Healthy fats and Slow Food principles

Many thanks to Ms. Sally Fallon Morell for her thoughtful talk this past weekend, and for joining SFDC members and neighbors for the potluck that followed. It was a lovely and informative way to spend a Sunday afternoon. And I may or may not now be in possession of a signed copy of Nourishing Traditions….

If you missed the talk, you can meet the outspoken author and food activist at Slow Food DC’s 2nd annual Snail of Approval Awards dinner, coming up later this month. She’ll be there representing Snail Award winner, P.A. Bowen Farmstead. Get your tickets now!
