Slow Food Connecticut is a local Chapter of Slow Food USA, a global grassroots movement “that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment”. Slow Food Connecticut offers educational events and activities that connect Connecticut’s eaters, farmers, cooks, educators and students while promoting agricultural sustainability and biodiversity.
Each year, Slow Food Connecticut hosts Tomato To-mah-to: An Hierloom Tasting Feast. Guests come together to celebrate local food and to taste hundreds of varieties of local vine-ripened, organically-grown heirloom tomatoes, hearth baked breads, artisanal virgin olive oils, and gourmet tomato dishes made by Connecticut chefs. The funds raised by this event support the work of the Slow Food Connecticut.
Slow Food Connecticut is all-volunteer run organization. If you would like to learn about volunteer opportunities, please contact Stacey Vairo, Chapter Leader.
