Foodie Book Club

Slow Food & Friends of Real Food Book Club

There a few things better than curling up with a good book.  How about curling up with a good book about food? Sounds good, right? Well, join Slow Food WiSE and Friends of Real Food for a monthly Foodie Book Club!
 

The book club is open to anyone who is interested, and will be led by board members and key volunteers from both groups. The book for August 2016 is Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food by Paul Greenberg.

Join us at the Riverside Urban Ecology Center for a lively discussion and potluck dinner!

Four Fish by Paul Greenberg

Thursday, August 18th, 6 – 8 pm
The Future of Fish – Wild, Farmed and GMO
Urban Ecology Center in Riverside Park

Why do four fish dominate our menus today? What should we think about genetically modified salmon? How we can start to heal the oceans and fight for a world where healthy and sustainable seafood is the rule rather than the exception?

Join us to watch a short video and to join our always lively discussion.

To prepare for our discussion, you could read two short articles (see links below). One is an interview with Paul Greenberg about his book and the 2nd is an article he wrote about genetically engineered salmon. Or, you could read his book, Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.

You are always welcome to join us watching the video and discussing the topics whether you’ve done the reading or not.
