Slow Food Chicago

A Book Reading with Chef/Author Kurt Friese  

   

 

Slow Food Chicago members and friends are invited to hear Slow Food USA Board Member Kurt Friese read from and sign his new book A Cook’s Journey: Slow Food in the Heartland.  Kurt will talk about the many Slow Food role models here in the Midwest, followed by a Q&A.

A chef by training, and owner of Devotay restaurant in Iowa City, Kurt will discuss how gardening, restaurants, schools– everyone– can be part of the Slow Food movement.
.
Bring yourself and your friends to hear why Michael Pollan said of this new book, “Chef Kurt Michael Friese has written a terrific introduction to the theory and practice of Slow Food.”

After the reading, The Book Cellar will hold a free raffle of gift certificates to two Lincoln Square food establishments featured in the book.
