The Dallas Convivium of Slow Food was launched in the Spring of 2003 when interest in this area reached a critical mass. It is, by its nature, a grass-roots group that ebbs and flows based on what members want and contribute.
Slow Food in Dallas is growing because people are hungry for community, for good food, and for a slower paced life.
The local convivium is providing opportunities to learn about food production, ethnic and cultural influences, while helping people connect with like-minded folks. Our name says Dallas, but our members live in Addison, Aledo, Allen, Arlington, Carrollton, Cleburne, Coppell, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Flint, Fort Worth, Frisco, Glen Rose, Grand Prairie, Greenville, Hurst, Irving, Lewisville, McKinney, Plano and Tyler, Texas, and in Conway, Fayetteville, and Little Rock, Arkansas.
Slow Food Dallas is committed to providing a variety of offerings from member potlucks, and local producer tastings, to large group explorations in food and wine. The Dallas group will also work closely with the national office of Slow Food in New York to promote national projects at the local level. Life is too short, so why not slow down and actually taste the food you eat? And better yet, share that meal with friends, family, and neighbors.
