Slow Food NOLA has a new little sister
Wait a minute.
Don't go so fast.
Join the Slow Food movement.
Slow Food of North Louisiana will hold its first chapter meeting — or convivium — from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, 3015 Greenwood Road in Shreveport. Convivium means "to live with, hence to feast with because conviviality is an essential ingredient of Slow Food."
The "Southern Supper" first session will introduce locals to the organization.
So what is slow food?
"Part of a growing national and international movement to foster awareness about the foods we eat and provide an opportunity to share local food customs and traditions," said convivium leader Becky Craft.
