Slow Food Chicago at NRA

  • McCormick Place 2301 South King Drive Chicago, IL, 60616 United States (map)

Slow Food Chicago has been invited by Bellavita (the largest Made-in-Italy Food & Wine Expo outside of Italy) to participate in their U.S. debut at the National Restaurant Association show this May. (Sort of fitting as Slow Food got it's start in Italy in the 1980's - don't you think?) Slow Food Chicago board member and Nico Osteria pasty chef, Leigh Omilinsky will be doing an Italian pastry demonstration and current Slow Food Chicago President, Cortney Ahern will host a discussion about Terre Madre. If you're going to be at the show, we hope you'll stop by and see us!
