Reading at the Table


Join our new Slow Food Southern Arizona activity - Reading at the Table


During December and January, in honor of 25 years of Slow Food we are reading Alice Waters and Chez Panisse, by Thomas McNamme. Alice Waters introduced a new way of eating to America at her now famous Chez Panisse restaurant in Berekley, CA. Since 1971, Waters has been a champion of fresh local food, and has been called the "mother of American cooking." This is her story. 


Next month, we will gather to discuss the reading, and sample your food inspired by the book. With the number of Chez Panisse cookbooks available, you should have no trouble finding a recipe to make in your own kitchen!

Mark you calenders with date below to join us for potluck:

Sunday, January 18th @ 3pm


Please sign up now, so we know you're reading with us. Send an email to, with the word "Cooked" in the subject line. Then, put the date on your calendar.
