Slow, Flat Food
“We must allow enough time to enjoy our food; we should share the act of eating with others; we ought to think of where the food came from and how it ended up on our plate,” Gabriella Pignatelli, writer of the hour-long documentary Slow Food Revolution, has said. “In this way we may all be part of the food revolution: maintaining biodiversity, producing nutritious food, eliminating poverty, protecting the environment, preserving traditions, and pampering our taste buds.”
Her film will screen as part of a tempting evening of food and thought at American Flatbread in Los Alamos (225 W. Bell St., 244-4400) on Thursday, August 30. The meal will feature tuna confit and shell bean salad, pulled pork flatbread or Yukon Gold potato with leek and gorgonzola flatbread, and pink pearl apple tart with honey ice cream and honeycomb. After the screening, Bob Banner of HopeDance will lead a discussion about how we can transform our lives one plate at a time.
