Don't miss Slow Food Nation

Celebrate good eats this summer in San Francisco

It's a wonderland for food-loving grown-ups and kids alike: "Slow Food Nation", the first event of its kind in America.

Inspired by the ground-breaking Slow Food events of Italy, which promote the preservation of traditional foods and food production, the four-day San Francisco festival will have handmade street snacks, an artisanal foods market, a huge edible garden, film screenings, a tasting pavilion (cheeses, chocolates, cured meats, etc.), farm trips, and much, much more.

INFO: Fees vary; Aug 29–-Sep 1, 2008; 415/369-9950.
