The news from the Food World is exciting. Michelle Obama is planting a garden at the White House, the New York Times asks "Is a Food Revolution Now in Season"? and my sister announced that she is tearing up her lawn and putting in an organic garden. I think Spring is coming and a bright sun will shine on the mission of Slow Food. Everyone has the right to a clean, fair and healthy food system.

In keeping with our mission, Slow Food Westchester continues to plan events to spread the word. This Wednesday, we are hosting a Sold-Out event with the Westchester and Rockland Dietetic Association at Peter Pratt's. You can learn more about it from my previous blog. It looks like the Press will be there and I will report back on it next week. Don't forget our second, LUNCH BUNCH, next Friday, April 3. Will get back soon on a location. Our monthly BREAKFAST MEETING, at the Bedford Post is on April 14. May 4th we will be hosting a LOCAL TASTING EVENT with the the Westchester and Lower Connecticut Chef's Association at the Doral Arrowood. More on that next week.

Out and about the county there is also much going on. Brian Lewis, of the famous, BEDFORD POST, is doing Sunday evening cooking classes. For $100 dollars you get to learn from best. Sign up yourself or get a group of friends together. You bring your own wine and eat what you cook. What more could you want. Call Deborah Burman at 914-234-7800. They are Sundays, from 5-8.

Also, my friend John Boy is moving down county. His fabulous food will be available at DeCicco's in Ardsley, 21 Center Street. Last week I bought 2 Pork Shoulders from John at the County Center and my family has been enjoying them all week. We had Pulled Pork, Carnitas, Asian Pork in Lettuce Wraps and have more in the freezer.

Have a great week and happy eating.

Who is this "John Boy" -- I'm so glad to hear that "slow" meat will be coming to Ardsley. What does he produce?

I'd also like to convince De Ciccos here to line up local produce for this summer.
