Slow Food for Thought...

“Defending the earth means safeguarding biodiversity, the landscape and farming. Those who haven’t seen the importance of farming haven’t understood anything!”

Page-to-Plate Potluck

The June 1st New York Times Sunday Book Review included a fresh crop of cookbooks just in time for summer cooking and grilling. Inspired, we thought of the perfect event to kick off a Slow summer in Northeast Ohio, our first-ever Page-to-Plate Potluck.

We know that many of you share a love of cookbooks, cooking and eating. So, let’s get together and share what we love – delicious food, great company, and the books that inspire us.

We’ll meet at the home of Fred & Linda Griffith, Slow Food Northern Ohio convivium leaders, on Sunday, June 29 from 6-8pm.

Please bring a dish to share; the cookbook or book that inspired the dish; and the beverage of your choice, it’s BYOB.

We’ll visit, peruse cookbooks, and of course, eat! Fred & Linda will provide smoked brisket and the grill will be available if anyone needs it.

Date: Sunday, June 29
Time: 6:00-8:00pm
Place: Fred & Linda Griffith’s home in Pepper Pike. Directions provided upon rsvp.

To RSVP, please email Linda at or call 216.378.9307.
Space is limited so please RSVP as soon as possible.

Hope to see you there!
