Slow Food USA Town Hall Meeting with Alice Waters and Dan Barber
A 60 minute national telephone conversation to kick-off the 2015 September Slow Food membership campaign. They will explore questions about the future of food, like: What efforts inspire you? Has, as Dan Barber contends, the farm-to-table movement run its course? Are there deeper goals for farmers to join forces with chefs? What about soil? Technology? Beauty? Do these desires and concerns inform and inspire us in a nation with a growing appetite for edible education?
