Activity: Launching the Slow Food movement in Chiang Mai

May 13, 2011

Why does not Chiang Mai have a Slow Food movement? A group of people will found a local convivium and you are welcome too! Read more here!

If you attend Pavlos lecture at Dokmai Garden on the 29th, you will learn more about the Slow Food movement, and how it can affect, health, fairness, quality and biodiversity.

Slow Food does not necessarily mean expensive. It means clean, fresh and pesticide free. It is slow, because somebody just cooked it, not just heated something from the freezer using a microwave. It contains natural flavours and colours, not MSG or other additions. This simple dish was based on chanterelle mushrooms (Cantharellus minor) growing within walking distance from Dokmai Garden. Preferably, the bread should be home-made or local, based on flour from farms caring for staff and biodiversity. Ambience is important too. Eating a meal on plastic plates two meters from roaring traffic is a different experience from eating a meal on chinaware in peaceful surroundings.

    Hello Eric and Khun Ketsanee,

    It’s Morris Dash from Soneva Kiri by Six Senses…your quasi-neighbor! Khun Ann and I would very much like to attend the meeting on June 3rd as we wish to become part of the Chiang Mai Slow Food Chapter. I will be leaving the hotel business and coming home to live permanently in Chiang Mai on June 2…so the timing could not be better.

    We will see you at the meeting, wherever the location may be.
