TABLE TALK: Chef Luciano Schipano on Slow Food

March 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Chef Luciano Schipano, President of Slow Food Toronto, will be talking about the principles at the heart of the Slow Food International movement, a key force in the global transformation of attitudes towards local and sustainable agriculture and culinary culture.

Slow Food began in Italy in 1986 to resist the opening of a McDonald’s in Rome. By 1989, the founding manifesto of the international Slow Food movement was signed by delegates from 15 countries. The Slow Food organization has since expanded to include over 100,000 members with branches in over 150 countries and 35,000 members. Luciano will discuss the vision, values and practices of Slow Food, in it’s birthplace of Italy, here in Canada, and around the world.
