Slow Food is a non-profit member supported International movement, 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.

Coffee and After Dinner Spirits/Digestives
Thursday, December 13th, 7pm to 9pm We decided to add an attraction to our seminar this month. After dinner a good cup of coffee deserves a good after dinner drink. We will be adding a portion to the coffee tasting that includes After Dinner Spirits. Led by a former Spirit Ambassador we will have a lesson in cordials, liqueurs, grappa/brandy, and how they are the finale of every great meal. We of course will also have some sweets to go with the coffee and spirits.
Please sign up now! Two seminars in one, everything you could ever want to know about coffee and after dinner spirits.
Philly Fair Trade Roasters, Joe Cesa who has a culinary background (starting as a Restaurant School grad) opened Philadelphia's first fair trade coffeehouse in 2002. Joe will explain the differences of coffee grading; fair trade vs. conventional market coffee and the living and working conditions of the producers; techniques pertaining to small-batch roasting; and doing some coffee tasting. Coffee has become an art form so here is a chance to learn all about the nuances of appreciating a good cup of Joe. Because it is the holiday we wanted to combine it with a selection of 3 After Dinner Digestive Spirits that complement a good cup of coffee. This part of the meal gets little respect. We are always in a hurry to rush away from the table, well here are some suggestions for you to relax and allow the food to digest and the conversation to flow.
| Thank You!|
