If food is the medium of your art, then it’s likely you are a subscriber to Sauce Magazine, our hometown guide to the best of the news for everyone who likes to eat, drink and socialize around these parts. If you’re nodding your head in recognition, I have to ask: Do you know about Slow Food St. Louis yet?

Slow Food St. Louis is not a publication, but a local group (actually a convivium*) of a larger international movement described on as,

Slow Food, founded in 1986, is an international organization whose aim is to protect the pleasures of the table from the homogenization of modern fast food and life. Through a variety of initiatives, it promotes gastronomic culture, develops taste education, conserves agricultural biodiversity and protects traditional foods at risk of extinction.”
