Slow Food Nation Photos - San Francisco 2008
The public tastings kicked off on Friday, August 29 as visitors meandered through the Victory Garden at Civic Center, sampling the wares of marketplace farmers and vendors.
Slow Food Nation, created by chef Alice Waters (of Chez Panisse) celebrates the beauty and the benefits of slow food -- of eating regional produce, organic meats, whole grains breads, raw-milk cheese, bottle-fermented beer, and locally-produced honey.
The event takes place at several venues, with Taste Pavilions at Fort Mason and a Marketplace and Victory Garden at Civic Center. Additional events such as lectures and slow food hikes are scattered around the Bay Area.
These photos were taken on the first day at Civic Center Marketplace, and at the preview evening of the Taste Pavilions at Fort Mason.
