Tomorrow is the first day of summer! Each season has its charms, but summer is in the running to be the most delicious. We are looking forward to ripening berries, sunny picnics, and farm-fresh treats.

Here are some of the highlights of past/upcoming Slow Food events. Of special note (more details below...):

Upcoming Slow Food Seattle Events

Vote for your neighbors in the Slow Food Speakeasy contest!

Image via Booze NerdSlow Food USA is running a “Slow Food Speakeasy” contest, which asked entrants to create a cocktail focusing on Ark of Taste products and local ingredients.

And some of our Slow Food neighbors here in Seattle – Christa and Shaun over at Booze Nerds – have made it to the finals! They are one of twelve contests in the final running to win a trip to the Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto world meeting in Turin, Italy.

Please check out their recipe and vote for their “July 5th” cocktail that features Sound Spirits Ebb & Flow Gin, Dr. Pickett’s shrub, and more. Here’s more information on the Booze Nerds and their drinks.  To vote: click here and scroll down to the bottom left to vote.
 

Sign up for the Book Club email list!

If you love to read, and you love good food, consider joining our Slow Food Book Club. It's free, open to members and non-members, and focuses on food topics. We meet every other month on the second Thursday. Right now, our location isn't fixed, although if we get a majority of folks in one area, we can definitely discuss what's convenient.

Our next meeting is on July 10 to read Growing a Feast (see above). What will we read after that? You can help us decide! We'll read anything related to food: memoir, classics, policy, farm-focused, etc. We're going to start a specific list just for Book Club communications. Want to get on the list to learn about future book votes, etc.? Sign up here!


Urban Edible Plant Walk with “The Front Yard Forager”

Check out the slideshow from our May urban wild edibles walk with The Front Yard Forager Melany Vorass. It was an excellent afternoon of learning about delicious and nutritious urban weeds and wild plants. A new favorite from the walk: the fresh and spicy flavor of wild mustard.
