An Autumn of Slow Events

Germany - 18 Oct 11

The snail is on the move: After the regional Terra Madre meetings in South Korea, Crimea and Austria, this autumn’s international calendar is packed with events, in Japan and around Europe in Germany, France, Switzerland and Spain. The German city of Bremen will host Slow Fisch, from November 4 to 6, 2011. The sustainable fishing event is modeled on Slow Fish, held every two years in Genoa. Visitors to the event will be able to sample local fish and seafood specialties and all kinds of complementary products, like spices, beers and wines. In Switzerland, the first Slow Food Market Switzerland is coming soon. The first edition will be held in Zurich from November 11 to 13 and will feature over 150 quality producers, including all the Swiss Presidia, as well as taste workshops, seminars, entertainment for children and an enoteca space. Meanwhile Slow Food France is getting ready for the biennial Euro Gusto. From November 18 to 20 the city of Tours will host the second edition of this event dedicated to taste, biodiversity and food culture. Visitors can browse Presidia from France and other European countries in the producers’ market, while a number of Terra Madre food communities from Morocco, Georgia, Côte d’Ivoire and Mauritania have also been invited to attend. An enoteca with 650 wines, street theater performances, an education space and a rich program of taste workshops and seminars complete the picture. A new area, the espace métiers, will be dedicated to different professions within the restaurant industry. Two weeks later, the Terra Madre network will be coming together for the second time in Japan. Hundreds of producers from all over the country will be traveling to Unzen for Terra Madre Japan on December 3 and 4. Several sessions will focus on the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck the country in March, with accounts from producers from some of the worst-hit zones. Finally Bilbao will be hosting the second edition of Algusto – Saber y Sabor from December 16 to 19, bringing chefs, gastronomic experts and producers to the Basque city.
