Slow Food Columbia would like to congratulate Glenn Roberts on the recent news out of Slow Food USA of his appointment to the U.S. Ark of Taste committee! You can read more about Glenn and the Ark of Taste on the Slow Food USA website.
Here is the description of the Ark of Taste taken straight from Slow Food USA:
Ark of Taste nominations are reviewed by a committee of food lovers around the country, including home cooks, gardeners, culinary instructors, grocers, chefs, food historians and farmers. Committee members hold three-year terms, during which they review nominations and champion U.S. food biodiversity by organizing events, leading Ark food restoration projects, and contributing to Slow Food USA publications and education material.
Slow Food Columbia is a big fan of Anson Mills and is glad to learn of the growing SC presence on this committee (Emile DeFelice being another committee member). Three cheers!
