Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto 2014
October 23-27, 2014 in Turin, Italy
The Olympics of Food
By Ellen Freytag, Slow Food USA Delegate
Individuals from all over the world who are passionate about good, clean and fair foodmake a pilgrimage to Turin/Torino every two years to be a part of the world’s largest food and wine fair, Salone del Gusto, and the concurrent world meeting of food communities, Terra Madre.
The best way I know to concisely describe Slow Food’s biggest international event is to tell you that it’s an Olympics for Food — except instead of the competitive “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” the motto of this Food Olympics is “Slower, Slower, Slower.” The convening begins with an opening ceremony, held in Turin’s Olympic Stadium. Official delegates from more than 100 countries gather to represent the very best of what their country’s food systems have to offer.
Join us for Slow Sips on November 4th, 6-8pm, in Balboa Park at Panama 66, one of our newest membership benefits partners!
As always, you’ll be able to learn more about getting involved in our grass-roots organization, sign up to be a volunteer, and meet and mingle with like-minded friends. There will be a cash bar and full menu available for ordering, and Slow Food Urban San Diego members will receive a 10% discount off food and drinks! Please let us know that you’re coming: RSVP here!
