Slow Food Conference Miami 2009

What do you call a cow on a unicycle, a pig stuck in rush hour, or a potato calling an insurance company? Slow food.

Others seem to think the term refers to an internationally renowned "member supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life."

Either way, on Wednesday, October 28th at Coverings Showroom (7610 NE 4th Ct), Slow Food Miami invites eighty folks (tix limited) to get together for a farm to table feast presented by Kris Wessel of Red Light Little River.

Tickets are $60 for an all inclusive experience that includes grass fed beef, and game grazing tables, a local seafood station, a smoker, a grain and vegetable station, a raw Florida fruit station, and a pie station. Diners will get to meet and interact with some of the growers directly responsible for the production of what they're eating.

Here's the full menu...
