Bar Divani Slow Food Dinner - A Deliciously Diverse Edible Education Experience
What is Slow Food? Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment. A non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
Bar Divani is pleased to partner up with Slow Food West Michigan for a great night of food and fun. We will be featuring products from the Slow Food Ark of Taste (a list of endangered heirloom & heritage foods and food traditions) as well as products from local farms. Please see the delicious menu below.
