Bring your friends and enjoy an afternoon of food, wine, and live music!

You may buy your tickets on Brown Paper Tickets or send your check for $20/person, made out to Slow Food SCN, to Marisha Zeffer, 195 Westside Road, Healdsburg 95448.

Meet Astrid

Astrid Panizza is in the Local Development Master’s program at the University of Padua, Italy, focusing on community development. In her words, “My passion for protecting the traditions and preservation of our environment pushed me to become a member of my local Slow Food chapter more than a year ago. My research will ‘follow’ two products present in the U.S. Ark of Taste, the Red Bodega potato and Gravenstein apple. I will do interviews with producers and with those involved in saving the two products. Coming from Italy, the home of Slow Food, I want to explore the ways in which the work of this wonderful organization has spread throughout the world, beginning with the collective effort of individuals that came together for a shared purpose.”

You will have the opportunity to meet Astrid at future Sonoma County North events, especially Tastes & Tales of Terra Madre on May 13!
