The Slow Food Story is a documentary that chronicles the rise and spread of the ‘Slow Food’ movement through a biography of its charismatic Italian founder, Carlo Petrini, and friends who accompanied him along their adventures. Director Stefano Sardo brings a decidedly down home approach, as he follows Carlo and his close-knit group of friends, from their earliest days as political radicals, to later struggles with unexpected tragedy. A joyous romp of a film, filled with all manner of delectable scenes of food, drink and song, Slow Food amply demonstrates that adventure is best served in heaping helpings. [courtesy of DOXA]

• In 1986, Carlo Petrini founded the ArciGola Gastronomic Association in Italy and three years later in Paris, launched Slow Food, an international anti-fast-food resistance movement. An ebullient presence, Carlìn, as he is affectionately known around the globe, has become an ambassador for thinking about food differently. From the tiny town of Bra, home to some 27,000 inhabitants, the Slow Food movement has grown to become a revolution that now has roots in more than 150 countries. Cheese-makers, vintners, and artisanal food folk, toast Slow Food for bringing about a change in consciousness that shook the very foundation of gastronomy.

• Suggested Donations: $5-10 per person. Bring a dish or treats to share with 4-6 people. BYOB welcome. RSVP with dish info to Jeff at x239. Events are 6-9 pm. Please send an RSVP to greenwichcenter@audubon.org or by voicemail to203-869-5272 x239. Meet for dinner at 6 pm or make the film at 7:30 pm.

POTLUCK DEFINED (wiki-ish): A potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people may contribute a dish of food prepared by the person or the group of people, to be shared among the group. The only traditional rule is that each dish be large enough to be shared among a good portion (but not necessarily all) of the anticipated guests. The SFMN rule is that you attempt to use local or organic ingredients in your meal. Ingredient list STUMPED FOR A POTLUCK DISH OR ITEM? CALL JEFF AT 203-613-8813.
