A Haunting Update from Slow Food

Here’s a post from our good friends at Slow Food USA.

Chef Forrest Parker is often asked what exactly sets the restaurant scene in Charleston apart from anywhere else. It really is about this process of Revival; the repatriation of grains, vegetables, fruits & legumes specific to the history of South Carolina.

This process in the SC Lowcountry is driven in large part by two primary groups working in tandem: the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation and Slow Food Charleston.

Their latest project is the repatriation of the famed Lemon Cling Peach- more to come on this delicious project! If you’re already in the know, you may already be planning to attend the Slow Foods Southeast Summit here in Charleston, May 15-17, 2020. This promises to be exciting, and DELICIOUS!

Here’s the update:


It’s that time of year again, when we all remember how devastatingly beautiful fall can be and get disproportionately excited about everything pumpkin.

The world around (some of) us turns yellow and orange and red, and we’re swapping swimsuits for sweaters, tomatoes for potatoes.

As cozy and romantic as this season can be, it can also be a little scary. Climate change is at the forefront of our minds and each unexpected weather pattern is a stark reminder of the changes happening to our environment and the challenges they present for the stewards of our land.

So, this month, we’re encouraging you to think about what it means to you to be a steward of this land and how we can bring climate action into our homes by way of our food choices and practices. We’re also introducing you to our end-of-year campaign celebrating 30 years since the signing of the Slow Food manifesto and telling you the story of some special Portland pickles.

Stay in the know and have fun with the ghouls and goblins this week.
