Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work, and that all people should have access to this good and clean food.
Given the agriculture and culinary experiences in West Marin, slow food proponents should love the Point Reyes area and indeed they do. A huge Slow Food confab over Labor Day weekend will happen in San Francisco and two of the ten “slow journeys” will head to West Marin.
The Marin Creameries tour, which features cheese, oysters and wine (count me in!) is already sold out (oh no). As of this writing, the Mysterious Bolinas tour, which features the wonderful and quirky farms of Bolinas still has some room.
