The Gourmet Club Takes It Slow

In one month, Labor Day weekend (that's August 29 to Sept. 1), Slow Food Nation will be foodie central in San Francisco. With a farmers market and urban "Victory" garden, Taste Pavilions showcasing the wares of producers across the nation, lectures, guided slow hikes, special slow dinners and even a Slow Food Rocks concert, Slow Food Nation will be an incomparable experience.

So, we're bringing in Anya Fernald, Slow Food Nation's executive director, to talk about what we can expect. Should San Diegans make the trek up to celebrate? You bet! I'll be among them and can't wait to share the experience.

We'll also be talking about summer puddings and the pros and cons of air-chilled chicken. Does it really taste better than the usual poultry found in the stores? I did a taste test and will let you know if it's worth the extra price.

The Gourmet Club is the tastiest meeting in town. Join Robert Whitley, Maureen Clancy and me for our regular Wednesday morning gathering on signonradio.com from 11 a.m. to noon Pacific. You can also podcast the show and listen at your convenience.
