I just found the website for Slow Food Minnesota, my local chapter of Slow Food USA. I’ve been familiar with the Slow Food movement for a while but had never bothered to look up any information about the local group that I vaguely knew about.
The local group’s event list definitely trends towards highbrow cuisine at some of the nicer restaurants in town, which may not be what some people are looking for, but they do focus on local food, which is a good thing.
The local chapter also has some interesting links for local food producers and purveyors.
Worth a look, especially if you’re in the Twin Cities area. I wonder if they’d be interested in a tightwadder’s potluck event…
