Thanks Giving

Hey, just a quick post to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. I wanted to recognize it as one of the few really great American food traditions. It seems like the holidays are when all these great heritage recipes flood back to us, and we concentrate on the making of really good food and the enjoyment of that food with the people we love. That's what Slow Food is all about, but in all times beyond just the holidays.

Remember to keep it good, clean, and fair this thanksgiving, and show those local farmers some love. I'm thankful that we have a great community of citizens here in Cincinnati who care about their food and hope that we can become a solid partner in fostering our food connections in the area through the coming year.
