From Planet to Pies, since I like to work with local producers, like the wineries, the fruit growers, micro breweries and nut producers are great!
Phoenix Devour is for Trade Vendors only which really means that the food growers and producers are matched to cook up a storm for every one to taste.. I’m in!
For those of you who have not heard of it, or wonder what it all means – slow food? I went to their headquarters..this is their philosophy:
We believe that everyone has a fundamental right to pleasure and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of food, tradition and culture that make this pleasure possible. Our movement is founded upon this concept of eco-gastronomy – a recognition of the strong connections between plate and planet.
Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
We consider ourselves co-producers, not consumers, because by being informed about how our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become a part of and a partner in the production process.
In the United States, alone there are 200 chapters celebrate the amazing bounty of food that is available and work to strengthen the connection between the food on our plates and the health of our planet. Our members are involved in activities such as:
◆ Raising public awareness, improving access and encouraging the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal and sustainably grown
◆ Caring for the land and protecting biodiversity for today’s communities and future generations
◆ Performing educational outreach within their communities and working with children in schools and through public programs
◆ Identifying, promoting and protecting fruits, vegetables, grains, animal breeds, wild foods and cooking traditions at risk of disappearance
◆ Advocating for farmers and artisans who grow, produce, market, prepare and serve wholesome food
◆ Promoting the celebration of food as a cornerstone of pleasure, culture and community
If you would more information about the local chapters in your area you will find them here.
Please share this with your foodie friends..
Of course the challenge is finding live food events for consumers, vendors, farmers and the like during COVID.. the best way is to subscribe to newsletters that keep you informed..
Thank you for reading… catch up on other news and events that Sedona Pies participated in.
