Mary Morgan Slow FoodWhy I joined Slow Food:
I first heard about the idea of “slow food” nine years ago when my husband Tom came home after meeting with Ted Conklin and some members of Slow Food USA at the American Hotel. At first I thought “ok, slow cooking, I know about that” but when I realized it was a growing international food movement to keep small farmers farming, encourage restaurants to source locally, start farmers markets, help schools begin “edible gardens” and sing the praises of local food, and that we could start our own chapter, right here! I was hooked. I love that our local chapter is helping keep the north and south forks “green”, and I’m meeting such wonderful new friends and sharing awesome food and fabulous recipes! mcfm.morgan@gmail.com, 631-323-2320
