The second annual Eat Slow Seminar takes place on Saturday, dedicated to local, sustainable and fair food.
The one-day event at St. Mary’s Road United Church will include presentations on gardening, the culture of Aboriginal food and small goat farming. And yes, a real live goat will be there.
Cooking demos by Chef Ben Kramer will also be offered. Chef Ben heads up Diversity Food Services at the University of Winnipeg and was the former chef at Dandelion Eatery. He was named one of Canada’s top 40 foodies under 40 by Western Living magazine and winner of Winnipeg’s Iron Chef 2010.
The seminar is being put on by Slow Food — a non-profit organization founded in 1989 with over 100,000 members in 132 countries. Their missions is to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat.
