This Sunday, the Slow Food Des Moines group is hosting its 12th Annual All-Iowa Food Fest and “Competitive Potluck.”
So, first, what’s Slow Food?, you ask. Slow Food “link[s] the pleasures of the table with a commitment to protect the community, culture, knowledge and environment that make this pleasure possible.” The group’s motto is, “good, clean and fair food for all.”
An international movement with over 150,000 members in 150 countries, the considerably smaller Des Moines-area Slow Food group has been around for about 15 years.
Well, what about this Food Fest thing?
Previously open to Slow Food members only, this year the group is opening up the event to the food-loving public. We thought our readers might be interested in enjoying an end-of-summer gourmet picnic with like-minded local folks.
