Healdsburg, CA, March 28, 2004...Gourmet specialty food producers will be the stars of a tasting to be held in the Napa Valley to benefit Slow Food USA. On Sunday, May 15 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm booths offering tastes of a wide variety of foods and wines will be arrayed throughout the Barrel Room of the Culinary Institute of America, Greystone in St. Helena.

The tasting will offer the opportunity to taste and purchase a variety of products made by some of California’s finest food and beverage purveyors, which are featured on SavorCalifornia.com. Fabrique Délices Charcuterie, Cheesecake Momma, Henry’s Olives, Lost Coast Brewery, Nana Mae’s organic apple juice, Skipstone Olive Oil, Sonoma Toffee, Porky’s Onion Relish, Santa Barbara Pistachios, All Star Gourmet sauces, and Carol Hall’s Hot Pepper Jelly are only a few examples.
Slow Food is an educational organization dedicated to promoting stewardship of the land and ecologically sound food production; reviving the kitchen and the table as the centers of pleasure, culture and community; and enjoying a slower, more harmonious rhythm of life.
SavorCalifornia.com is the online showcase for gourmet specialty foods and beverages from California — what’s good, who’s making it and where to find it. From its beginning in Sonoma County, the website is continually adding new producers from all over the state.
