Blue Bicycle Books, Charleston, SC

Slowcountry Food

Carlo_PetriniCarlo Petrini, founder of the Slow Food movement and author of Terra Madre, reception and signing at McCrady’s Restaurant, 2 Unity Alley, Tues., Feb. 23, 4 – 6 pm.  $10, Slow Food Charleston members, $15 for non-members.

Join Blue Bicycle Books, Slow Food Charleston and McCrady’s as we welcome the face of Slow Food to the Slowcountry.  Chef Sean Brock will host a welcome reception with ingredients from his restaurant’s own slo-cal farm.

Petrini, named one of Time Magazine’s 2004 Heroes, founded the Slow Food Movement in his home country of Italy to combat the ill effects of fast food, to preserve a culture’s cuisine and its associated agriculture, and, let’s face it, to stick it to McDonald’s, who were trying to put up some golden arches in his neighborhood.

So check your McGriddles at the door and come give a big Charleston buongiorno to Carlo.


signed copies will ship after Feb. 24




    Do I need a reservation for the Carlo Petrini reception? Thanks
