Taste of Slow Food San Diego This Saturday

Just a brief hello. With my back out for a week I've only recently been able to sit in front of my computer for a few minutes at a time. But I'm getting better (and so sick of the Olympics -- in a drug-induced haze I've probably watched every obscure event aired; right now, I'm fleeing rhythmic gymnastics.).

Assuming I'm relatively painfree I intend to go to the 5th Annual Taste of Slow Food San Diego this Saturday night in Old Town. And, I encourage you buy a ticket and attend. And say hi!

Just in case you aren't on the Slow Food San Diego mailing list and have missed their many communications about this event, here are the details:

The dinner will be at the main plaza in Old Town San Diego Historic State Park on Saturday, August 23, from 5 to 9 p.m. You'll find a wealth of food stations that feature fresh, local, seasonal organic produce, artisan meats and cheeses. The chefs involved include Bernard Guillas of the Marine Room, Tom McAliney of Brandt Beef, KAtie Grebow of Cafe Chloe, Jeff Massey of Stone Brew World Bistro & Gardens, Starlight's Margarite Griftka, Javier Plascencia of Restaurante Romesco, Berta Utreas of Berta's, Currant's Geoffrey Yan and so many more. The dishes you'll taste will have been inspired by the food cultures of early San Diego.

They'll also have local breweries and wineries, and local purveyors and farmers.

Tickets are $65 and two glasses of beer or wine are included in the price. Proceeds will benefit projects of Slow Food San Diego and the Old Town San Diego Historic State Park.

Some tickets are still available for purchase online.

I'm hoping to be back up and moving around more tomorrow and back at the markets this weekend!
