The Slow Food Cascadia Summit will include speaker lineups of regional food experts, activists, producers, chefs, and community leaders. The event will include a reception and networking designed to flow into the Cascadian Luau. This summit is designed to attract food movement leaders such as farmers and producers, active Slow Food members, organizational partners, chefs, and other food leaders.
The Summit is broken into two sessions, Rivers as Food followed by Slow Food Revolution. We will break between sessions for a salmon and wine tasting. Wines generously provided by Maryhill Winery.
Check out our speaker lineup below!
Summit Session ONE:
Rivers as Food 12:30 - 2:30
Wild Olympia Oyster
As a second-generation shellfish farmer, I’m energized by Slow Food’s focus on saving foods that are dying out. The Olympia oyster in our area is making a comeback. But this delicious native protein from our local waters will die out completely if we don’t protect and promote it. I’m a part of Slow Food Cascadia to tell its story and to hear about other vibrant foods that grow throughout this region.
BREAK - Salmon and Wine tasting 2:30 - 3:00
Wine provided by Maryhill Winery and Alaska King Salmon Tails provided by Seafood Producers Co-op in Bellingham.
