Field to the Fork – Dig In!

One of my favorite things about hanging out with Slow Food Temecula Valley folks like chapter president, Leah Di Bernardo, and Leonesse Cellars owner, Mike Rennie, is that they talk about farmers, chefs, winemakers, brewmasters and other local artisans like they are rock stars.  They name drop like groupies because they know that the people who care where our food comes from and that labor to produce it in a socially conscious way are greater heros than your typical celebrity.  Slow Food Temecula Valley and host Leonesse Cellars will be showcasing local food, wine, beer and artisans at Field to the Fork on May 21st from 1 – 5 pm. That’s this weekend, people!  Imagine wandering the vines and sampling amazing food, wine and beer from right here in our backyard.  Here is a taste of what you can expect from this exceptional event:

Temecula Valley Slow Food school garden program provides an opportunity for children to experience a seasonal, organic, edible garden as part of their education.  The children are able to connect with the source of their food and realize that they have wholesome alternatives to their typical school lunch fare.  With programs like Farm-to-School and Edible Schoolyard on the horizon, Slow Food Temecula Valley aims to inspire a transformation in food policy, production practices and market forces so that they insure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food that we eat.  This is a cause worth digging in to!  For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit:
