Slow Food Russian River Book Group
The first gathering of the Slow Food Russian River Book Group was on Thursday, June 27, 2013. We said: This should be fun, and help us deepen our commitment to food that is Good, Clean, and Fair, for All, and help us to clarify our vision for the future of food and agriculture in Sonoma County.
In the beginning we met every other week (!), and ate only after finishing our conversation about the reading (!!). But even then the food and drinks we brought – often a creative response to the reading – as a gift to our companions was important and an essential component of our conviviality.
Nowadays, we first gather in the kitchen and enjoy a glass of wine or beer or kombucha and some appetizers before we move to the large table in the dining room to have a dinner conversation.
Come, join us. You may get hooked.
The Slow Food Russian River Book Group is open to anyone who is a reader, likes cooking a dish, and loves a good conversation. You don’t need to be a “card-carrying” member of Slow Food, although – of course – we hope that with time you will become one. A strong membership keeps our worldwide organization vibrant, through volunteering, ideas and initiatives, and financially strong through modest dues.
The Book Group meets the first Thursday of most months, from 7 – 9pm in Sebastopol, but not in January, June, July or August.
