The San Francisco Bay Area is notable for its overflowing fount of foodies. After all, it's the home of Alice Waters. And the Ferry Plaza Farmers market. And Judy Rodgers. And hundreds of artisanal growers.
Today's San Francisco Chronicle announced that Ms. Waters is tentatively thinking of making it the home of the first major U.S. slow food show.
And that's not the only tasty tid bit in today's Chron food section: Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics, is doing several local speaking engagements as an outgrowth of her stint at UC Berkeley. Her profile includes details on those events.
