Slow food

If you read Sue’s story on eating local, you might be wondering: How do I join the Slow Food movement?

It’s easy!

Go to www.slowfoodusa.org and read the page, then click to join. Where it asks for Convivia (yes, a bit precious), put Harrisburg. The Harrisburg chapter isn’t quite together yet, but Curtis Vreeland of Shipoke is assembling a crack team of organizers and it’s all coming together very s-l-o-w-l-y. Appropriate, huh?

Anyway, I queried Slow Food and even though Hbg isn’t listed, it’s okay.

The first dinner will be …

in January at HACC, thanks to the interest in local foods of associate dean Linda Lefevre, Chef Michael Finch and Chef Jim Switzenberg. It will be a Meet the Producer theme focusing on Pennsylvania’s artisanal cheeses.

Besides members, we need a person knowledgeable in accounting to serve as treasurer, and a good writer willing to do public relations. Email me if you’re interested, and I’ll pass it on to Curtis.

In culinary school and getting ready to trade the writing life for the cooking life. Or not. Might do both. At the moment I'm a feature writer for The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. My name is Pat Carroll.
