Take it slow

After a short hiatus, Slow Food Sacramento is back in action, just in time for spring and a new growing season. The convivium (that’s Slow Food-ese for “local chapter”) recently held a meet and greet at the Supper Club, with yummy fare like arugula mascarpone wrapped in chive crepes and leg of rabbit with crunchy house-made pancetta on little potato rafts. More than 100 people turned out to enjoy it, but if you weren’t one of them, don’t despair: The Slow Food organizing committee promises lots more events to come, including a chef-led farmers’ market tour in June, a tomato tasting in August and much more.
