Kudos to Slow Food Utah leader Gwen Crist’s inspiration to create a food-themed book club in Salt Lake City. Here’s what City Weekly has to say in naming the book club for a 2012 “Best of” award:
Best Way to Cook a Book
Slow Foods Utah Book Club
While reading a book can be an especially personal experience, breaking the book down to its essence—its spices and herbs, if you will—is best done with a group. Since March 2010, the Slow Food Utah Book Club has read one food or food-policy book a month, which culminates with a scintillating discussion and potluck—with some dishes inspired by the current book. Some readers are regulars, others first-timers. Here, it’s OK to be a slow reader.”
Special thanks to Kings English for providing discounts for book purchases.
