Slow Food NYC stands with and supports lots of other organizations that share our goal of moving towards a Good, Clean, and Fair food system. Each month we will post a round-up of events from other organizations that may be of interest.
In celebration of those grassroots activists working for a more democratic food system, the fourth annual Food Sovereignty Prize champions the right of people to determine their own food and agriculture policies and the grassroots groups that defend it!
To kick off the first (annual) NYC Meat Week (November 7th-12th) in style, "Meat with a Twist" will bring together the best chefs and mixologists for a cocktail-food pairing party on November 7th from 6-10 p.m. at City Winery. "Meat with a Twist" features 10 cocktails paired with 10 chef selections highlighting local, sustainably grown meat, such as duck, lamb, chicken, pork, beef, bison and ostrich. The party will launch a week's worth of events throughout the city that celebrate the slow food movement bringing sustainable meat to our tables.
