Wednesday, October 25, 8 pm, at Books & Books Coral Gables. Nancy Ancrum will introduce this special evening with the co-author of an entertaining history of the Slow Food movement. Italian Journalist Gigi Padovani takes the reader on a gastronomic journey in The Slow Food Revolution (Rizzoli, $24.95), co-written with Petrini, who was recently acclaimed as a great innovator in Time magazine's list of "European Heroes." Together, they point out the practices and traditions of the world's ethnic cuisines, from the artisanal cheeses of Italy to the oysters of Cape May and the native American turkey. It includes testimonies from Slow Food representatives—such as Alice Waters of Chez Panisse—illustrating exactly what they are doing—and what still needs to be done. This event is presented in collaboration with the Societa Dante Alighieri, the Consulate General of Italy and Slow Food Miami.
