Delegate Registration for Slow Food Nations is now open. Before the Slow Food Festival opens to the general public on July 15 in Denver, CO, 400 delegates from around the world will meet for a summit of delegates on July 14. Delegates meet with each other, connect, discuss the needs in their countries, and “shape the future of Slow Food.” Delegate tickets are $200 for Slow Food members and $25o for others, but scholarships might be available based on need.
Conference leaders write, “We are currently seeking funds for scholarships to assist limited resource individuals to attend as delegates who represent youth, First Nations, advocates of color, and the Ark of Taste. For more information, please email email@example.com.”

Euro Gusto & Terra Madre Young Europeans
An opportunity to rethink the future of food in Europe.
France – This new international Slow Food event is being held from November 27 to 30 in Tours, in the heart of the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
At Euro Gusto you will find a host of attractions…
– The French and European market presenting hundreds of producers of high quality artisan food, selected according to Slow Food principles of good, clean and fair. (more…)
It is unfortunate that often the best foods cost the most–if you buy them in the city, that is. If you grow your own, its affordable to eat quail eggs.
In season local fruits are frugal.
Work like a peasant, eat like a king.
It is with these sentiments that we present an event that showcases the peasant kings, the king peasants, and the finest foods in the nation.
Gastronomes, groupies, giggling girlie Zinfandelites and galloping sausage beer boy types— come one come all to the fantastic, slightly spastic, oh so ambitious project of Slow Food USA.
This August, for labor day, join us in San Francisco, the glitter by the bay. SLow FOod Nation.
