photos


I’m stuck between a food coma and a philosophical mind meld after spending part of the weekend at Slow Food Nation ’08 in San Francisco. Not surprisingly lots of locals were represented at the events including (and this is hardly comprehensive) Cowgirl Creamery, Ecco Caffe, Medlock Ames, many Mendocino Wineries, Nana Mae Organics, Valley End Farms and on and on.

I’m drinking from the well, Slow Foodies, so stay tuned for more. But before I head out for a sparkling wine-filled day in Wine Country, check out some of my favorite photos from the weekend, both from a stroll through the Victory Gardens near City Hall (with an incredible Slow Foods market) and from the Taste Pavillions — a tasting experience like no other. Sante!
